Volkov may face Ngannou in Moscow

Ivan Bannikov the manager of Alexander Volkov commented to the press on the situation surrounding the future opponent for his ward.

"We were asked to arrange a rematch with Derrick Lewis. We are waiting for a response from the UFC. In any case, the battle of Alexander in Moscow will take place. We are ready to fight. And we sure will find a replacement.

"If UFC postpone Lewis fight against Blagoy Ivanov and give us Derrick for a rematch, everyone will be happy. There is another option with Ngannou, but I'm afraid it's more for pay-per-view, than for a fight in Moscow."

Today it was announced that Junior Dos Santos withdrew from his fight against Volkov. Their fight was supposed to headline UFC Fight Night 163, which will be held on November 9 in Moscow.
