The former Strikeforce, DREAM and K-1 champion Overeem was looking for one final run at gold to complete his illustrious career. The Dutchman had won four of his last five, including back-to-back knockouts. Volkov, meanwhile, was the Bellator MMA champion prior to setting foot in the Octagon. The towering Russian was coming off a second-round finish of Walt Harris in his last outing.
