London gets its main event. Not quite the one a lot of people were looking for, but it is an intriguing match-up. Let's see if Volkov has a real future in the Top 5.

I'd like to see it too because **** Werdum and heavyweight could use another contender. Highly doubt it though.

My first instinct when I saw this match up was Volkov by early KO. Then I remember how good Werdum is. Just not sure how much of a shot he can take these days, and if he can take Volkov down.

Volkov gets taken down by everyone who tries to take him down, from what I've seen.

Well, Volkov gets taken down by everyone, in my opinion. I think he likes online casino free bonus much.

Not an easy match to pick. I could see Werdum running into a NO again or subbing Volkov.
