UFC Fight Night London – Werdum Vs. Volkov


IMG_2344.JPG

This Card is rather Luck-laster which is why it is on fight pass. The Card does, however, have some interesting fights and while I don’t expect you to be glued to your television on Saint Patrick’s Day afternoon to watch two guys who don’t have pronounceable last names throw fists, I do expect you to pay attention to the fights on Twitter and social media while you go chugging bud light and paying homage to my people by getting very, very drunk.

Leon Edwards (-215) Vs. Peter Sobotta (+185)

These two young and exciting prospects come from the welterweight division, a division that is more stacked than any other, and both possess wins over quality opponents. Edwards has wins over Bryan Barberena, Vicente Luque, and Albert Tumenov while Peter Sobotta has wins over Ben Saunders, Nic Dalby, and Pawel Pawlak. I believe Edwards level of competition in both his training and in his Octagon experience will propel him to a unanimous decision victory. Leon Edwards Def. Peter Sobotta

Tom Duquesnoy (-350) Vs. Terrion Ware (+285)

Poor Terrion Ware, I feel like he is always the sacrificial lamb to these young prospects. first, it was Cody Stamann than it was Sean O’Malley, now he has to take on Tom Duquesnoy, the pride of French MMA. This really sucks for Ware, as one more loss in a row will likely result in his leaving the promotion. I believe Duquesnoy will win by some kind of flashy knockout that Stamann nor O’Malley could do to Ware. Tom Duquesnoy Def. Terrion Ware

Jan Blachowicz (+180) Vs. Jimi Manuwa (-210)

These two are on very different paths in the UFC at the moment, Manuwa is on the brink of a title shot with one or two more impressive wins, while Jan Blachowicz is still trying to show that he can compete with the best of the division. In the UFC Blachowicz is 4-4 with his most impressive win coming over Ilir Latifi back in 2014. Manuwa is 6-3 in the UFC with his most impressive win coming over Ovince St. Preux. Manuwa has only ever lost in his home nation of Great Britain once, and it was at the hands of his good friend and certified killer Alexander Gustafsson. I’m not holding that result against him and I say that Manuwa rebounds from his Oezdemir loss via an early stoppage. Jimi Manuwa Def. Jan Blachowicz

Fabricio Werdum (-190) Vs. Alexander Volkov (+165)

Now, this is what I call a fight that was made a month ago. Two high-level fighters who are not on the same level but are fighting each other because the UFC needed a main event better than Manuwa Vs. Blachowicz. Regardless, I think this is going to be a rather interesting fight. The experienced Fabricio Werdum has not fought anyone with Volkov’s reach advantage and I’m interested in seeing how Werdum attacks this fight. I feel like this is going to be the next fight that Werdum flying face kicks Volkov to open the engagement. He has done it 3 times before and the last time was against Travis Browne, a man with the same height as Volkov. Volkov has wins over Stefan Struve, Roy Nelson, and Tim Johnson in the UFC and hasn’t lost since June of 2015, I am just not sure this impressive streak will be able to continue against the Experienced Fabrico Werdum. Fabricio Werdum Def. Alexander Volkov.

Other Selections:

Honestly, I don’t know over half of the fighters fighting on the undercard. I’ll just make it known that I want Kajan Johnson to win so he can keep questioning the system.
