Junior dos Santos vs Alexander Volkov to headline UFC Moscow

The UFC will be returning to Moscow on November 9th, and the main-event is not set to disappoint.

As the 3rd consecutive heavyweight to headline a UFC in Russia, technical striker Alexander ‘Drago‘ Volkov looks to get back in the win-column, when he fights former heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos. The two previous cards in Russia were headlined by Mark Hunt vs Aleksei Olenik & Alistair Overeem vs the aforementioned Olenik.

Junior ‘Cigano‘ dos Santos is also looking to get back to his winning ways. Despite riding a 3-fight win-streak and being on the cusp of a title shot, JDS was brutally finished by Francis Ngannou. As a veteran of the heavyweight division, the fight with Volkov is a fresh matchup.

For Volkov, this fight could be the road back to title contention. A win over a legend in dos Santos could place firmly back into the title picture, where he was before his loss to Derrick Lewis. ‘Drago‘ was the owner of an impressive 6-fight win-streak before October of 2018.
