A heavyweight bout for main event between former Bellator Heavyweight World Champion Alexander Volkov and Jairzinho Rozenstruik is expected main to the event.

Alexander Volkov and Jairzinho Rozenstruik are the UFC’s No. 7- and No. 8-ranked heavyweights, respectively.

Here this Light heavyweight bout between Nicolae Negumereanu and Alonzo Menifield was scheduled for the event. However, Negumereanu was removed from the event due to undisclosed reasons and replaced by Askar Mozharov also with middleweight bout between Joaquin Buckley and Abusupiyan Magomedov was linked to this event.

Alexander Volkov (34-1) was on his way to doing great things in the heavyweight division, winning four consecutive wins with two knockout wins after overcoming the M-1 challenge in Russia. Unfortunately for “Drago”, a Hail Mary Finish from Derrick Lewis slowed her down and Volkov was only 4-3 in the next three years.

Jairzinho Rozenstruik (11-3) suffered a similar setback after his red-hot start in the 265-pound weight class. Four wins in a row (including four violent knockouts) weren’t all there, as “Bigi Boy” was eliminated by last heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou, then turned 2-2 in his next four fights, both losing by decision.

The UFC Vegas 56 card on June 4 will also feature the featherweight showdown between Dan Ige and Movsar Evloev. Elsewhere on the card, Brianna Van Buren and Cynthia Calvillo collide in the strawweight division, while Abusupiyan Magomedov and Joaquin Buckley hook ‘em up at their 185 pounds.
