Potential spoiler below:







































Great battle between two guys who are good on both the feet and the ground. If it had went to decision, that would've been interesting. Volkov did a nice job of adjusting mid-fight to Werdum's game and he really took over towards the end. I don't really see him as a threat to Stipe, though.

If he had trouble handling Werdum's wrestling, Stipe will be a nightmare for him. Stipe's hands and power are also on another level. A fight between him and Ngannou would be interesting, see if he has what it takes to weather the storm. I think he could finish Ngannou in that position unlike Stipe because he's better on the ground, although Stipe is better standing and with wrestling.

A very honorable defeat, victory even was his for a while...
Nice main event.

No idea why Werdum didn't go for a leg lock he had position multiple times but instead would try and roll underneath to get the back. Volkov doesn't appear to hit very hard but looking at Werdum's face it is obvious he does. I think that last series of ducking my head and flailing was a form of tap out by Werdum. One of those odd heavy weight fights where everything looks so slow and lumbering but actually a lot happening. I did find some of the commentary funny particularly the comment of everyone is the same size when on the ground but then they both start harping on how Werdum can't do much in the guard because of Volkov's long body.
I think Volkov is better but he kind of reminds me of Struve where he doesn't really use the reach to set anything up, definitely don't see him doing well against Stipe. Werdum once again is out of title contention, not sure why these fighters on the cusp are taking the risk against lower ranked opponents.

Very good battle.

I'm sorry to see Werdum lose, because I'm afraid that, at 40, he might be starting to fade.
Of course, 4 HW fights in 8 months is tough for a HW of any age.

Werdum was clumsy and awkward.  Volkov landed a stiffy that was well placed is all.  No exceptional power.  I doubt he will fare well against any of the 4 in front of him now, nor the likes of Blaydes or Lewis for that matter.  Volkov's ranking was manufactured, and where he sits now after this win is just as silly.

I felt Werdum began to fade early in this fight, despite being in top position for most of round 1. By round 4 as said above, he clearly just gave up. He knew he had nothing left in the tank, so decided to swing wildly for a KO, but Volkov was waiting and way ahead of those wild swings. Nice accurate striking to finish him.

Can’t blame Werdum at 40 years old though and still being ranked 3... Amazing.

Good fight and entertaining.
