UFC Fight Night Volkov vs Aspinall Predictions

Alexander Volkov vs Tom Aspinall – Heavyweight division

Alexander Volkov TALE OF THE TAPE Tom Aspinall
33 Age 28
6 ft. 7 in. Height 6 ft. 5 in.
80 in. Reach 78 in.
34-9 Record 11-2

Hometown favorite Tom Aspinall will look to extend his winning streak to eight on Saturday night. Aspinall has had four fights in the UFC thus far in his career and has finished them all – one by submission and three by TKO.

Alexander Volkov is 1-1 over his last two fights, having lost to Cyril Gane but rebounding with a decision win over Marcin Tybura last October.

The Russian fighter will have a two-inch advantage in both height and reach and he holds brown belts in both Brazilian jiu-jitsu and karate.

However it is Aspinall, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, who takes the edge with the oddsmakers as a slight -122 favorite to win.

Arnold Allen vs. Dan Hooker – Featherweight division

Arnold Allen TALE OF THE TAPE Dan Hooker
28 Age 32
5 ft. 8 in. Height 6 ft.
67 in. Reach 75 in.
70 in. Record 21-11

Dan Hooker will have a noticeable size advantage Saturday night as he makes his featherweight debut – standing four-inches taller than Arnold Allen and having a reach advantage of five-inches.

However, Hooker has struggled as of late, going just 1-3 over his last four fights in the lightweight division.

Allen, on the other hand, has just one professional loss on his resume and has now won ten-in a row – eight of those wins taking place in the UFC.

Allen most recently defeated Sodiq Yusuff via unanimous decision last April.

Both men hold the rank of purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and it is Allen who currently sits as the -122 favorite heading into this co-main event contest.

Paddy Pimblett vs. Rodrigo Vargas – Lightweight division

Paddy Pimblett TALE OF THE TAPE Rodrigo Vargas
27 Age 36
5 ft. 10 in. Height 5 ft. 7 in.
73 in. Reach 71.5 in.
17-3 Record 12-4

England’s new favorite lightweight Paddy Pimblett returns to action this Saturday, which will be his second UFC appearance since defeating Luigi Vendramini via first-round TKO in his promotional debut last September.

Rodrigo Vargas, known as “Kazula”, has gone just 1-2 over his last three fights but is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Rong Zhu that took place at UFC 261 last April.

Pimblett – fighting in his home country – will hold advantages in both reach and height. He is a -430 favorite to win, and those aren’t even the biggest odds on this main card!

Gunnar Nelson vs. Takashi Sato – Welterweight division

Gunnar Nelson TALE OF THE TAPE Takashi Sato
33 Age 31
5 ft. 11 in. Height 5 ft. 1o in.
72 in. Reach 73 in.
17-5-1 Record 16-4

After two years away from the cage, Gunnar Nelson returns to action with a new UFC contract in hand. He hasn’t fought since his decision loss to Gilbert Burns in September 2019. The loss was his second in a row.

Originally set to face Claudio Silva, Nelson now finds himself taking one last-minute replacement Takashi Sato, who is 2-2 over his last four fights. Sato hasn’t fought since November 2020 when he lost to Miguel Baeza via second-round submission.

Nelson will stand one-inch taller but Sato will have a one-inch reach advantage.

Gunnar Nelson holds a second-degree black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and is considered a -450 favorite. Still not the biggest favorite on the card.

Molly McCann vs. Luana Carolina – Women’s flyweight division

Molly McCann TALE OF THE TAPE Luana Carolina
31 Age 28
5 ft. 4 in. Height 5 ft. 6 in.
72 in. Reach 69 in.
11-4 Record 8-2

Terrance McKinney has two UFC fights under his belt and has yet to leave the first round. After winning his debut in seven seconds, McKinney most recently defeated Fares Ziam via first-round submission this past February.

Drew Dober, a UFC veteran of more than 15 fights has lost his last two in a row – most recently dropping a decision to Brad Riddell at UFC 263 last June. However, he has three performance bonuses over his last four fights.

Dober has a brown belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and black belt in taekwondo but McKinney has the height and reach advantage. But his lack of UFC experience makes McKinney the underdog at +144.

Alex Pereira vs. Bruno Silva – Middleweight division

Alex Pereira TALE OF THE TAPE Bruno Silva
34 Age 32
6 ft. 4 in. Height 6 ft.
80 in. Reach 74 in.
4-1 Record 22-6

Another Liverpool native, Molly McCann snapped a two-fight skid in her most recent bout last September where she earned a unanimous decision (and fight of the night honors) over Ji Yeon Kim.

Her opponent, Luana Carolina, currently finds herself on a two-fight winning streak, having most recently defeated Lupita Godinez by decision last October. She is 3-1 under the UFC banner but has had weight issues in the past.

McCann will stand two-inches shorter and will sacrifice seven-inches of reach to Carolina. Despite that, McCann sits as a -138 favorite over her opponent this Saturday.

Jai Herbert vs. Ilia Topuria – Lightweight division

Jai Herbert TALE OF THE TAPE Ilia Topuria
33 Age 25
6 ft. 1 in. Height 5 ft. 7 in.
87 in. Reach 69 in.
11-3 Record 11-0

Undefeated Georgian fighter Ilia Topuria opens up the main card of this event and is the largest betting favorite on the card at -480.

He has won all three of his UFC bouts, including back-to-back first-round knockouts over Damon Jackson and, most recently, Ryan Hall.

Jai Herbert will stand five-inches taller and have a reach advantage of eight-inches but his UFC record of 1-2 doesn’t bode well in the eyes of the oddsmakers despite defeating Khama Worthy via TKO in his most recent outing.
