After a rare off week the UFC is back in the APEX facility with UFC Vegas 56. Headlining this one are heavyweights Alexander Volkov and Jairzinho Rozenstruik. The co-main for this one is Dan Ige vs. Movsar Evloev in the featherweight division.
Rounding out the main card is Mike Trizano vs. Lucas Almeida, Poliana Botelho vs. Karine Silva, Ode Osbourne vs. Zarrukh Adashev and Alonzo Menifield vs. the curious case of Askar Mozharov.
Mozharov has seen his pro record slashed in the past few days after fight database Sherdog discovered discrepancies on the Ukranian’s record. It is believed that Mozharov has claimed to have won fights which may have never happened. This all means that Mozharov’s record of 25-7 from a week ago now stands at 21-12 according to Sherdog.
The eight-fight prelim card is headlined by veterans Felice Herrig and Karolina Kowalkiewicz. Karolina returning and Herrig likely retiring.
Before any of these fights happen, though, the fighters have to weigh-in. Don’t expect any surprises on the scales for the main event, although stranger things have happened in this sport.
