Volkov kept pumping that long punch set right up to the verdict Dean Herb Put an end to things. The heavyweight 6-foot-7 Volkov’s TKO finish came in 2:12 of the first round. This was Volkov’s fastest score in his six years in the UFC.
“I know he doesn’t have a good defense [at that moment]”Go back to the cage,” Volkov said in his interview after the fight. “I just see him go to the cage and come forward to knockout. Good fight.”
Rozenstruik protested the pause with Dean. He wasn’t brought down, although he was hurt and Dean seemed to think Rosenstruck had cleverly stopped defending himself.
Volkov said it was his desire to “move forward with the class”. ESPN ranked Volkov at number eight while Rosenstruck ranked tenth in the world in heavyweight.
“Now I’m waiting for the next battle,” said Volkov. “I’m ready for anything.”
Rozenstruik dropped a fragile left hook on the counter early in the first round. Despite this, Volkov pressed forward and fired those big shots when he saw Rosenstrik’s back towards the cage.
