Alexander Volkov

UFC Press conference



March 5, 2019

Alexander “Drago” Volkov at the press conference devoted UFC FIGHT NIGHT St Petersburg Russia to April 20, answered questions from the press. Volkov is now ranked 5th in the heavy weight rating, and Alistair Overeem 6th. The last fight for Volkov was unsuccessful. He lost to Derrric Lewis at the end of the 3rd round of an almost won fight.
It is a great honor for me to lead the tournament in Russia. And with honor comes a great responsibility, so everything that depends on me, I will try to do. I have no escape route. I will go, I will fight.

When you started your way as a fighter, was Alistair Overeem an idol for you or was he just a fighter you were targeting?

I will tell you even more interesting fact. When Alistair Overee won his 1 pro fight, I spent my 1 amateur fight at 11 years old. That is, between us there really is a gap in the generations of speeches, in the generations of fighters. I will naturally worry. I will very much wait for this fight. Alistair Overeem was one of my favorite fighters. I have been following him for a long time as an MMA fighter, as a K-1 fighter who became a champion. For menga this fight will be a kind of test. What I have achieved during this time.

What are you going to do if Alistair Overeem starts to deal with you, post some funny photos about you and so on?

I do not know what I will do. But I’m definitely not going to jump over the octagon after the fight and beat its seconds. And so if it stirs interest, then let it be.

Fight with Overeem. How much does he promote you in the UFC rankings, does he approach the title fight?

Overeem is probably now one of the most titled fighters in the world, a veteran, a big name with him. Victory over him will help me close my previous unsuccessful performance. Of course, I do not count on the title chance immediately if it happens. But one victory after that I will be enough for me to fight for the belt. It will also depend on how the fight goes. But in this respect, Overeem fits very well. He is a drummer, textured, shows spectacular fights. From this point of view, this will be a very useful fight for me. In Russia, Overeem is very popular. Accordingly, the fight will attract a lot of attention. The UFC made the right choice by putting this opponent against me.

Weigh-In UFC 229


By: Ken Hathaway
Las Vegas – For the second fight in a row Derrick Lewis got physical with his opponent at weigh-ins. Alexander Volkov wouldn’t be intimidated though, and it almost turned in a full-fledged brawl.
After stepping on the scale at UFC 229 ceremonial weigh-ins, Lewis (20-5 MMA, 11-3 UFC) got in Volkov’s (30-6 MMA, 4-0 UFC) face and knocked his traditional Russian headwear to the floor. Shoving followed, then Volkov threw a kick that fell just short of “The Black Beast.”
UFC President Dana White and on-stage security were able to separate the monstrous heavyweights before things escalated too far out of control, but now the tension going into the matchup has increased significantly.

Alexander Volkov at UFC Fight Night London

KO victory over Fabricio Werdum

Fight Night London: Alexander Volkov - 'This Is The Biggest Win of My Career'


People who call me underdog have never seen me training

Alexander Volkov ahead of Fabricio Werdum UFC London fight

Alexander Volkov explains to The Mac Life that he isn’t in London this weekend to just make up the numbers.

Russian heavyweight Alexander Volkov says that the constant role of being seen as underdog has never bothered him in his career, writes Denis Geyko.

Volkov, who is set to face Brazilian veteran Fabricio Werdum in the main event of UFC Fight Night 127 in London this weekend, spoke exclusively to The Mac Life ahead of the bout. Speaking over the phone, the 29-year-old Moscow native, who landed in the England’s capital on Wednesday, told us about his preparation for the fight, being underdog and mutual respect with Werdum.

The Mac Life: We know that during your preparation for your last fight with Stefan Struve you had a four-time K-1 World Champion, Semmy Schilt, who stands 6’11, as your sparring partner. Did you have any special sparring partner for the fight with Werdum?

Alexander Volkov: Not really. I was training with the guys from my own team (TEAM STRELA). The thing is, many of the guys in our team specialize in Jiu-Jitsu, so I’ve spent a lot of time with them working on this aspect.

TML: Werdum is obviously one of the fighters, who many MMA fans and fighters looked up to growing up. Were you also watching his fights when making your first steps in MMA? And how does it feel to fight someone like that?

AV: Recently I’ve been training with many notable fighters, and I kind of got used to training and fighting with the guys who I looked up to growing up. But of course it would be nice to add him to the list of my victories. Obviously, I have nothing but respect for Fabricio. A whole generation of the fans and fighters grew up watching his fights. And it’s hard to underestimate the role he has played in this sport.

TML: Before your last fights you were making some sort of friendly provocations and callouts for your opponents on social media. And you were obviously pretty creative about it. But we haven’t seen any of those before the Werdum fight. Is it because of the respect you have for him?

AV: I think we both have a great respect for each other, plus we have previously trained together. There is no single reason for a conflict between us. I just want to go there, do my thing, get it done. And hopefully we will stay friends after the fight.

TML: Much like in your previous UFC fights you are considered an underdog in this bout. Does it ever bother you what people say about your chances before fights?

AV: It doesn’t matter to me. Plus, those people who try to estimate the chances of the fighters before the bout, they miss one big thing – they weren’t in their training camps. They have never seen me training, they have never seen the other guys training. They are taking into consideration previous fights, and it’s a wrong thing to consider. Because people don’t know how well fighters were prepared for their previous bouts. Maybe one of the fighters wasn’t feeling well or something happened in his personal life. Being underdog doesn’t mean anything to me really. If I’d think about that I’d probably pull out from my previous fights, right? But that is ridiculous. I do believe in my abilities, and there is no other way in this game. Otherwise I see no reason to step in the cage.

ACB 77

Abdul-Aziz Abdulvakhabov (15-1) def. (SD) Eduard Vartanyan (18-4)
In the main event of the evening, Abdulvakhabov and Vartanyan rematched for the Lightweight title. In their first fight Abdulvakhabov won decisively via a first round T/KO, however, this fight played out differently. The majority of the first round was spent against the cage with Abdulvakhabov grinding Vartanyan. However, in the second round Vartanyan began effectively countering Abdulvakhabov who kept coming forward but was too focused on finding the knockout. The third and fourth rounds were spent in a similar fashion with Vartanyan playing the matador and Abdulvakhabov looking increasingly out of ideas. In the fifth round, Abdulvakhabov had more success but was still unable to find the knockout punch whilst Vartanyan kept working on the backfoot and landing the cleaner strikes. Despite, the commentators believing that Vartanyan has done enough for the decision Abdulvakhabov was awarded the split decision victory. After the fight, ACB president Mairbek Khasiev said that he wants to see a rematch in Vartanyan’s homeland, Armenia.

Helena Kolesnyk at Invicta FC 24

Helena Kolesnyk vs. Pam Sorenson

Helena Kolesnyk won’t be fighting for a title – or against a champion from another division – but she will get to remain on the Invicta FC 24 card.

The all-female promotion announced Friday that Kolesnyk will meet Pam Sorenson in a 145-pound contest at the July 15 event. Additionally, a strawweight clash between Miranda Maverick and Gabby Romero was added to the card. Invicta FC takes place at the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo., and is headlined by a flyweight tilt between Milana Dudieva and Mara Romero Borella. The eight-bout card will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Kolesnyk was initially slated to challenge Megan Anderson for the featherweight crown in the Invicta FC 24 main event, but Anderson was signed by the UFC to face Cristiane Justino for the Las Vegas-based promotion’s vacant 145-pound strap. Kolesnyk was then booked against reigning bantamweight queen Tonya Evinger in the new headliner. However, after Anderson was removed from the UFC 214 bill, Evinger was tabbed to face “Cyborg,” once again leaving Kolesyk without an opponent.

A 27-year-old native of the Ukraine, Kolesnyk is unbeaten in six professional appearances, with all of her victories coming inside the distance. Sorenson, meanwhile, is 5-2 overall and is coming off a split-decision loss to Ediane Gomes at Invicta FC 23.

Struve carries a two-fight winning streak into the contest after downing Daniel Omielanczuk this past October in England, as well as scoring a 16-second knockout win over Antonio Silva at UFC Fight Night 87 in May 2016, at the UFC’s debut event in the Netherlands.

Meanwhile, former Bellator heavyweight champ Volkov brings a four-fight winning streak to the matchup – a run that includes UFC victories over Roy Nelson and Timothy Johnson, as well as M-1 Challenge victories over Attila Vegh and Denis Smoldarev.

UFC Kansas City Results: Roy Nelson Loses Decision to Alexander Volkov

By: Jay Anderson


Roy Nelson returned to action Saturday at UFC Kansas City, but didn’t find the result he was looking for, dropping a decision to Alexander Volkov.

UFC Kansas City went down Saturday night from Missouri and in the featured fight of the preliminary card, Roy Nelson returned to action following a suspension for push kicking ref “Big” John McCarthy. Opposite him was Alexander Volkov, a former Bellator heavyweight champ.

After utilizing his rarely seen ground game in the first round, a standup late in the frame forced Big Country to stand with the much taller Volkov, but more than likely, Nelson stole the first round through positional dominance. In the second, however, Volkov utilized knees to the belly and stayed on his feet, evening the score.

Running into the third, cardio was the story of the fight, as Volkov used his height and reach advantage to keep Nelson at bay. Nelson stalked his opponent, constantly moving forward, but was kept on the outside, unable to do any damage.

Not unlike many a Big Country bout, the action still went the distance, and at the end of three rounds, the fight went to the judges’ scorecards. All three judges scored the fight in favor of Volkov, awarding the Russian fighter a 30-27 on every single card. With the win, Volkov improved to 2-0 in the UFC, and 28-6 overall.

Nelson, meanwhile, dropped to 22–14. Following the bout, Volkov thanked the crowd for supporting Nelson, noting that through the entire bout, the American was moving forward. He then added that while he was looking forward to a bit of rest, he was “here for the belt.”

At 40, it appears Roy Nelson will move into a gatekeeper role in the UFC, while the 28-year-old Alexander Volkov will look towards the top ten of the division.

For UFC on FOX 24's Alexander Volkov, UFC debut was about getting a win over himself

By: Matt Erickson and Christian Stein

Former Bellator heavyweight champion Alexander Volkov came to the UFC this past fall and got the hard part out of the way: He won his promotional debut.


At UFC Fight Night 99 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Volkov took a split decision from Timothy Johnson in a tough fight. But the bout was made harder, he said, because of a mistake he made in the fight that caused him to not only need to beat Johnson, but another opponent after being backed into a corner: himself.

“The first fight in the UFC was very emotional for me – I had a lot of things going through my mind,” Volkov told MMAjunkie. “For me, it was a fight against myself. In the first round, I hurt him and I went for the kill, and I did a lot of things I’ve never done before. I forgot about my defense and I got caught. I was in the worst scenario, personally, for me – I was knocked down and there was a good wrestler on me.

“I managed to stand up and finish the fight (and win the decision). It was the fact I managed to become a winner over myself.”

Today, Volkov (27-6 MMA, 1-0 UFC) has arguably an even bigger task at hand than the one he had against Johnson in November, and that’s his UFC on FOX 24 opponent, Roy Nelson (22-13 MMA, 9-9 UFC).

UFC on FOX 24 takes place today at Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo. The main card airs on FOX following prelims on FOX and UFC Fight Pass. Volkov’s fight with Nelson is the featured prelim on FOX.

If Friday’s weigh-ins were any indication, Volkov may also be fighting the crowd noise when he heads to the cage. There is perhaps no bigger everyman veteran fan favorite in the heavyweight division than Nelson. Volkov? He’s a 6-foot-7 Russian fighting in the heart of middle America against an American. The current political climate certainly may mean the Kansas City fans could turn things into U.S. vs. Russia in an instant.

But that won’t bother Volkov, he said – and he hopes things are cordial with he and Nelson, especially since he also admits to liking him having watched his fights through the years.

“I used to fight in the U.S. (in Bellator), and I would feel how the fans loved my opponent, not me,” Volkov said. “Usually, it’s helped me because when the crowd is cheering for you, it can help – but it can also create pressure. This fight will be very interesting because he’s a typical American, and I’m a typical Russian. It’ll be a great fight, but I hope it stays only a rivalry in the cage.”

As for how the fight will play out, Volkov, who has won three straight after leaving Bellator, believes he has more ways to beat Nelson than Nelson has to beat him. Nelson has won two of his past three, but the lone loss was a split-decision setback to Derrick Lewis that he believes he won.

Volkov’s height may play a factor, but Nelson fought a much taller opponent in his most recent bout, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, and knocked him out. Still, Volkov believes the fight is his for the taking – and the oddsmakers have made him a slight favorite at -150 against the 40-year-old “Big Country.”

“I’m training every day and I see I’m devloping,” Volkov said. “I’m trying to develop as a fighter. I had a big winning streak in my previous days, and I hope to have a big streak again. I hope 2017 will be a year of many victories.

“We’re going to have a beautiful fight, and if the situation allows, I’ll finish him for sure. I also love that for Roy, there’s only one outcome to defeat me, and that’s knock me out. I have different options to fight him: I can submit him, I can knock him out, or I can win all three rounds and win by decision if need be. I have many more tools than he has. So in this one, I’m much more relaxed.”

Top-ranked Bellator featherweight Iony Razafiarison battles undefeated Helena Kolesnyk on May 20th


Bellator featherweight Iony Razafiarison returns to action on May 20th, she has been given permission by the organization to compete at Superior FC 17 against undefeated prospect Helena Kolesnyk. The pair will meet at a catchweight of 140-pounds.

Razafiarison (2-1-0, 1 NC) is coming off the biggest victory of her professional career, after taking out Sinead Kavanagh back in February at Bellator 173. The victory over the highly touted and formerly undefeated prospect put her at number thirteen in the featherweight world rankings. The 32-year-old who resides out of Paris, France and trains out of Quoniam Gym is hoping to display another impressive performance in May, and make a statement by taking out another undefeated contender.

Kolesnyk (4-0-0, 1 NC) has looked phenomenal in her professional mixed martial arts career so far. The 27-year-old who was born in Ukraine and now fighting out of Russia has finished three of her victories inside the first round by way of strikes, as well as a round two submission victory by way of a standing neck crank. It should be noted however that three of her career victories come to women who have not yet had a win, whilst the fourth comes to a woman who is 1-6-0 as a pro. Kolesnyk believes she has what it takes to become the face of the featherweight division, and she will definitely be looking to prove it on May 20th against a top-ranked Bellator star. A victory for Kolesnyk would no doubt send her into the top fifteen, as well as putting herself on Bellator MMA’s radar.

Iony Razafiarison takes on Helena Kolesnyk on May 20th at Superior FC 17. The event takes place from the Arena Kreis Düren in Düren, Germany. Broadcast details will be revealed nearer the date.

Great training at Black House before UFC Fight Night on April 15, 2017.


#Alexander Volkov #Taras Kiyashko


Congrats to our fighter Vladimir Kanunnikov, the winner of Grand Prix Final of ProFC 2017!



‘I grew up watching his fights’ – Alexander Volkov on fighting Roy Nelson in April. Russia Today Sport.

After it was revealed that UFC veteran Roy ‘Big Country’ Nelson will face Russian newcomer Alexander Volkov in Kansas City on April 15, RT Sport spoke to the latter about his thoughts and plans for the upcoming fight.

Despite being a newcomer to the UFC – with just one victory over Timothy Johnson last November – the 6ft 7in Russian, who began his career in mixed martial arts eight years ago, has racked up 33 (27-6) professional fights, including seven bouts and a championship belt in Bellator.

He lost the belt to a fellow Russian, the undefeated Vitaly Minakov (19-0), in November 2013, suffering the only knockout of his career in the process.

Now, 28-year-old Volkov – nicknamed 'Drago' after his resemblance to the Rocky character – says he is ready to test himself against the best fighters in the UFC heavyweight division.

RT: You are fighting Roy Nelson in April, what do you expect from that fight?

Alexander Volkov: He’s a good, experienced opponent. I’d say it’s the biggest challenge of my career so far. He’s a veteran with a big name and one of the fighters I looked up to growing up, he’s a solid opponent. However, I feel that I’m ready to face serious opponents and win, that’s why I’m preparing to the best of my ability. Nelson has a fan base in Russia, a lot of my friends follow him and I always liked him too. MMA fans like him and it’s because of him that our fight will attract attention, but if the fans want to root for me, I certainly wouldn’t mind (laughs).

RT: When did find out you would fight him?

Alexander Volkov: I actually signed the contract a couple of months ago, so I already knew the name of my opponent and have been preparing for him since then. It wasn’t really a surprise for me when it was announced officially.

Публикация от Alexander Volkov (@volkov_alex)

How is training going for the bout?

Alexander Volkov: The first part of my camp took place in Thailand. Now I’m training here in Moscow. The next and final stage will be acclimatizing in America.

What do you see as your key to victory in that fight?

Alexander Volkov: One of my keys could be my height and I’ll use it to my advantage when striking. Striking is my style after all, and I’ll look for a stand-up fight. But I’ll be ready for everything, as I always am.

How would you rate your chances in the UFC heavyweight division?

Alexander Volkov: There are some really good fighters in there, they’re all at the top of the rankings, while there’s also some new blood looking to make some noise. I’d single out Francis Ngannou and Derrick Lewis. But they’ve had more fights than me, this will be only my second fight in the UFC. They are rivaling the top fighters, I think I’ll do that too (laughs).

Just before the Arlovski-Ngannou fight, you said you might fight the winner next – why did that not materialize?

Alexander Volkov: There were talks with the UFC about a possible fight with the winner of Arlovski-Ngannou but after the fight, Ngannou decided to take a break and now he has different ambitions. He wants to fight for the title. So with me being ranked 11 it’s hard to talk about that fight. But I think we’ll fight later anyway. We are both strikers and despite being newcomers we’re going up in the rankings. In a year or two we’ll meet.

Tell us a little bit about your fighting background

Alexander Volkov: I started my career in karate. Then I tried MMA, I liked it and went pro. But yes, I have a karate style.

When did people start calling you Drago?

Alexander Volkov: I got that nickname when I went to United States for the first time. I had to pick one so the American audience would remember by that name. I was offered a couple of options. I can’t say that I was enthusiastic about picking one, but Drago seemed right, so I kept it.

What the hell did I watch Saturday?

I’m honestly not sure if, even by Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight standards, Derrick Lewis is actually good. He has skills, and he may just be incredibly worn out from his schedule in the last two years, but I just watched him beat someone in Travis Browne who is, in many ways, the better fighter, and I’m not even sure how he did it.

Browne looked the best he has in years, quickly hurting Lewis with body kicks before...not really doing anything? He was right not to rush in against Lewis, but he just kind of...stopped fighting with any kind of plan, which was always the story with him. Even with Lewis constantly clutching his abdomen in a fashion that resembled a child who ate too much ice cream more than a hurt prize fighter, Browne didn’t look to finish with kicks the way he did against Alistair Overeem.

Wait, that guy who lost to Lewis beat Overeem and Josh Barnett? And now this happened, a year after he basically cheated to beat Matt Mitrione, when he started to lose the fight? And Lewis is now ranked ahead of an expert striker like Mark Hunt because he actually has the higher-ranked signature win? What the hell is going on?

Heavyweight is, confusingly, simultaneously the best and worst that it’s been in a long time. In the positive column, there’s a decent amount of parity, to the point that Junior dos Santos getting a title shot with no win streak hasn’t elicited the kind of complaints that his and Cain Velasquez’s previous title shots under similar circumstances did. Plus, that his shot at Stipe Miocic is a rematch of possibly the best headliner in the entire run of “UFC on Fox” cards certainly helps. The champion, Miocic, is incredibly likable and marketable, plus he has spectacular fights, and might have the stylistic attributes to be the first UFC heavyweight champion with three consecutive successful title defenses. Ben Rothwell, while often sidelined by injuries, has put things together to the point that he’s in the mix at the top of the division, and he’s coming off the most impressive submission in all of MMA in 2016. Plus, finally, there’s actually some light at the end of the tunnel in the rapidly-aging division, as Lewis, Francis Ngannou, and former Bellator MMA champion Alexander Volkov all have legitimate spots in the rankings.

On the other hand, this is a division where Aleksei Oleinik and Timothy Johnson, who are both very much career journeymen, are ranked, and they absolutely deserve it. Nothing against them: they’re skilled fighters, often fun to watch, and seem like swell guys to hang out with. But they’re also the types of fighters who would not be ranked in just about any other division. Oleinik just won a fight by submission while he was mounted, for crying out loud.

Even if you set aside the depth issues, there’s a more immediate problem: The UFC brass, both former and current, clearly has no idea how to leverage the most marketable fighters in the division. This is a problem in every division, but it’s especially pronounced at heavyweight.

Let’s look at the champion, Miocic. He has exciting fights, with his last tepid performance being against Gabriel Gonzaga over three years ago. When Miocic is not in camp for a fight, he’s still working as a firefighter as often as possible even though he no longer needs to. On Twitter, he’s a quick-witted, underrated follow, although not nearly as funny as Lewis. And when he won the title, it was a gigantic event in his hometown of Cleveland.

The UFC didn’t drum up any additional publicity for Miocic’s victory celebration in Cleveland. There’s been no effort to promote his personality, or, outside of token shots on “Countdown” shows, the fact that he goes out of his way to save people’s lives even though he’s a full time fighter now. And in spite of being in at least two of the best heavyweight fights in UFC history with Dos Santos and Overeem, those fights haven’t been pushed as such, which is puzzling when the former came a year after the incumbent “best heavyweight fight” was tarnished by a doping test failure. If you were going to use the mythical lab to build a marketable heavyweight, he’d look something like Miocic.

That said, this is heavyweight. Maybe they’re just worried that if they invest too much time in Miocic, he’ll get knocked out before long by that guy who won the other night. You know, the one who used the post-fight interview to talk about Ronda Rousey, domestic violence allegations against his opponent and his need to poop.
