Julija Storialenko made weight for her bout against Julian Avila. Storialenko notably fainted on the stage while making her weight when the duo was previously scheduled to clash at a Fight Night card.

Rani Barcelos, Tim Means, Renato Moicano, Andre Fili, and others also successfully managed to make the weight limits. The Fight Night card will see a total of 13 fights go down.

Gane, who is one of the taller heavyweights in the roster, came in lean for his fight against Volkov. ‘Drago’ is a rare opponent for Gane who will have a height advantage over him.

Ciryl Gane vs Alexander Volkov: What to expect?

Gane is one of the most crafty strikers in the division. His muay-thai base makes him a problem for anybody on the roster. Also, his control over range combined with the flair in his movement makes him a puzzle too hard to solve. His undefeated record has been a testament to the same.

Volkov, on the other hand, is a veteran. He will look to frustrate Gane with his length. Also, ‘Drago‘ is a perennial contender of the division with a ton of experience under his belt. He will look to carry on upon his current stellar run. The fight makes for a great spectacle for the fans.

Other than that there are some fights with the potential to be a banger and possibly being the Fight Of The Night. Andre Fili vs Daniel Pineda, Tim Means vs Nicolas Dalby are to name a few.
