Gane and Volkov are top-ranked heavyweights in search of their first opportunity at UFC gold. Gane, the No. 3 ranked fighter, remains unbeaten in his MMA career with an 8-0 record. All but two of his fights have ended with a finish, but he has more recently cemented himself as a contender with wins over ex-champ Junior Dos Santos and Jairzinho Rozenstruik in his past two appearances. Volkov, meanwhile, is ranked No. 5 and has climbed the rankings with a pair of wins in recent fights against Walt Harris and Alistair Overeem, respectively.
