Volkov, dos Santos to headline UFC Moscow

Heavyweight contenders Alexander Volkov and Junior dos Santos will battle in the main event of UFC Moscow on Nov. 9, officials announced Sunday, according to Alexander K. Lee of MMAFighting.com.

Volkov,

the sixth-ranked contender, hasn't fought since losing to Derrick Lewis at UFC 229 in October 2018. The defeat snapped a six-fight winning streak that began prior to his arrival in the promotion.

Dos Santos, the third-ranked contender, is also coming off a loss, as he was knocked out by Francis Ngannou in June. The former champion won his previous three fights.
