A heavyweight bout between Greg Hardy and Alexander Volkov co-headlined today’s UFC Moscow event.
Hardy (5-1 MMA) was making a quick turnaround for today’s contest. The former Dallas Cowboy was last seen in action at last month’s UFC Boston event where he fought Ben Sosoli for fifteen minutes. That bout was originally ruled a decision victory for ‘The Prince of War’, but was later overturned to a no-contest due to Hardy’s use of an inhaler between rounds.
Meanwhile, Alexander Volkov (30-7 MMA) was returning to the Octagon for the first time since suffering a knockout loss to Derrick Lewis at UFC 229. That loss had snapped a six-fight winning streak for the Russian standout.
Tonight’s UFC Moscow co-headliner proved to be a very competitive fight. Alexander Volkov was able to get off the better volume of strikes on route to a decision win, but Greg Hardy performed admirably in defeat.
