Paired up against rising Alexandr Romanov, ‘Drago’ was able to handle his opponent’s grappling skills and imposed his will to score a first-round TKO win just a bit over two minutes into the second round.

The perception around Alexandr Romanov has sure changed over the last year.

Volkov with grappling is gonna be a major problem for people. Vast improvement with his overall grappling/decision-making. Glad I changed my pick today after seeing Romonov weigh-in. @Jon_Anik @BrianPetrieMMA
