Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a few hours away from its UFC on ESPN 11 “Blaydes vs. Volkov” mixed martial arts (MMA) event, featuring a heavyweight headliner between top-ranked bruisers Curtis Blaydes and Alexander Volkov TONIGHT (Sat., June 20, 2020) inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Blaydes (13-2, 1 NC) is riding a three-fight win streak, which includes his technical knockout victory over former champion, Junior dos Santos, at UFC Fight Night 166 back in January. “Razor” has only been defeated by heavyweight power puncher, Francis Ngannou, and has otherwise been perfect inside the Octagon.
Volkov (31-7) rebounded from an upset loss to Derrick Lewis to hand Greg Hardy the first defeat of his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) career. “Drago” has won seven of his last eight and stands at No. 7 in the official rankings, four spots below Blaydes at No. 3.
