In UFC 293’s hard-hitting Heavyweight co-main event, No-6-ranked fan favorite, Tai Tuivasa, locks horns with towering Russian, Alexander Volkov (No. 8).

Also on the PPV card is a middleweight contender’s match between Robert Whittaker vs. Dricus Du Plessis, which could very well determine who Israel Adesanya faces next at UFC 293 in Sydney, Australia.
