    Sherdogs are praising uber volkov way too much

    Gane will make it look easy

    Very important fight. Essentially a #1 contender fight if Bones chickens out

    Both of them are awesome matchups for Ngannou, two very technical strikers would be interesting to see their gameplans against the champ.
    They also are around the same size as Ngannou as well, which will make things fun.

    This fight itself is really fun, I like both fighters though so idk who wants to win more.

    I also like both fighters. I think either one has a decent chance at winning the belt although I give advantage to Gane. He seems quicker.

    There is no other HW.
    This is for no1 contendership
    The only thing that will pull bones out of retirement is BB beating Ngannou but I don't see that happening

    Yes! Next few years will potentially be great for HW fans!

    I think Volkov showed he is a better fighter than BB. I know BB won, but I would favor Volk to win a rematch

    Reading between the lines on Gane's team social media, it looks like we'could see UberGane as well.
    I'd like to see Gane box aggressively instead of point figthing with jabs and long kicks.

    On paper, they look like similarly good strikers good at keeping distance. In reality Volkov has bad boxing defense, any big guy who closed the distance fast landed clean punches on him (Blaydes, Hardy, Lewis). That's the worst possible flaw to have against Ngannou.
    Gane is extremely hard to hit clean, that makes him a much more competitive matchup.

    Dominated? Volkov won the last two rounds. Blaydes just took him down at will until he was tired. Also, mma math isn't really the way to go here.

    Got taken down 14 times, controlled for 20min, and outlanded 69-31 in sig strikes. Dominated is the word.

    A victory over Volkov will put him near the title contention.
