UFC Vegas 56: Volkov vs Rozenstruik fight card is announced. It has been more than a week since fight fans have been able to catch some MMA action and the UFC looks to deliver this Saturday, June 4, live from the APEX arena in Las Vegas, NV.
The main card headlines with top ten Heavyweights Alexander Volkov vs Jairzinho Rozenstruik. Both fighters are coming off a recent loss. Volkov lost by round 1 submission to Aspinall just last March, and Rozenstruik lost a decision to Curtis Blaydes in September of last year. Both fighters should be motivated to get back into the win column and continue their advancement in the hopes of facing the championship, currently being held by Francis Ngannou.
The UFC also appears to be shaking up the Featherweight division, as the co-main event of the night will be Dan Ige vs Mosvar Enloev. Dan Ige is coming off of 2 losses in a row, and hopes that he can maintain his top ten status. Enloev is seeing his stock go the opposite direction as he looks to make this six in a row, and secure his place in the top ten, currently dominated by Alexander Volkanovski.
