Volkov: "I proved that I am one of the best strikers in the UFC"
UFC Heavyweight Alexander Volkov commented on the victory over Jairzinho Rezenstruik at UFC Fight Night 207 in Las Vegas. The Russian won by technical knockout in the first round.
“Happy to be back on the winning track. I managed to do everything I set out to do. I made no mistakes, everything went perfectly. I saw his previous fights and I shouldn't have let him go forward with punches - my job was to press and kick back. As a result, he had to retreat, and I did my job at the net.
I had a "B" plan - it was to take the fight to the ground and show how good I was on the ground. But Plan A worked, and I proved that I am one of the best strikers in the UFC," Volkov said at a press conference.
