UFC Vegas 18 Weigh-Ins: Alistair Overeem, Alexander Volkov Make Weight For Heavyweight Banger


The UFC is back in Las Vegas this weekend, with a heavyweight clash in the main event. This is the weigh-in results for UFC Vegas 18: Alistair Overeem vs Alexander Volkov.

After having a slew of cards in a short amount of time, the UFC took a bit of a break as it returned from Abu Dhabi. Now they are set to have their first event in the United States since last December.

Headlining this card is the seemingly immortal Alistair Overeem, who is riding a two-fight winning streak. Standing across from him is Alexander Volkov, who is hoping to put together a streak of his own after going 2-2 in his last four.

In the co-main event, former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar has his second stint at bantamweight, taking on Cory Sandhagen. Also on the card is notable names like Michael Johnson and Clay Guida, as well as the promotional debut of former Rizin champ Manel Kape.
