Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos was supposed to fight Alexander Volkov at the CSAK Arena on November 9 in Moscow, Russia.

But the Brazilian heavyweight had to pull out of the card as he was hospitalised all week because of a bacterial infection in his leg. This resulted in UFC searching for replacements. Former Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy who fought last weekend at UFC Boston has stepped in to fight Volkov in the Russian’s home turf. The fight is less than three weeks away.

This fight is a huge step up in class for Hardy, who so far has been accused by the fans for fighting sub-par competition.

“‘When is Greg Hardy going to take a step up in competition?’ The answer is Nov. 9, as he’s agreed to replace Junior dos Santos against Alexander Volkov in Moscow. According to Hardy’s agent Malki Kawa, this was at his request.” – ESPN  MMA reporter Brett Okamoto reported on Twitter.

Hardy’s last fight against Ben Sosoli ended up being a No Contest as Hardy used an inhaler. On the other hand, Volkov is coming off of a fifth-round KO loss against Derrick Lewis at UFC 229 last year.
