UFC Vegas 56 Full Fight Card Additional Info

The clash between two stand-up warriors – Alexander Volkov and Jairzinho Rozenstruik – headlines the upcoming UFC fight card.

Karate black belt Volkov is known for excellent Brazilian kicks and great takedown defense.  A heavy-handed counter specialist is very patient and always ready to put his opponent to sleep via the counter. Volkov is looking to get back into the winning column after a surprising rear-naked choke loss to a high-level English heavyweight prospect Tom Aspinall, so the stakes are high.

Jairzinho Rozenstruik, the first-ever ranked Surinamese UFC fighter, is known for very crisp and powerful strikes and fabulous toe-to-toe exchange. He stays focused for 25 minutes, so the diehard MMA fans can expect a vicious knockout here.

In the main event, the BJJ black belt Dan “50K” Ige will try to parry an undefeated Russian wrestler Movsar Evloev. Cage control and top ground game definitively go in the favor of Evloev, but the Hawaiian’s bottom grappling is very dangerous, especially thanks to his submission switches. Dan is better on the feet and inside the clinch but Evloev’s chin is strong, so this war could last for three rounds.
