The Octagon heads to Yubileyny Sports Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia on April 20 for UFC Fight Night 149, along with the card is Now starting to shape up.

Though the UFC hasn’t officially declared the subsequent bouts, many media sources have reported themand it’s anticipated the UFC makes them official soon. Here are my ideas on the first three famous struggles for UFC St. Petersburg.
Alistair Overeem vs. Alexander Volkov, UFC Fight Night 149
The main event of UFC Fight Night 149 is scheduled to be a five-round heavyweight bout between Alistair Overeem and Alexander Volkov. Denis Geyko broke the information. Overeem (44-17, 1 NC) is 9-6 overall in the UFC and is coming off of a TKO win over Sergey Pavlovich. Volkov (30-7) is currently 4-1 in the UFC and is coming from a shocking last-second KO loss to Derrick Lewis. Prior to this he had been on a six-fight win series and was nearing name contention. Had Volkov lasted just 10 more minutes against Lewis he likely would have been fighting for a name by now. I am hoping people forget exactly how near Volkov was to winning this struggle, and maybe he’ll be the puppy here against Overeem because he’s coming off of a knockout win. I just don’t think Overeem’s chin can be trusted against a long, skinny and powerful striker such as Volkov, and that I lean towards the Russian within this one.
Sergey Pavlovich vs. Marcelo Golm, UFC Fight Night 149
An enjoyable heavyweight fight between Sergey Pavlovich and Marcelo Golm will also occur on this card. Via MMADNL, Igor Lazorin broke news. Pavlovich (12-1) was undefeated as a pro with most of his wins coming by knockout until he himself was knocked out by Overeem in his UFC debut. This was too much of a step up for Pavlovich and the UFC is eventually giving him a more favorable matchup in his home country. Golm (6-2) finished Christian Colombo in his Octagon debut but has since lost conclusions to Arjan Bhullar and Tim Johnson. Golm just has not been impressive at the UFC whatsoever and although Pavlovich did not look great against Overeem he has many benefits in this particular fight. I anticipate the Russian for a fairly big favorite to get his hands raised as a result.
Roxanne Modafferi vs. Antonina Shevchenko, UFC Fight Night 149
And lastly, women’s flyweights Roxanne Modafferi and Antonina are set to battle at this function. broke the fight first. Modafferi (22-15) is 1-3 overall from the UFC and is coming off of a decision loss to Sijara Eubanks. She has had a tiny career revival since moving down to flyweight, but is clearly at an athletic disadvantage in this matchup. Shevchenko (7-0) is the sister of UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko and she is so far 1-0 in the Octagon with a decision win over Ji Yeon Kim. This is a really favorable matchup for Shevchenko over somebody who can’t match her in the striking and I expect her to acquire a clear decision in this one. Start looking for her to be a big preferred to collect the win.
