UFC on ESPN+ 7: Overeem vs. Oleinik fight card

70 0

The UFC is making their return to Russia this week, which means an early card for North American fans. UFC on ESPN+ 7 goes down on Saturday, April 20th in the Yubileyny Sports Palace in beautiful Saint Petersburg, and has a new main event now that the original was scrapped a few days ago.

Instead of seeing Alistair Overeem meeting Alexander Volkov in the Octagon, Russian fans will now be greeted by a headliner pitting Overeem against veteran submission wizard Aleksei Oleinik. The co-main will see Islam Makhachev meeting Arman Tsarukyan.
