Check out the full fight video highlights of Ciryl Gane vs Alexander Volkov from the UFC Vegas 30 main event.

The top of the UFC Vegas 30 fight card saw the promotion’s #3 rated heavyweight, Ciryl Gane win a unanimous decision over the #5 rated Alexander Volkov. The entirety of the fight took place on the feet as Gane used his fight IQ to land the harder shots and rightfully earn the decision win.

Both men were exchanging some heavy leg kicks in the first round as the fight stayed on the feet. Gane attempted a takedown after landing a overhand right but Volkov did a good job of defending against the cage.

The second and third rounds were much the same with Gane landing the better strikes, however Volkov was still very much in the fight. Gane landed a hard step-in knee as Volkov was pressed against the fence.

Gane’s dominance continued in the fourth and fifth rounds as Volkov couldn’t keep up with the output of the Frenchman. Gane was on the receiving end of an eye poke late on but he managed to continue and see out the remainder of the fight.
