And now is the time to build on that momentum with our best bets for UFC Fight Night: Volkov vs Rozenstruik, including picks for the main event.

Main Event Odds & Pick

Alexander Volkov vs Jairzinho Rozenstruik Odds
Alexander Volkov-160
Jairzinho Rozenstruik+130

Both these fighters are desperate for a win to maintain their grasp on a spot among the top 10 in the UFC heavyweight rankings. Alexander Volkov (-160) remains pegged as the No. 7 contender despite tallying consecutive wins just once during his current 4-4-0 run in the Octagon.

Jairzinho Rozenstruik (+130) has been idle for almost nine months since his loss to Blaydes, but he has managed to maintain the No. 8 spot in the heavyweight rankings.

Volkov: Need To Knows
  • Volkov’s recent struggles reached new depths in his last outing. “Drago” lasted just 3:45 before being submitted by Tom Aspinall in their March matchup, and that defeat was as bad as it sounds. In addition to being taken down twice by Aspinall, Volkov was also outstruck by a wide 35-13 margin in the worst defeat of his 13-year pro MMA career.
  • A proven finisher early in his career, Volkov has now seen two of his recent four losses come inside three rounds. And when he has lasted into championship rounds, things have not gone well, although the 33-year-old Russian managed to go a full five rounds in his recent dates with Curtis Blaydes and Ciryl Gane.
  • Volkov outstruck Gane early in their Fight Night date last June before wearing down in late rounds. And in his clash with Blaydes, not only was Volkov outstruck by a wide margin, he also found himself controlled for almost 20 minutes of that matchup.
  • Despite his recent struggles, Volkov’s punching power should not be underestimated. The list of heavyweights he has finished on punches is impressive, including Fabricio Werdum, Walt Harris and Alastair Overeem, whom he knocked out in the second round of their date at UFC Vegas 18.
  • Volkov’s last three fights were Tom Aspinall (loss – submission), Marcin Tybura (win – unanimous decision) and Ciryl Gane (loss – unanimous decision).
Rozenstruik: Need To Knows
  • Jairzinho Rozenstruik tallied knockout victories inside five minutes in seven of his first nine fights as a pro. But maintaining that pace while climbing the UFC rankings have proven to be a tough task for the hard-hitting Surinamese heavyweight.
  • Poised for a breakthrough at UFC 249, Rozenstruik instead received a taste of his own medicine with a crushing KO loss just 20 seconds into his clash with the top contender at the time, Francis Ngannou.
  • While he managed to rebound with a second-round KO win over Junior dos Santos, rediscovering that fearsome touch has eluded “Bigi Boy” since his loss to Ngannou. Rozenstruik was thoroughly outclassed in a five-round unanimous-decision loss to Gane, and also had no answer for Curtis Blaydes’ grappling on his way to a unanimous-decision loss last time out.
  • Fortunately for Rozenstruik, he is unlikely to spend much time on the mat against Volkov. Indeed, when faced with the prospect of a slugfest, Bigi Boy remains a one-punch threat, evident in his past devastating wins over the likes of dos Santos, Andrei Arlovski and Allen Crowder, whom he sent into retirement with a KO victory just nine seconds into their tilt.
  • Given Volkov’s recent struggles, it is tough to overlook the value in Rozenstruik’s positive odds.
  • Rozenstruik’s last three fights were Curtis Blaydes (loss – unanimous decision), Augusto Sakai (win – TKO punches) and Ciryl Gane (loss – unanimous decision).

Prediction: Jairzinho Rozenstruik (+130); UNDER 3.5 rounds (-105)

Dan Ige vs Movsar Evloev Odds & Prediction

Dan Ige vs Movsar Evloev Betting Odds
Dan Ige+300
Movsar Evloev-400

Movsar Evloev (-400) looks to continue his steady rise up the UFC featherweight rankings and maintain a perfect pro MMA record when he battles Dan Ige (+300) in Saturday evening’s co-main event.

Evloev has been idle since improving to 15-0 with a unanimous-decision win over Hakeen Dawodu almost a year ago at UFC 263, while Ige now rides the first two-fight losing streak of his career after dropping a unanimous decision to Josh Emmett at UFC 269.

Evloev: Need To Knows
  • Evloev enters the Octagon on Saturday as a massive favorite and with good reason. The 28-year-old Russian has been a dominant force in the featherweight division since joining the UFC three years ago. He has tallied five straight victories, all by unanimous decision, lifting him to No. 13 in the UFC rankings.
  • A holder of the prestigious Master of Sport designation in Greco-Roman wrestling, Evloev is a beast on the mat. Despite his relatively short tenure in the UFC, he currently ranks seventh among active featherweights with 18 total takedowns.
  • In addition to averaging over 6:45 of control time over his past two fights, Evloev has also established himself as an effective striker. However, there is no question that his greatest strength is wearing down opponents over the long haul with his superior grappling ability.
  • Evloev’s last three fights were Hakeem Dowadu (win – unanimous decision), Nik Lentz (win – split decision) and Mike Grundy (win – unanimous decision).
Ige: Need To Knows
  • Ige finds himself at a very real risk of falling out of the UFC featherweight rankings as he looks to this weekend’s clash with Evloev. The 30-year-old Hawaiian enjoyed a steady rise in the rankings while claiming victory in six of his first seven Octagon appearances.
  • But with losses in three of his past four outings, another defeat will devastate his current position as the No. 10 contender in the division.
  • Ige never recovered from a shaky start in his last outing, a three-round unanimous-decision loss to Josh Emmett, who hadn’t fought for 18 months due to an injury. Ige also had no answer for Chan Sung Jung’s superior grappling game in a five-round unanimous-decision loss to the Korean Zombie almost a year ago.
  • Indeed, the lone positive during Ige’s current 1-3-0 run was a stunning KO victory just 22 seconds into his date with Gavin Tucker at UFC Vegas 21. However, duplicating such an effort against an opponent as polished as Evloev is likely too much to ask.
  • Ige’s last three fights were Josh Emmett (loss – unanimous decision), Chan Sung Jung (loss – unanimous decision) and Gavin Tucker (win – KO).

Prediction: Movsar Evloev (-400); UNDER 2.5 rounds (+325)

Michael Trizano vs Lucas Almeida Odds & Pick

Michael Trizano vs Lucas Almeida Betting Odds
Michael Trizano-210
Lucas Almeida+165

Lucas Almeida (+165) aims to make his UFC debut a winning one when he battles fellow featherweight Michael Trizano (-210) in a three-round clash on Saturday afternoon.

Almeida takes an impressive 13-1-0 pro MMA record into his first UFC Fight Night appearance. Conversely, Trizano is looking to rebound after losing two of his past three outings.

Trizano: Need To Knows
  • A former Maverick MMA lightweight champion, Trizano has struggled since returning to the featherweight division, with both his career defeats coming at 145 pounds.
  • While he has finished opponents in four of his nine career victories, his past three wins as a featherweight have all come by decision.
  • Trizano has struggled on the mat in each of his past three outings, with opponents averaging almost four minutes of control in those contests.
  • Trizano’s last three fights were Hakeem Dawodu (loss – unanimous decision), Ludovit Klein (win – unanimous decision) and Grant Dawson (loss – submission).
Almeida: Need To Knows
  • Newcomer Almeida earned the right to join the UFC while racking up a perfect 11-0-0 record and claiming the Jungle Fight and MF lightweight titles.
  • The 31-year-old Brazilian has finished opponents in each of his 12 overall career wins, including eight wins by knockout and four by submission.
  • It is important not to overlook his struggles in his first taste of UFC action at Dana White’s Contender Series - Contender Series 2021: Week 5, where he suffered his lone defeat as a pro, a three-round unanimous-decision loss to Daniel Zellhuber, who manhandled him toe-to-toe and on the mat.
  • Almeida’s last three fights were Italo Trindade (win – submission), Daniel Zellhuber (loss – unanimous decision) and Nico Cocuccio (win – TKO).

Prediction: Michael Trizano (-210); OVER 2.5 rounds (-200)
