Fabricio Werdum vs Alexander Volkov – Heavyweight

A former Heavyweight Champion, Fabricio Werdum, opened the betting up as a big favorite at -245, and he maintained for about a month. However, wagers on his opponent caused him to go down to -175. Alexander Volkov started as a +175 underdog but he improved his score to +155.


Nasrat Haqparast vs. Nad Narimani: Heavyweight

Both competitors opened up with money lines of -120 but constant betting led Haqparast into the role of a favorite at around -160, while Narimani is now an underdog at +140.

We have one very simple question – can Alexander Volkov make a surprise and knock Fabricio Werdum out?
