Alexander Volkov and Jairzinho Rozenstruik will be in the main event for next Saturday’s UFC main event. In the face of this Friday’s official weigh-in, in Las Vegas, the height difference caught the attention of the Russian with 13 centimeters more than the Suriname fighter. Volkov is 2.01 meters and Jairzinho is 1.88 meters. Facing each other, they both maintained their seriousness and respect.
The only face that showed provocation was the rematch between Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Felice Herrig. The Polish woman, who won her first fight in 2018, saw the American arrive with a provocative laugh as she stood in front of him. Kowalkiewicz eventually came to greet Herrig, but was left in a vacuum.

There was no provocation in the Brazilian confrontation between Poliana Botelho and Karine Silva, but there was no lack of tension in the air. Karine frowned as Poliana raised her left arm. The other two UFC representatives made serious and polite faces: Alex Leko was facing Joe Solecki, calm on both sides, as was Michael Trizano and Lucas Almeida.
