Alistair Overeem v Alexander Volkov Predictions & Tips
£20 bet returns £64 with Bet365
If you are looking for an experienced fighter, than Overeem is your man. This will be the 67th fight of his professional mixed martial arts career. Disappointingly though, he has never become a UFC champion, despite securing titles all around the world. But, for the London-born Dutchman, the UFC golf is a dream that is yet to become a reality. When he tried, he was defeated in one round by Stipe Miocic around four years ago, since then he had a 2-2 record in the next four fights.
Top Betting Offers To Take Advantage Of In Alistair Overeem v Alexander Volkov
Who will win Alistair Overeem v Alexander Volkov fight?
The 40 years old might not be at the peak of his career, yet he has gone 4-1 in his last five fights, with the only defeat that came at the end of a controversial decision against Jairzinho Rozenstruik. Since then, Overeem has bounced back with wins against Walt Harris and Augusto Sakai and will be looking for his third win in a row this weekend.
Alexander Volkov will try to negate his this joy. The 32-year-old Russian has made a very good start in the UFC but in recent times, his form has been inconsistent.
The Russian tasted his first UFC defeat against Derrick Lewis in October 2018 and even if he has won his next fight was defeated again by Curtis Blaydes in June 2020. In October he managed to bounce back, once again, with a win over Walt Harris and if he can follow up against Overeem, he has a chance to fight for the title in 2021.
We don’t think this will happen. Surely Volkov is a man with lots of finishing power, but the veteran fighter is very patient and tactical nowadays and should stay out of danger. Overeem has learned over the years to improve his style, and we believe he is far too skilled for the inconsistent Russian who might be cracked by a big shot. We believe Overeem should get the job done before the end and backing him to win by KO or TKO.
