“Volkov could have been UFC champion a long time ago.” It seems that Drago will still get the title

The Russian has restarted his career and is destroying the division.

Alexander Volkov is 34 years old. On the night of September 9-10 at the UFC 293 tournament in Australia, the Russian fought his next fight in the best promotion on the planet. The opponent was the formidable Tai Tuivasa, who was higher up the division standings and played to deafening support from his compatriots. But Drago showed that he is on top, so he is not going to stop. It seems that Volkov only has one goal ahead of him: the coveted championship belt.

Volkov’s UFC career had its fair share of tough moments and painful losses. For example, with Derrick Lewis, when the Russian was only 11 seconds away from victory. Or a failed fight with Aspinall, where he had to capitulate in the first round. But Alexander did not lose his championship ambitions and continued to work on himself. As a result, Drago achieved two victories in a row and approached Tuivasa in excellent condition.

The most striking details of the tournament:

Volkov literally tore Tai apart. He perfectly understood when he would attack the opponent and how exactly he would attack. Therefore, he calmly greeted any attempt by the Australian to include his favorite Bam-Bam style. Frankly, the Russian himself acted this way. Already in the second round, the advantage in accurate blows to the head became colossal. In such a situation, finishing early seemed like just a matter of time. It is even more surprising that the victory was achieved on the ground, in the fight.

Let’s remember the highlights of the fight:

A unique victory for Volkov in the UFC! The real Drago is tough and cold-blooded.

Now the main question arises: what will the UFC bosses prepare for Volkov next? The Russian made a phenomenal move, so it is simply impossible to ignore him. Furthermore, the main characters of the organization are one step away from ending their careers. This applies to both champion Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic. The fighters will have a face-to-face match, after which they may leave in unison.

Four real title contenders then emerge, including two Russian wrestlers. These are Volkov, Sergei Pavlovich, Cyril Gan and Tom Aspinall. And then it all depends on the wishes of those responsible for the promotion, who can surprise you with the choice of the next champion of the division.

Many are sure that if Alexander gets a title shot, he will definitely take advantage of the situation. For example, Oleg Taktarov spoke about Drago’s championship prospects: “By all technical indicators of him, he is the strongest in his weight class. He’s fine. Both on the ground and in wrestling, everything is in his place.

If you correct one psychological problem, the rest will follow in the same way; maybe not in the first round, but with a lot of confidence. From what I saw, I conclude that he could have been UFC champion a long time ago.”

Volkov definitely deserved his spot in the title fight with his latest results. Therefore, I want to believe that he will definitely get the chance for him. Of course, the other contenders seem like more viable options. But I want to believe that Volkov will be rewarded for his efforts and diligence. And there is confidence that no one will simply turn against the Russians.
