UFC FIGHT NIGHT: VOLKOV vs ROZENSTRUIK also known as UFC Vegas 56 aired live in Asia on Sunday, June 5 from UFC APEX in Las Vegas. The thrilling event was fast and furious, delivering five finishes on the main card, with four of them in the first round.

The hard-hitting heavyweight main event ended with a lighting fast first-round finish as No. 7 ranked Alexander Volkov had No. 8 ranked Jairzinho Rozenstruik hurt early and went in for the finish. After getting the TKO in just over 2 minutes, Volkov said,

"I'm feeling happy to get on a winning streak. Thank you to everyone who helped and supported me. I figured I could finish him, I know that he doesn't have good defense on the cage, so I put him there and went for the knockout. I'm ready for any challenges."

Two exciting featherweight contenders put on three rounds of action, which was a shut-out from No. 13 Movsar Evloev against No. 10 ranked Dan Ige. With big knees and dominant ground work, Evloev won by unanimous decision and remains undefeated. He said,

"I feel great. Thank you to my coach and all my team. I prepared very well. Big respect to my opponent, he was dangerous all the time. I think we deserve fight of the night. The next one, I need a big name for the title shot. I will be the next champion."
