UFC is making its return to Russia this autumn with UFC Fight Night 163.
The event is scheduled to take place on November 9 in Moscow at “CSKA Arena”. The Russian fight fans are in for a great main event of the night – two of the current top 10 in the heavyweight division will be squaring off.
The home crowd hero Aleksander Volkov (30-7) and Junior dos Santos (21-6) will go into the Octagon looking for a win. Both fighters are coming off of losses – the former heavyweight champion suffered a defeat by the hands of Francis Ngannou this summer, while “Drago” hasn’t fought since last October when Derick Lewis KO’d him in the final seconds of their bout.
As of this moment, here’s a look at the fights that are set to happen this night.
Junior dos Santos – Alexander Volkov, Heavyweight
Magomed Ankalaev – Dalcha Lungiambula, Light Heavyweight
Shamil Gamzatov – Klidson Abreu, Light Heavyweight
Gadzhimurad Antigulov – Ed Herman, Light Heavyweight
Roman Kopylov – Karl Roberson, Middleweight
Grigorii Popov – Davey Grant, bantamweight
