"The difference in age means nothing. Everything will be competitive. I think Fedor is experienced enough not to get caught up in pain. He will be concentrated.

"Do I believe in Fedor's victory at the Grand Prix? Of course, I will be rooting for him, it will be interesting to see. But my faith depends on the form of both fighters. Frank also did not perform for a long time, he had a longer break. Mir is a beatable rival, judging by his latest performances in the UFC. Fedor has higher chances.

"Is Mir dangerous? If his team bet on a tough fight, to work near a grid, clinch - in these aspects they may have an advantage. Mir is a little bigger in size, this should not be forgotten. But, I think, the fight will not work by this scenario. The fight will go in the stance, and Fedor has an advantage in it," said Volkov.
