alexander-volkov

A heavyweight bout between former Bellator title holder Alexander Volkov and perennial contender Walt Harris took place at today’s UFC 254 event.

Volkov (31-8 MMA) had entered today’s contest looking to rebound after suffering a decision setback to Curtis Blaydes in his most recent Octagon appearance in June. That loss was preceded by a unanimous decision victory over former NFL star Greg Hardy in November of 2019.

Meanwhile, Walt Harris (13-8 MMA) had also entered UFC 254 looking to bounce back into the win column. ‘The Big Ticket’ was coming off a TKO loss to Alistair Overeem in his most recent effort this past May. Prior to the setback, Harris was riding a three-fight win streak, which included a thunderous knockout win over Aleksei Oleinik.

Today’s Volkov vs. Harris bout proved to be a one-sided affair. Alexander Volkov looked terrific in today’s contest, battering Walt Harris with numerous kicks and punches. In round two, the former Bellator champ would land a kick to the body of Harris that sent Walt crashing down to the canvas. From there, Volkov promptly closed the fight with ground and pound.
