The fifth number of the UFC heavyweight, Alexander Volkov, published a post on social networks in which he shared his emotions from the victory over Alistair Overeem.
Recall that the fight between Volkov and Overeem became the main event of the UFC Fight Night 184 event in Las Vegas. The Russian cold-bloodedly shot his opponent from a distance, thereby forcing the referee to stop the fight in the second round, when the bloody Dutchman helplessly fell to the canvas.
“It was an honor for me to share the octagon with Alistair Overeem! At that very moment, I thought:” Am I really here right now, Overeem is in front of me and I will fight with him ?! “10 years ago, when I just started holding my first professional fights, I would never believe it.
I have never been physically gifted, I don’t have an outstanding talent for learning everything very quickly, and I have not been “led” by the “right” opponents during my career. My place in this sport is especially valuable to me now, because it is given to me with great effort and discipline. And I believe that again and again I can surprise you all, even if everything is against me! “– wrote Aleksnadr Volkov on Instagram.
