Two big bad guys will share the octagon at UFC 267's main card. "Drago," Alexander Volkov will fight Polish prospect Marcin Tybura in a heavyweight bout.
Alexander Volkov is a phenomenal fighter with excellent striking skills. He has 33 victories, and 22 of them are via KO. His last performance was against Ciryl Gane, and he suffered a loss against the French interim heavyweight champion, but let's be honest, who will stop Gane? Only Ngannou or Miocic can stop him, so let's forget about his last loss. He defeated Alistar Overeem and Walt Harris, two excellent strikers in a row, both the second round via TKO. A few years ago, he also victoried against names like Fabricio Werdum, Stefan Struve, Roy Nelson, Timothy Johnson. He is very experienced, and his reach advantage in striking is beneficial for him.Bet on Alexander Volkov vs. Marcin Tybura with 1xBet
Marcin Tybura is an excellent prospect, but is he at the same level as Volkov? For sure, in the heavyweight bout, any punch can decide the fight's result, but still. The Polish fighter is on 5 winning streaks in the UFC. He defeated Sergey Spivak, Maxim Grishin, Ben Rothwell, Greg Hardy, and Walt Harris in a row. But let's be honest. Unfortunately, Walt Harris was on his downward career and mentally broken because of his childhood accident when Marcin defeated him. Defeated Greg Hardy is not a special thing according to his last appearances; Ben Rothwell is already aged, and so on.
I think Volkov is on another level compared to Marcin Tybura. Also, Tybura already lost 4 times via KO, which affects his chin conditions a lot. I think the unique skills and reach advantage will be fatal for Polish.
Volkov is opening this bout as the favorite, and I totally agree with the bookmakers; his winning has the odd around 1.3.
