UFC returned to Las Vegas with UFC Vegas 18 today. The event was headlined by the Heavyweight showdown between Alistair Overeem and Alexander Volkov.
In the main event, Volkov stopped Overeem in the second round and ended Overeem’s two-fight winning streak. The Russian was coming into the fight on the back of a win against Walt Harris and the win over Overeem is expected to boost his case in the UFC Heavyweight division.
