Alistair Overeem was on his way to earn a UFC heavyweight title match this year.
“Reem” was on a two-fight winning streak and if he could get past Alexander Volkov it would be very difficult for Dana White and co to not give him a title shot.
That being said, Alexander Volkov had other plans for the Dutch Fighter. The Russian showcased beautiful boxing skills and was dominating from start to finish.
After the fight, the 40-year-old “Demolition Man” released a statement announcing that Volkov broke his nose in the very first round.
“You’re a true warrior Alexander Volkov. Congrats on the win!” Overeem wrote. “Yesterday wasn’t my night. I could not recover from that punch in the first round after I broke my nose. My highest priority right now is to heal up and spend some well deserved time with the family. I’ll be back in the gym soon though. Thank you all for your support! I see the comments, you guys are the best.”
