UFC heavyweight division number six Alexander Volkov, coming off his third straight early victory ten days ago, is ready to get back into the title race.
The Russian fighter informed his fans about it in the social network.
“Emotions after the fight have subsided,” “Drago” wrote. “Now I’ll take a little break, literally a couple weeks, recover, and with new strength I’ll break into the race for the championship belt. Screencap!”
On Sept. 9 at UFC 293 in Sydney, Alexander Volkov forced a second-round submission of Australian Ty Tuivasa, becoming the third fighter in the organization’s history to finish a fight by Ezekiel choke.
In an interview after the event, the Russian stated that he would like to rematch the defeats he suffered in confrontations with Cyril Gan and Tom Aspinall, ranked first and fourth in the division, respectively.
Recall that the UFC heavyweight title is currently held by American Jon Jones, who will defend the belt against his compatriot Stipe Miocic on November 11 at UFC 295 in New York, and possibly end his professional career there.
