    Predicted this fight would be in Russia after Oleynik's 224 win, terrible matchup for Oleynik, I hope Volkov main events because the Russians won't be happy after how easily Werdum dismantles Oleynik.

    I love Oleynik's chokes but I can't see how anyone can vote for him in this. Ezekiel Choking unsuspecting fighters with no grappling is different than doing it to one of the best bjj players in mma history.

    Oleynik has heavier hands than Werdum. That’s really his only advantage, though. Hope they don’t waste much time striking. Werdum should win on the ground too, but you never know—if he got caught, it would be less surprising than Rothwell subbing Barnett.

    Love it. Would Oliynyk only be a win away from a title shot if he wins? Lol
