Cyril Gane Form


Cyril Gane has compiled a perfect 8-0 professional MMA record since crossing over from Muay Thai, where he was a world champion.

Gane reeled off three stoppage wins on the regional scene to capture the UFC’s attention.

He then made an immediate splash by showcasing his submission skills with a first-round arm-triangle choke on Raphael Pessoa and third-round heel hook on Don’Tale Mayes.

Gane was taken the distance for the first time by Tanner Boser in December 2019 but got the nod from the judges.

He then knocked out former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos in December 2020 before besting the dangerous Jairzinho Rozenstruik over five rounds in February.

Gane’s record stands at 8-0 with three victories coming via KO/TKO and three via submission.

Alexander Volkov Form


Alexander Volkov has been in the Octagon with a host of big names since arriving in the UFC in late 2016.

Volkov established himself in the heavyweight ranks quickly by besting some experienced campaigns in Roy Nelson and Stefan Struve.

He then knocked out former champion Fabricio Werdum, only for his rise to be halted by a third-round KO at the fists of Derrick Lewis.

Volkov underwhelmed in a decision win over inexperienced former NFL star Greg Hardy in his next outing, but suffered his second UFC loss before he could build up some steam.

The Russian was bested over five rounds by Curtis Blaydes, but since that night he has stopped Walt Harris and Alistair Overeem to get back on track.

Volkov has a 33-8 record, with 22 victories coming via KO/TKO and three of the coming by submission.
