Gane recently jumped to #4 in the official UFC heavyweight rankings after a unanimous decision win against Jairzinho Rozenstruik in February. Gane is undefeated after eight fights and is now 5-0 in the UFC.

Volkov most recently defeated Alistair Overeem in February and has now won three of his last four bouts in the UFC.
