The winner of this fight could be in a line for a future title shot. Gane is unbeaten and there is every reason to believe he is going to stay that way. Volkov has a good UFC record at 7-2, but I am not impressed with who he has beaten. His last three wins were against Overeem, Harris and Hardy. There is no question that Gane is better than those three. I think Gane is still being underrated and that the price of less than 2-1 in this fight is a bargain. I will take Gane to get the win on Saturday night.
