Who will win Blaydes vs Volkov?
There have been a number of recent upsets in the Octagon, including last week's UFC Fight Night: Eye vs Calvillo. Top-ranked Jessica Eye lost a unanimous decision to Cynthia Calvillo.
It is often tricky picking likely heavyweight winners too as both combatants have the ability to knock out an opponent in a moment's notice. That's exactly what happened to Volkov (31-7) in his last defeat, when leading his clash with Derrick Lewis in October 2018.
That is Volkov's only loss in his past 8 fights dating back to 2016. Blaydes (13-2) is a star on the rise for a reason. He has also won seven of his past eight clashes, with his only loss in that time to Francis Ngannou. We're picking "Razor" Blaydes to continue his march towards a shot at a championship belt.
