UFC ST. PETERSBURG SHAPING UP WITH ALISTAIR OVEREEM VS. ALEXANDER VOLKOV

The Octagon heads to Yubileyny Sports Palace at St. Petersburg, Russia on April 20 for UFC Fight Night 149, along with the card is Now Beginning to shape up.

Though the UFC hasn’t formally announced the following bouts, many media sources have reported themand it is anticipated the UFC makes them official shortly. Here are my thoughts on the first three known fights for UFC St. Petersburg.
Alistair Overeem vs. Alexander Volkov, UFC Fight Night 149
The main event of UFC Fight Night 149 is scheduled for a five-round heavyweight bout between Alistair Overeem and Alexander Volkov. Denis Geyko broke the information. Overeem (44-17, 1 NC) is 9-6 overall in the UFC and is coming off of a TKO win over Sergey Pavlovich. Volkov (30-7) is 4-1 in the UFC and is coming off of a shocking last-second KO loss to Derrick Lewis. Prior to this he had been on a six-fight win series and was nearing name contention. Had Volkov lasted just 10 more minutes against Lewis he probably would have been fighting for a title by now. I am hoping people forget just how close Volkov was to winning this struggle, and perhaps he will be the dog here against Overeem since he’s coming from a knockout win. I simply don’t believe Overeem’s chin can be reliable against a long, skinny and powerful striker such as Volkov, and that I lean towards the Russian within this one.
Sergey Pavlovich vs. Marcelo Golm, UFC Fight Night 149
A fun heavyweight fight between Sergey Pavlovich and Marcelo Golm will also take place with this card. Via MMADNL, Igor Lazorin broke the news. Pavlovich (12-1) was undefeated as a pro with the majority of his wins coming by knockout before he was pumped out by Overeem in his UFC debut. This has been too much of a step up for Pavlovich and the UFC is finally offering him a more favorable matchup in his home nation. Golm (6-2) completed Christian Colombo in his Octagon debut but has since lost decisions to Arjan Bhullar and Tim Johnson. Golm just hasn’t been impressive in the UFC at all and although Pavlovich didn’t look good against Overeem he has several benefits in this fight. I expect the Russian for a fairly big favorite to receive his hands raised as a outcome.
Roxanne Modafferi vs. Antonina Shevchenko, UFC Fight Night 149
And finally, women’s flyweights Roxanne Modafferi and Antonina are put to battle at this event. MyMMANews.com broke the struggle . Modafferi (22-15) is 1-3 complete in the UFC and is coming off of a decision loss to Sijara Eubanks. She’s had a tiny career revival since moving down to flyweight, but is clearly at an athletic drawback in this matchup. Shevchenko (7-0) is the sister of UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko and she’s so far 1-0 in the Octagon with a decision win over Ji Yeon Kim. This is a really favorable matchup for Shevchenko over somebody who can’t match her at the striking and I expect her to win a very clear decision in this one. Start looking for her to be a big preferred to collect the win.
