Main Event In-The-Octagon Preview

This main event pairs seventh-ranked Volkov against eighth-ranked Rozenstruik. Both fighters are looking to move up the UFC heavyweight ladder with a potential path to a title fight.

We last saw Volkov (34-10-0) in March 2022 when he went up against Tom Aspinall in UFC Fight Night 204. Volkov lost by submission to Aspinall, suffering his 10th career loss. Now, Volkov returns with a vengeance to take down one of the best strikers in the division.

As for Rozenstruik, he is 12-3-0 in his career with 11 of those 12 wins coming by knockout, making it crystal clear that striking is his most dominant approach. “Bigi Boy” has taken down elite fighters such as Andrei Arlovski, Junior dos Santos, and Augusto Sakai by KO/TKO. As for his losses, Rozenstruik has only succumbed to two fights by decision and one knockout by the record holder for hardest punch in history, Francis Ngannou.

While Volkov is the favorite, the matchup is tightly priced, meaning oddsmakers believe it could go either way.

Co-Main Event: Dan Ige vs. Movsar Evloev

Featherweights take ownership of the co-main event position in a battle between Dan Ige and Movsar Evloev.

Ige is on a two-fight losing skid looking to turn things around. In his last appearance, “Dynamite” took on Josh Emmet at UFC 269 where he lost via unanimous decision.

Evloev is currently undefeated in MMA with a 15-0 record. He is a smart fighter with excellent grappling skills that could very well be the difference in this fight.

Evloev is the heavy favorite priced at -410, with Ige offered at +310 as the dog at DraftKings.

Karine Silva vs Poliana Botelho Odds UFC Odds

Poliana Botelho vs. Flyweight Newcomer Karine Silva

An all Brazilian bout will take place in the women’s flyweight division with Poliana Botelho taking on Karine Silva.

Botelho (8-4) is down to 1-2 since moving up to the 125-pound division in 2019 and aims to end a two-fight decision skid that came at the hands of Gillian Robertson and Luana Carolina.

Meanwhile, “Killer” Silva (14-4) looks to extend her winning streak following a victorious appearance at Dana White’s Contender Series, after submitting Qihui Yan in October.

This fight is tightly priced with Silva at -120 as the favorite, and Botelho offered at +100 as the dog at DraftKings.
