I find it pretty disrespectful they don't even mention he was M-1 HW Champ......

He left M-1 with the belt after defending it once......he never even defended the Bellator belt he lost it to Minakov way back in 2013 back in bjorn era belly.

I've always liked volkov hes got great skill just never able to beat dominant wrestlers and or grapplers i don't see him fairing well in ufc.

If he couldn't hang in bellator i don't see how he makes it in ufc.

Best wins in bellator were Brett Rogers,Vinicius queiroz,Richard Hale(for vacant belt and tourney),& Blagoi Ivanov.

He got destroyed by minakov and beaten by kongo and tony johnson.
