Quick Picks: UFC Night Night London – Werdum vs. Volkov

London’s calling the MMA world this weekend as another UFC card mainly filled with local talent is set for the English capital. Jimi Manuwa tops that list of UK fighters which also includes the likes of Paul Craig, Leon Edwards John Phillips and more while Farbicio Werdum is the real lone star from overseas on this card as he headlines against tricky Russian Alexander Volkov.

Here are my full picks for the event;

Heavyweight: Fabrício Werdum vs. Alexander Volkov – I’m going with Volkov here to cause a shock over 5 rounds.

Light Heavyweight: Jimi Manuwa vs. Jan Błachowicz: Fancy Manuwa to get the stoppage this time.

Bantamweight: Tom Duquesnoy vs. Terrion Ware – Big fight for the Fire Kid, think Duquesnoy takes it.
