Volkov respects Rozenstruik’s punching power, but believes that he’s the more technical striker between the two.
“He’s pretty dangerous. He has, as you say, power in his hands. He’s a good standup fighter, but I’ve had many of the same guys who have a lot of power in his hands,” Volkov said during the UFC Vegas Media Day.
“I believe I have good standup too, so I will try to show my best in this fight. I believe my technical skills are much better than his. Maybe I don’t have the same power in my punch, but for sure I’m more technical and for sure I have a lot of power in my kicks,” Volkov said. “For sure I will be feeling much better wrestling and grappling than him. I’m feeling it’s a good fight for me.”
