Set to return from a week’s hiatus, the UFC Apex facility is set to host a heavyweight main event between division strikers, Alexander Volkov, and Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
Attempting to rebound to the winner’s enclosure, Moscow-born kickboxing talent, Volkov headlined UFC Fight Night London back in March against Tom Aspinall, suffering a one-sided first round straight armbar loss.
For Rozenstruik, the Suriname native featured at UFC 266 last September, dropping a unanimous decision defeat against common-opponent and wrestling talent, Curtis Blaydes over the course of three rounds.
