An entertaining night of fights at UFC Rotterdam was capped off by a hard-hitting heavyweight battle between giants Alexander Volkov and Stefan Struve.

After 13 minutes of action, it was the 6-foot-7 Volkov who toppled the 6-foot-11 Struve in the third round with a non-stop barrage of punches. Volkov is now 3-0 in the UFC and he looks poised to someday challenge for a championship belt.

In other action, Siyar Bahadurzada returned from a 546-day layoff to knock out newcomer Rob Wilkinson, and 40-year-old Marion Reneau welcomed Talita Bernardo to the Octagon with a last-minute TKO win.

Those dramatic finishes left fighters with plenty to talk about on Twitter:
