Breakdown - A pair of top 5 heavyweights take center stage Saturday night.
The undefeated Gane (8-0) has rattled off victories against Raphael Pessoa, Don'Tale Mayes, Tanner Boser, Junior Dos Santos and Jairzinho Rozenstruik since his promotional debut in August 2019. One of the most well-rounded fighters in the entire UFC, Gane has a staggering 5.04 significant strikers per minute which ranks 1st among active UFC heavyweights with at least 5 promotional fights and trails only (#7) Tom Aspinall who has 7.43 significant strikes per minute.
Volkov (33-8) holds back-to-back wins over Walt Harris and Alistair Overeem and has only come up short against Derrick Lewis and Curtis Blaydes since his UFC debut in November 2017. Widely regarded as one of the best kickboxers in the entire promotion, Volkov brutally knocked out both of the aforementioned Overeem and Volkov and also holds TKO/KO wins over Stefan Struve and former champion Fabricio Werdum.
