Lewis vs. Volkov
Alexander Volkov, TKO, R2
Lewis might come out aggressive here, which could be a mistake against Drago.

All the hype on habib vs conor almost guaranties fight of the year.
Think habib beats him up for five rounds. Must say i hate the way habib ducks his head down 
and throws wild looping hooks. Conor got the boxing skills and hes slick enough to contdr punch ko habib.
Or catch him with a stop hit left straighg as hes coming in. Gonna b off the board for sure.
Whatever happens.

If Reyes wins this we have new blood in the mix at the top again. Would be good news for LHW.

Krylov’s also back, so just with him and Reyes in the division, it’s already more exciting than it has been in the past like five years lmao.

They're not the best lightweights.  When Khabib and Nate fight, the best lightweights will be fighting. : )

That's gotta be an obvious troll.

Then again, Fight Matrix had Nate as a top 7 WW after the first Conor fight if I'm not mistaken.

Not totally sold on O'Malley yet, but they're bringing him along slow.
