Main Card (UFC Fight Pass)
Alexander Volkov -125 vs. Stefan Struve
This battle of heavyweights highlights the card in Rotterdam. Volkov is 28-6 overall and 2-0 in the UFC, while Struve is 28-8 and 12-6 in the UFC. Volkov is coming off a win against Roy Nelson in April. He has 18 knockout wins in his career and 15 finishes in the first round. Struve has won his last two bouts, as he beat Antonia Silva last May and he beat Daniel Omielanczuk last October.
Volkov and Struve are both heavy hitters so this fight may not last long. Struve has already said to expect a knockout. “Fans always wanna see finishes. I don’t like decisions. I like to end the fight on my terms.” Struve said on the UFC YouTube channel. “This is an exciting fight because it’s two of the tallest strikers with a lot of finishes on their record. The world’s waiting to see who is the best tallest fighters. Everybody understands that this is not going to a decision.”
Volkov said that everyone will start to realize just how good he is after this fight against Struve. “I don’t think I have reached my full potential as a UFC fighter yet. This fight with Stefan Struve will show how good I am. It will put me one fight closer to the title belt.”
I will take Struve in this fight and I also think taking the rounds to go under might be even a better bet.
