Ouch: Watch UFC main-event winner Alexander Volkov get a nasty cut stitched up



Alexander Volkov took some damage in his recent UFC headliner, but the pain continued after he left the cage.

This past Saturday at UFC Fight Night 115, Volkov (29-6 MMA, 3-0 UFC) stopped fellow big man Stefan Struve (28-9 MMA, 12-7 UFC) via third-round TKO in a grueling heavyweight attraction.

Volkov endured heavy blows, some eye-pokes and a nasty gash under his left eye during the fight, which streamed on UFC Fight Pass from Ahoy Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Afterward, Volkov, who was cut open with a Struve knee, got the wound stitched up.

It’s not fun to watch (it’s a pretty big cut, after all) – and it was clearly even less fun to experience, despite Volkov’s efforts to play it cool. Check it out (via Instagram):

Volkov, who’s No. 13 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA heavyweight rankings, is now 3-0 in the UFC. After the Struve victory, the 28-year-old Russian and former M-1 champion stumped for a UFC event in Russia.
