Junior Dos Santos believes Ciryl Gane may have cheated during his win vs Tai Tuivasa during their fight at UFC Paris over the weekend.
On Saturday, Gane was able to knock out Tuivasa with a series of blows, a couple of which appeared to land behind Tuivasa’s head.
Former UFC champion Junior Dos Santos noticed the hammerfists to the back of the head and called Gane a cheater on social media.
“What a dirty fighter this Gane is,” Dos Santos wrote on Twitter. “Again hitting the back of the head. And now what are those ‘fight experts’ [sic] will say about it?”
Apparently Gane had hit Dos Santos in the back of he head during their fight as well.
Fans fired back at Dos Santos by showing instances in which he has punched people in the back of the head.
At the end of the day it appeared that Tuivasa was already hurt and going down before the hammerfist to the head. Tuivasa has yet commented if he felt the punch was dirty or not.
