Ranked heavyweights Alexander Volkov and Jairzinho Rozenstruick are scheduled to headline UFC’s June 4th “Fight Night” card, per a report from Brett Okamoto of ESPN.
The fight is joining a card that doesn’t have a confirmed location currently.
Both names will be fighting to bounce back after taking a recent loss.
Volkov competed in the main event of a card just last month in London, England. He was submitted within a round by rising prospect Tom Aspinall, who caught him with a straight armlock.
Before then, Volkov had a decision victory over Marcin Tybura at UFC 267.
Rozenstruick’s last fight was a unanimous decision loss against Curtis Blaydes in September 2021. He finished the year with one win and two losses in the year, with the two earlier appearances from the year both being main event opportunities.
