In Episode 3 of Francis Ngannou’s Ciryl Gane Fight Camp, the heavyweight champion lets fans in on ‘Sicko Saturday’ as he prepares for his heavyweight title unification bout against interim heavyweight champion, Ciryl Gane, at UFC 270 on Jan. 22 in Anaheim California.
In the video, Ngannou explains sicko Saturday as being somewhat like cardio MMA training.
“Sicko Saturday. Today is Saturday, so it’s sicko. Kind of like cardio,” Ngannou explained.
“So we’re gonna be doing stuff similar to fighting. Get in all the positions we would get in, (in) the fight, but keep on going without break and everything for the fight duration.”
