Hit on the table Alexander Volkov. The Russian, 33 years old and a heavyweight veteran in the UFC, vindicated himself in the main event of UFC Las Vegas 56. He had a tough test against Jairzinho Rozenstruik. The one from Suriname is a dangerous man, but the Russian knocked him out in the first round and then he was very clear: “The division is a bit stagnant, but I want to fight as soon as possible. I’m prepared for whatever comes“, noted the number seven in the heavyweight ranking in the octagon.
The fight, as expected, had its key point in the difference in size between both fighters. Vokov was much bigger and that made him stay at a distance. He took out several hands and stayed away to avoid Rozenstruik’s bombs. The Russian’s first mistake came when he attempted a kick and Jairzinho caught it. He connected, but Volkov knew how to get out of there. He again pressed at distance and put his opponent with little outlet. “I knew that he has bad defense when he is near the cage, it was my moment,” Volkov revealed. He had it well studied. With a right hand he left him floating and with a flurry of four blows he caused the referee to stop.. Fair, although Jairzinho later protested. Aleksandr Volkov has not yet said the last word about him.
