The TOP 10 heavyweight fight of today’s Curtis Blaydes and Alexander Volkov will take place on June 20, which was also the originally scheduled date, but there has been a change of location.
Blaydes (13-2-1 nc) and Volkov (31-7) were supposed to lead UFC Fight Night in Saskatoon, but due to a coronavirus pandemic, their meeting was moved to Las Vegas. More precisely in the Apex complex where the last event with Gilbert Burns and Tyron Woodley in the lead roles took place.
According to ESPN, ‘Razor’ and ‘Drago’ remain the main fight of the upcoming Fight Night, so their match is arranged for five rounds.
For Blaydes, who stopped former champion Junior dos Santos in their last appearance, this will be an opportunity to record their fourth victory in a row.
On the other hand, the experienced Russian knockout enters this match for the first time after beating Greg Hardy in Moscow. Volkov has recorded five wins since his arrival in the UFC and only one defeat inflicted on him by Derrick Lewis.
