UFC Moscow staredowns: Greg Hardy looks tiny next to the mighty Alexander Volkov

With Junior dos Santos out of commission, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has asked Greg Hardy to jump in on short notice to fight No. 7-ranked Alexander Volkov in the upcoming UFC Moscow co-main event this Sat. (Nov. 9, 2019) inside CSKA Arena in Moscow, Russia.

Before these two mammoth heavyweights get busy inside the Octagon, the promotion had them come face-to-face at the conclusion of the UFC Moscow media day, which also featured the featherweight headliner between Zabit Magomedsharipov and Calvin Kattar.

“They should expect a whole lot of war,” Hardy told the crowd in Moscow (via RT Sport). “I love Russia. You guys are awesome. Sick country, man. I love you guys! And expect war, man. A whole lot of blood, a whole lot of fun, and a show!” will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC Fight Night 163 fight card on Saturday (click here), starting with the ESPN+ “Prelims” undercard bouts at 11 a.m. ET, followed by the ESPN+ main card start time of 2 p.m. ET.
