It’s time to find out who will be victorious in the upcoming heavyweight showdown between Curtis Blaydes and Alexander Volkov. Both men have a lot at stake in this fight and fans are eager to see how the bout pans out.
Both fighters have impressive records leading up to their meeting, with Blaydes boasting an impressive 14-2 record since making his professional MMA debut back in 2014 and Volkov recording an even more astonishing 26-8 mark over the course of his career. On paper, this looks set to be a titanic battle as both men come into it as highly accomplished mixed martial artists. Nevertheless, one fighter is more likely than not going to emerge victorious on June 20th.
According to Bookmakers’ odds, there is no doubt that Blaydes enters this fight as the overwhelming favorite given he stands at 1/3 while Volkov’s chances of winning sit way down at 3/1 despite his experience and skill thus far ‘in cage’ fighting matches. This should come as no surprise considering that Blaydes has been consistently taking on -–and dispatching – some of UFC’s top heavyweights since 2012 whereas for all his accomplishments inside the octagon so far; 31 year old Volkov from Saint Petersburg only stepped foot inside UFC last autumnback when defeating former champion Fabricio Werdum by unanimous decision .
