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.
Want to know our thoughts on the matchup? Is the UFC pushing Ciryl Gane too fast too soon? Or is this the right time to throw him in there with yet another top-ranked UFC heavyweight? And what does this mean for the rest of the UFC heavyweight division including Stipe Miocic, Jon Jones, and Derrick Lewis?
Patrick Auger and Drake Riggs discuss all of that and more in our latest video.
