UFC London card is short one fight for weight issues

Shannon Reynolds | 19 March, 2018, 01:34

Early in the fourth round, Werdum made his final stand and let his hands fly.

Volkov and Werdum had trained together in the past. A back and forth, plodding heavyweight battle sent Volkov into the title picture and Werdum back to the drawing board. This unified his interim belt that he won by knocking out Mark Hunt with a flying knee. Though Miocic and Cormier's heavyweight title showdown is still a ways away, Volkov sounds content to wait for a shot at the victor - perhaps even this fall when the UFC debuts in Russian Federation. Since suffering a Majority Decision loss to Alistair Overeem back in July, "Vai Cavalo" has racked up two-straight wins inside the cage. Volkov followed the former champ to the ground and landed two more punches that rendered Werdum unconscious.

"I'll be waiting for the stronger guy", Volkov said.

There were four submissions, one knockout and one split decision on the undercard. Really, the fight seemed like a way to get Manuwa, an English native, on the London card.

"I think I deserve a title shot right now", Volkov said at the UFC London post-fight press conference (h/t Forbes).

Change is afoot in the division for sure.

Russia's Vladimir Putin wins election to rule fourth term by big margin
Russian authorities are appealing to the United Nations and Council of Europe to intervene, according to Russian news agencies. Ukraine said the move was to protest voting Sunday in Crimea, whose annexation is still not internationally recognized.

Alexander Volkov on how the fight went: "We were playing with each other and getting under each others' skin". He has been submitted twice in his career but they both came before 2011.

Volkov walks away in victory. We last saw Volkov piece up the 6 foot 11 inch Struve on the feet. The Canadian dropped and quickly found himself locked into a tight guillotine, he scrambled to get out, but Henry held on and secured the victory only 40 seconds into the first round.

During one of those exchanges, Drago managed to swell and cut Werdum's right eye, leaving his opponent with a limited vision. "I work with wrestling and jiu-jitsu a lot, but I prefer to use my striking".

Werdum has been hit by the likes of Fedor Emelianenko, Stipe Miocic and Alistair Overeem throughout his lengthy mixed martial arts career but Tyson is a different animal entirely.

- Craig and Volkov would win $50,000 "Performance of the Night" bonuses.
