Alexander Volkov made short work of Alexander Romanov tonight at UFC Fight Night 221, initially dropping him with a right hand before claiming a TKO stoppage via ground-and-pound.

Round One:

Volkov pressing forward, throws a punch and Romanov immediately drives into a takedown, marching him right across the Octagon as he tries to land it. Volkov defending against the cage now. Romanov tries to pull him away from the cage with the single leg, but Volkov stays on his feet and moves away soon afterwards.

Punch from Volkov. Clash of heads but they fight on. Right hand for Volkov lands to the top of the head and Romanov drops to his knees. Volkov on his back as Romanov turtles up, and now he starts to land ground and pound under the armpit to the head.

Romanov bleeding and the ref is warning him to move. Volkov makes that difficult to do by landing more punches and with Romanov just covering up face-down on the canvas that’s it, the fight is over quickly by TKO at 2.16mins of the first round.
