Former Bellator heavyweight champion Alexander “Drago” Volkov scored the biggest win of his career on Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London. Volkov knocked out former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum in the fourth round of the main event. Drago survived Werdum’s relentless attempts at taking the fight to the ground. The Russian will now enter the top five ranking in the UFC’s heavyweight division, and Werdum will now need to restart his journey for another title shot.
