Curtis Blaydes will battle Alexander Volkov in the headliner of UFC Vegas 3 today, and in advance of the bout, the heavyweight’s declared his wrestling will be on full display.

Recently the powerful wrestler, who is coming off a stoppage win over Junior dos Santos in January, tweeted out the following comments.

FYI if y’all were hoping to see a 25 minute stand up war you probably shouldn’t tune in to the main event cause I fully intend on ragdolling my opponent just figured I’d let y’all know ahead of time

They can call it what they want but it’s won many fights in this promotion and that’s the name of the game win. Idk if ppl realize this but I get paid twice as much for winning not to stand and bang and get unnecessary CTE

The 29-year-old Blaydes (13-2) has gone three straight heading into today’s bout. Volkov (31-7) scored a decision win over Greg Hardy in his last bout and he’s gone 4-1 in his last 5 bouts.
