Russian heavyweight contender Alexander "Drago" Volkov needed a little over two minutes to bounce back from his recent defeat as he returned to form with an impressive first-round finish of Jairzinho Rozenstruik at UFC Fight Night 207 in Las Vegas.
UFC officials will be hoping that Saturday night's UFC Fight Night 207 event in Las Vegas goes as smoothly as Friday's weigh-ins after a drama-free session at the UFC Apex this morning.
Tom Aspinall delivered a star-making performance in the main event of UFC London as he finished longtime heavyweight contender and former Bellator heavyweight champion Alexander Volkov via first-round submission at the O2 Arena.
After all 24 fighters successfully made weight ahead of their respective bouts on Friday morning, they rehydrated and headed to the O2 Arena, where they faced off for the final time ahead of UFC London.
With sporting sanctions being applied to Russian teams and athletes across the world, Alexander Volkov's involvement in the UFC London main event is now in doubt.
Hot on the heels of the announcement of the UFC’s return to London, the event now has a scheduled main event, with Dana White revealing England's Tom Aspinall is set to face Alexander Volkov at The O2 Arena on March 19.
