MOSCOW, 16 Mar – Ukrainian MMA fighter Nikita Krylov, in a conversation with a correspondent, said that the Russian heavyweight Alexander Volkov will have a difficult fight at the London tournament of the Absolute Fighting Championship (UFC), which will not be a cakewalk for a domestic athlete.
On Saturday, Krylov will perform at the UFC Fight Night 204 tournament in London, his opponent will be the Scot Paul Craig. In the main event of the evening, Volkov will share the octagon with Englishman Tom Aspinall.
“Sasha had good preparation, he will pick up the keys to Aspinell. But the Briton will definitely form the opposition: a rather versatile fighter, he fights at home. Volkov should approach this opponent with an adequate assessment. I am biased, I support Sasha. But I do not foresee an easy walk for him , there is a good test ahead. Although Volkov has nothing to prove. It will just be a competitive fight,” Krylov said.
