Ryan Spann admits he's unsure of Nikita Krylov's style ahead of UFC Vegas 70 headliner: "He's just the name that came up"

Josh Evanoff - February 24, 2023

UFC light-heavyweight contender Ryan Spann doesn’t really know much about Nikita Krylov. However, he doesn’t really care. ‘Superman’ has been out of the octagon since his clash with Dominick Reyes at UFC 281. In the light-heavyweight showcase last November, Spann picked up the biggest win of his career thus far. Less than two minutes into the first round, he scored a devastating knockout victory over ‘The Devastator’.

Cole Shelton - February 23, 2023

Ryan Spann is set to headline UFC Vegas 70 against Nikita Krylov on Saturday but that was not always the plan. According to Spann, after he knocked out Dominick Reyes at UFC 281 in November, he was offered to fight Jan Blachowicz. However, when Jiri Prochazka got hurt and vacated the belt, the UFC was forced to make some big changes to the division, which included Blachowicz vs. Ankalaev for the vacant belt.
