UFC on ESPN 11 Results: Curtis Blaydes Out Wrestles Alexander Volkov

The Ultimate Fighting Championship returned to action this weekend at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas for UFC on ESPN 11. In the main event of the night, top-ranked heavyweight contenders Curtis Blaydes and Alexander Volkov went toe-to-toe in a one-sided bout.

Blaydes was able to overwhelm Volkov throughout the five-round fight en route to a unanimous decision victory.

Blaydes relied on his takedowns early and often to earn his fourth straight win, 49-46, 48-47, 49-46. During his victory, Blaydes set a UFC heavyweight record with 14 takedowns while going the distance for the first time in his career. Volkov, a former Bellator champion, meanwhile, has lost two of his last three fights.

“It was a good experience to go 25 minutes,” Blaydes said. “I know there are things I gotta work on, but a win is a win. I know I need to work on my conditioning after the third round. I’m happy with the win. Volkov is legit.”
