UFC Takes Octagon International This Coming Weekend

Alexander Volkov headlines UFC Fight Night this Saturday night against Tom Aspinall from England live on ESPN+.

The Octagon heads to London for UFC Fight Night: Volkov vs. Aspinall.

In the main event live on ESPN+ Saturday, Alexander Volkov battles Tom Aspinall in a heavyweight contest.

The card also features Arnold Allen meeting Dan Hooker and Paddy Pimblett battling Rodrigo Vargas. 

Gunnar Nelson, Nikita Krylov and Shamil Abdurakhimov are also expected to be in action.

Volkov, a former Bellator heavyweight champion, enters off a decision win in October over Marcin Tybura. He is 34-9 overall and 3-1 over his last four. 

That run includes finishes of both Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris, which positioned him for a showdown with Ciryl Gane. Volkov, though, was bested by Gane. 

Aspinall will be fighting in front of his home fans. The English fighter is 11-2 and on a seven-fight win streak. 

He has topped Sergey Spivak, Andrei Arlovski and Jake Collier among his UFC fights. 

Allen will also be the hometown fighter, bringing a stellar 17-1 record into action with Hooker. He has reeled off wins over Sodiq Yusuff, Nik Lentz and Gilbert Melendez, but has fought just those three times since 2019.

Hooker is just 1-3 over his last four, but the losses have come at the hands of Michael Chandler, Dustin Poirier and Islam Makhachev.
