I was surprised to read about this today.  Wasn't expecting Volkov to go from M-1 champ to UFC contender so quickly.  M-1 needs to work harder to hold on to their champions.  That has been one thing that has hindered them for a while.  At one time they had the second best HW division in the world.  Volkov was the last remaining M-1 HW in our G-MMA rankings and now he went to UFC.  They still have some really good HWs though.

This is a good signing for UFC.  Will be interesting to see how Volkov does there.

Volkov I've always loved but the way to beat him is to out wrestle him and get him in the clinch.Its just funny to me that he couldn't hang in bellator.......had a bit of a resurgence in m-1,then heads to the ufc.

Can't blame Volkov as he's been Bellator Champion, two time tournament winner, and M-1 Global Champion. UFC seems like the next option. Unfortunately, it won't go well. Volkov has huge holes in his ground game and I don't know if he's improved it. I wish him well but I think it won't be good.

^Yeah, Volkov is definitely not to blame. He did very well in Bellator. I was just kidding with my post above. He is far from a Bellator cast off.

I find it pretty disrespectful they don't even mention he was M-1 HW Champ......

He left M-1 with the belt after defending it once......he never even defended the Bellator belt he lost it to Minakov way back in 2013 back in bjorn era belly.

I've always liked volkov hes got great skill just never able to beat dominant wrestlers and or grapplers i don't see him fairing well in ufc.

If he couldn't hang in bellator i don't see how he makes it in ufc.His opponent can outwrestle him its timothy johnson.

Best wins in bellator were Brett Rogers,Vinicius queiroz,Richard Hale(for vacant belt and tourney),& Blagoi Ivanov.

He got destroyed by minakov and beaten by kongo and tony johnson.

That is a bit. Yeah, Blagoi was his biggest win which is a really big win. The wrestlers could be his downfall. We'll see.

I don't know what to think of Volkoff but if he think UFC is honour,respect a "sport" he's in for a rude awakening.

He sure is. Wait until he loses just one fight and the asshole UFC fans will say he was overrated and overhyped. If you done well outside the UFC, then you can't slip on one banana peel or they'll trash you.

That's right. It's crazy how fickle they are and even if you get beat there, you are a can, you're overrated. It drives me nuts trying to reason with people who live vicariously through Dana White lol

They should have matched him up vs Stefan Struve and not a wrestler

I would have rather seen that as well. Wrestler might take him out in first fight. Struve would have been more interesting.
