It’s an interesting match-up, not only because Struve is 7’0 feet tall and Volkov is 6’7, but it’s a pivotal scrap for both men. Volkov has gone 2-0 to date in the UFC, and if he wins today, a fight with a top five ranked heavyweight could be next.
Struve, meanwhile, has won two straight and has looked dominant in both outings. So, if he can defeat the former Bellator champ, then another, big stakes fight will surely follow.
Recently the UFC posted the video below, which features both Struve and Volkov discussing today’s bout.
