UFC Fight Night 115: Struve vs. Volkov

Time: 12:00 P.M. ET
TV Channel: UFC Fight Pass
Stefan Struve (28-8) will look to become a Heavyweight title contender once more in front of his home fans. In order to do so, he has to take on knockout specialist Alexander Volkov (28-6) in, what should be, a highly entertaining contest.
UFC 215 will feature a highly anticipated title defense from Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson (26-2-1) as he takes on massive underdog Ray Borg (11-2). Johnson will look to defend his Lightweight title for a UFC record 11th time. If Johnson can pull out the victory, it could potentially cement him as the greatest pound-for-pound UFC fighter of all-time.

The night features entertaining fighters like Uriah Hall (12-8) and Mike Perry (10-1) but is highlighted by a Middleweight fight between Luke Rockhold (15-3) and David Branch (21-3). Rockhold is looking to return to his winning ways after losing the Middleweight title to Michael Bisping in his last fight back in June 2016. His opponent is none other than David Branch who is in the midst of an 11 fight win streak. It has the makings of an amazing main event.
