It's always exciting and unpredictable when the heavyweights are in action, and two high profile big men are in this UFC Fight Night main event. One is hoping that a win can earn him 'next' after the heavyweight title match this August. The other wants another chance to hit the big time after seeing a clear win turn into a knockout loss with just 11 seconds left in a fight. You can live stream these heavyweights as they clash by watching Blaydes vs. Volkov in UFC Fight Night, available on both ESPN and ESPN Plus (ESPN+).
When is UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. Volkov?
UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. Volkov is broadcasting from the UFC APEX Facility on Saturday, June 20. This Fight Night is available on both ESPN and ESPN+, with the Prelims starting at 5 p.m. Eastern time and the Main Card begins at 8 p.m. Eastern.
UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. Volkov — The Main Event Preview
Curtis "Razor" Blaydes (13-2) is the third ranked contender in the heavyweight division, and a win on Saturday night could be his key to a title fight. The current champion, Stipe Miocic, is already set to fight the number one contender and former champ Daniel Cormier in August. The second ranked contender has already lost to Miocic in a title fight, so Blaydes could make a more compelling opponent for the winner of Miocic vs. Cormier 3.
Blaydes is riding a three fight win streak, and fans should keep their eyes glued to this entire fight, cause it can end at any moment. Ten of Blaydes thirteen wins have come by knockout, so if he gets an opening it could be time for Volkov to say goodnight.
Alexander "Drago" Volkov (31-7) is the seventh ranked contender in the heavyweight division, and this big Russian MMA fighter is looking to make his mark in the UFC. Volkov has been a winner and champion in M-1 and Bellator promotions, and this will be just his seventh fight in the UFC. This will be his third headline spot on a UFC Fight Night, and he is 2-0 in the Main Event slot with wins over Stefan Struve and Fabricio Werdum.
Volkov's only UFC loss was an absolute heartbreaker. He dominated Derrick Lewis at UFC 229 most of the fight, and was way ahead on points before being knocked out by Lewis with just 11 seconds left in the final round. After bouncing back with a win over Greg Hardy, Volkov can use this fight to make a big move in the heavyweight rankings.
