    Volkov seems to be a popular pick lately for this marquee HW match up.

    I think Gane is going to get in and out and pick his shots against Volkov using his speed, movement and tactfulness.

    Volkov is pretty flat footed and slow but he’s super rangey and has a great chin.

    Gane vs Ngannou/Lewis next up

    it's nearly impossible to do against a guy that tall and that "knows how to use his reach" in a small Apex octagon

    I see him keeping his distance and blitzing in quickly scoring and then disengaging.
    Then he will try to mix a up a few td if he needs to.

    Gane ud imo via superior speed and iq

    Volkov can probably take him down and control him if he has to

    I feel that Volkov has better technique and is better at range, Gane can win but Volkov is the rightful favourite

    I usually bet against Volkov but I fancy him in this, he has a tendency to move forward quite a lot and put on a fair bit of pressure, I think he could have Gane on the backfoot.

    This is a close fight, I have no idea who’s gonna take it, but I do believe the winner will face and lose to Ngannou.

    People are writing off Volkov very quickly.

    Kind of silly.

    Hes shown a lot of improvements in his last few, and he also has good cardio.

    This is a toss-up.

    I agree. I took my time to write him off very carefully.

    Volkov is probably going to need to turn it into a war to have a good chance I'd agree, he did do that against Reem but Allistair has I think always had problems when opponents pressure him in MMA.

    Most obviously I do think Gane has better lateral movement than Reem who was always very prone to backing off in straight lines.

    If Volkov comes in bulked up like he did against Reem he's got a great shot imo, that newfound power with his range was pretty impressive.

    There are question marks about Gane, while we know where Volkov is at, as he is a 40-fight veteran in MMA. We don't know how good is Gane's chin and how he would fare against rangy, technical and intelligent fighter. All in all a fantastic 50:50 fight.

    This is how I picture the fight going as well. Be interesting to see how the size difference plays out in the fight in the small cage.

    The “Frenchman” is going to get his chin, and liver tested hard.
