Alistair Overeem vs Alexander Volkov full fight video preview for UFC Vegas 18 main event

Alistair Overeem and Alexander Volkov will collide for a spot in the 265-pound title chase when they hook ‘em up in the UFC Vegas 18 heavyweight main event, scheduled for five, five-minute rounds TONIGHT (Sat., Feb. 6, 2021) inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Check out their fight video preview embedded above.

Overeem (47-18, 1 NC), who turns 41 in May, insists he’s retiring after “one last run” at the heavyweight title, which translates into “one more loss” because that’s all it takes to send the hot-and-cold “Demolition Man” to the back of the line.

Bookies have Overeem pegged as the betting underdog.

As for Volkov (32-8), his goal is to snap the Dutchman’s two-fight winning streak and replace him in the Top 5 of the division. “Drago” was last seen beating the brakes off Walt Harris at the UFC 254 pay-per-view (PPV) event last October in Abu Dhabi. will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC Vegas 18 fight card RIGHT HERE, starting with the ESPN+ “Prelims” matches at 5 p.m. ET, then the remaining main card balance on ESPN+ at 8 p.m. ET.
