UFC Fight Night: Ciryl Gane vs. Alexander Volkov added to June 26 event

Both fighters need a big win to stay in the title shot conversation

The UFC confirmed today a heavyweight title eliminator bout between No. 4 Ciryl Gane and No. 5 Alexander Volkov.

Gane (8-0-0), 30, is coming off a decision win in February over Jairzinho Rozenstruik at UFC Vegas 20 that president Dana White was not publicly impressed by.

Meanwhile, Volkov (33-8-0), 32, has wins over Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris in his last two bouts.

This is an important bout for both fighters who are looking to stay in the heavyweight title shot picture.

UFC Fight Night is scheduled for June 26 at a venue to be determined. More bouts are expected to be announced.
