Alexander Volkov +130 over Ciryl Gane

UFC VEGAS 30 - UFC Apex - Las Vegas, NV

6:15 PM EST. Ciryl Gane has been called the best striker in the UFC's heavyweight division and with that comes a lot of hype and high expectations. Gane's market appeal is further strengthened by a five fight win streak to start his run in the Octagon. However, feasting on JDS, Tanner Boser, Don'Tale Mayes and Raphael Pessoa does not make one a top contender in our eyes. Sure his win over Jairzinho Rozenstruik last time out is nice, but do not forget that fight went to the judges and we all know what can happen when those fools are in play. Also do not sleep on the fact that Gane was -300 in that tilt. Do you want to be laying 3-1 when Bruce Buffer says we're going to the judges?

Unlike Gane, Alexander Volkov is having his résumé and #5 ranking picked to shreds. Overeem is a shell of his former self; Walt Harris is too, and don't even get one started on the merits of Greg Hardy's MMA prowess. That's the kind of shit you are going to hear about “Drago” going into this fight tonight and that is why we always preach to be mindful of what the market at the talking heads are saying. If they can’t fathom it happening, there is probably a good chance it might. In this case, that would be a win for Volkov, who, by the way, is a very modest price, considering the one-sided hoopla for Gane. That seemingly short price on Gane will also further cement his role in the choice of this market. Many folks would walk through fire to spot 2-1 or better if they thought it was a "guaranteed" winner. What unspeakable acts would they commit to get a "sure thing" at a price like this? The reality is, Volkov is an MMA and UFC vet, who has tasted defeat and been through the wringer. He is battle-tested and very much worthy of this main event spot. Even if it was not created to be his breakout moment, it just might.
