Volkov (34-9-0), 33, ranked No. 5 in the division, is on a bit of a roll with three wins in his last four bouts, with only a decision loss to No. 1 contender Ciryl Gane. “Drago’s” last fight was a decision victory over Marcin Tybura at UFC 267 last October.
Meanwhile, the No. 10 Aspinall (11-2-0), 28, has been on fire with seven straight finishes. His last contest was a dominant TKO win over Sergey Spirak at UFC Fight Night 191 last September.
