Alistair Overeem vs. Alexander Volkov: should we give preference to the Russian?
Overeem vs. Volkov. UFC Prediction (Feb 7, 2021)
Alistair Overeem will step into the octagon again on February 7, and this time Alexander Volkov will be his rival. Who will be stronger? Find the answer in our prediction.
Alistair is a veteran of mixed martial arts and has had a total of 66 fights during his career. This is a truly fantastic result, considering the fact that in 47 cases he won. Even though he is now 40 years old, but despite this, Overeem continues to perform at a high level.
In 2019, he was defeated by Jairzinho Rozenstruyk, receiving a crushing blow. However, the last year turned out to be successful for the fighter, as the Dutchman prevailed over Walt Harris and Augusto Sakai, knocking out his rivals twice. Recently, Alistair has been trying to act more cautiously, because he has lost the speed with age.
Upcoming Predictions for Fighting
Alexander held a total of 40 professional fights and celebrated victory 32 times. The fighter has recently been performing not so successfully and alternates victories with defeats. In 2019 he defeated Greg Hardy, but in June last year lost to Curtis Blaydes by unanimous decision.
Fortunately, the Russian could recover and achieved success in the confrontation with Walt Harris in October, knocking him out in the second round, delivering a solid kick to the body with his foot. Note that "Drago" is almost always taller than his rivals, and also likes to work from a long distance.
In our opinion, it is right that bookmakers choose Alexander as their favorite. Volkov acts faster than his opponent, and in cardio, he must be better than Alistair. In addition, Overeem has not won three times in a row for a long time, so for "Drago" the upcoming match is a great chance to catch up the title race, and he must use it.
Our prediction is that Alexander Volkov will win for the odds of 1.51 on 1xbet.
