FIGHT PASS MAIN CARDStefan Struve vs Alexander Volkov Siyar Bahadurzada vs Rob Wilkinson Marion Reneau vs Talita Bernardo Leon Edwards vs Bryan Barberena FIGHT PASS PRELIMSDarren Till vs Bojan Velickovic Mairbek Taisumov vs Felipe Silva Michel Prazeres vs Mads Burnell Rustam Khabilov vs Desmond Green Francimar Barroso vs Aleksandar Rakic Zabit Magomedsharipov vs Mike Santiago Bojan Mihajlovic vs Abdul-Kerim Edilov Andrew Holbrook vs Thibault Gouti Nothing special but some decent stuff there and at least it'll be on at a convenient time for us being in Europe. Struve vs Volkov then. Fuck me this is going to look like two giraffes having a scuffle. Struve is 7'0", Volkov is listed at 6'7". Can see this being a lot of fun actually. Struve doesn't really do boring fights and Volkov is a good striker so it should be a crowd pleaser. I've always liked Struve but I can't help thinking all the wars and knockouts early in his UFC career have caught up to him. He's only 28 but he's taken a shitload of punishment already. Got a feeling he's in for some more here but I'd like to see him pull out a win at home. De Randamie vs Reneau should be decent enough. When you look at this though, I just shake my head. In her last fight in February, De Randamie became the first ever UFC women's featherweight champion. She then vacated the belt to avoid fighting Cyborg. That's the truth of it. She announced she was moving back down to bantamweight. Now here she is, co-maining on Fight Pass. She gave up a world title for this. I know she was most likely getting smashed by Cyborg but it's still a weird situation. Oh well. She's fighting Marion Reneau now. Reneau isn't a world beater, and she's 40. I expect De Randamie to win. But you never know, I guess. Reneau does have a good submission game. She subbed Jessica Andrade once upon a time. And De Randamie is no grappler. I'm looking forward to Khabilov vs Green just because I like Khabilov. He's 21-3 and a really good fighter with wins over Jorge Masvidal and Yancy Medeiros on his record. He's won his last four but he's been inactive so far this year. Desmond Green is 20-5 and beat Josh Emmett in his UFC debut in April. Edwards vs Barberena is this card's ***WAND'S ONE TO WATCH***. I've become a bit of a fan of Leon Edwards. And not just because he's a fellow Brummie. I think he's a good fighter who's actually a little bit underrated IMO. His submission over Albert Tumenov was a bit of an eye opener and he's also got a KO over Seth Baczynski. He's coming into this one off 3 wins on the bounce. Barberena is best known for ending Sage Northcutt's run as an undefeated prospect. He's a solid fighter with submission skills and he's tough. I could easily see these two stealing the show. Elsewhere on the card... • Saparbek Safarov. He's the nutter who came in on short notice earlier this year and had a wild as fuck brawl against Gian Villante. He got battered but he was fucking granite tough. Just insane and never stopped bulling forward. I've mentioned that fight a few times on here and if you haven't seen it, get that sorted. Not one for the purists but well worth a look. • Nick Hein. You might want to avoid this fight. Hein has been in the UFC for what feels like an age and I couldn't tell you one fight of his I enjoyed. Seems a nice chap but he's dull as dishwater to watch. Every fight looks the same, they all go the distance and you never remember them once they're over. • Siyar Bahadurzada is back. He came into the UFC with a lot of hype a few years ago. He knocked Paulo Thiago (remember him?) out cold in seconds in his debut and everyone believed the hype that this guy was a killer. Then it all fizzled out. Injuries and losses piled up and to be totally honest, I forgot he was even still under contract until I started this post. That's your lot.
