UFC Vegas 56 is going to be held on June 4 at the Apex Center. Alexander Volkov will face Jairzinho Rozenstruik in the main event of the night. Here, you will the preview, date, time, how to watch on television and live stream, fight cards, odds, and prediction of the event.
Volkov is a towering striker who has had his ups and downs in a recent UFC competition, going 4-4 during his most recent eight bouts. He is currently rated sixth among heavyweights in the UFC and has a record of 34-10 with 22 knockouts and three submissions.
In the UFC, he has racked up some impressive victories, including knockout victories over Fabricio Werdum in 2018 and Alistair Overeem in February 2021.
Rozenstruik, who has a record of 12-3 with 11 knockouts, is the first fighter from Suriname to compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He is 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 258 pounds, making him a behemoth that should make for an intriguing contrast to Volkov, who is 6 feet 7 inches tall.
He won his first four fights in a row to earn a spot in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He made a name for himself by knocking out former champion Andrei Arlovski in only 29 seconds at UFC 244. He followed it up by finishing Overeem ONE MONTH LATER with four seconds left in the fifth round.
When Askar Mozharov faces Alonzo Menifield in another exciting fight, he will be making his debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championship and will be looking to build a name for himself. The Ukrainian is a really entertaining fighter who has finished his opponents 17 times over his 19 victories. On the other hand, Mozharov has been eliminated in each and every one of his 12 defeats.

UFC Vegas 56 Prediction:
The length of the battle might be a determining factor in the outcome. It is possible that Rozenstuik might catch Volkov with a game-changing punch during a three-round bout. But at the end of the fight, we may see Volkov as the winner. That’s a bit more difficult to do throughout a 25-minute match.
Prediction: Alexander Volkov will win the fight.
