Fabricio Werdum-Alexander Volkov To Fight March 17th In London


Heavyweight contenders Fabricio Werdum and Alexander Volkov will headline UFC Fight Night in London on March 17th.

UFC has struggled to find a headline bout. Michael Bisping had expressed interest in a retirement bout but later passed on the opportunity.

Werdum (23-7-1), 40, aims to earn a future title shot to regain the belt he surrendered to Stipe Miocic back in 2016 and is on a two-fight winning streak after beating Walt Harris and Marcin Tybura.

Volkov (29-6) is coming off a 3rd-round knockout victory over Stefan Struve, his 5th win in a row, and has 19 career knockout wins.
