Curtis Blaydes did exactly what he set out to do.
Blaydes made it four wins in a row following a dominant unanimous decision victory over Alexander Volkov in the UFC Vegas 3 headliner on Saturday night.
Utilizing his wrestling and grappling as he always does, Blaydes had the upper hand for the first three rounds. However, he tired later on which allowed Volkov to have his moments in the final two rounds.
