UFC Fight Night features Alexander Volkov and Jairzinho Rozenstruik challenging each other for far more than just one win. This match features two fighters that were on the cusp of getting into the conversation for a title fight, but each of them lost their last encounter. A loss in this one will put the loser far back in the conversation and lower their ability for a hefty paycheck.
Volkov comes in as the #7 in his division and was a promising prospect but just hasn’t gotten over the hump to very good. He defeated Walt Harris and Allistair Overeem by TKO. that put him in line for an eliminator fight and promptly lost by unanimous decision to Ciryl Game. Next up was Marcin Tybura whom he defeated. On march 19 he lost to Tom Aspinall.
Volkov uses his arms and legs well to place damage on his rivals. He is a big fighter and he is not particularly quick in the octagon. He prefers to fight standing up.
Sat, Jun 4 / 3:00 PM CDT / Main Card
UFC APEX in Las Vegas
Jairzinho Rozenstruik was a quick success as he won his fist ten fight but then he went on to lose three of his next five encounters. He has some success but some utterly weird losses and can’t stay consistent. In his twelve wins, he won eleven of them by KO. He is a potent puncher. He is also a stand up fighter and not a good wrestler.
UFC Fight Night Prediction
Look for Volkov (-165) to win because his legs and jabs along with his reach will be too much for Roenstruik (+260) . This will like be a Volkov win by decision.
