UFC Looking To Book Ciryl Gane vs. Alexander Volkov In June 26th Headliner

Ciryl Gane could get the biggest challenge of his career on June 26th, as UFC are looking to book him against Alexander Volkov in a main event bout. Per a report from Brett Okamoto of ESPN, the fight has been agreed upon by both parties but has not been finalized.

Should the fight be made official, it would join a UFC “Fight Night” card that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.

Gane is coming off winning his first-ever main event earlier this year, fighting five rounds against Jairzinho Rozenstruick for a unanimous decision victory. The win built on Gane’s undefeated career, which now has eight wins.

Volkov will also be returning after winning a main event fight early in the year. Volkov last appeared in February, where he stopped Alistair Overeem with strikes in the second round of what could’ve been a five round bout.

Prior to then, Volkov earned a stoppage win against Walt Harris at UFC 254.

If the main event becomes official, this is how UFC’s June 26th lineup would look:

Bout 5: Alexander Volkov (33-8) vs. Ciryl Gane (8-0) (Heavyweight)

Bout 4: Ovince St. Preux (25-15) vs. Maxim Grishin (31-9-2) (Light Heavyweight)

Bout 3: Anthony Hernandez (8-2) vs. Punahele Soriano (8-0) (Middleweight)

Bout 2: Tim Elliott (17-11-1) vs. Su Mudaerji (14-4) (Flyweight)

Bout 1: Michel Prazares (26-3) vs. Shavkat Rakhmonov (13-0) (Welterweight)
