Overeem vs Volkov Odds & Expert Predictions: Can Reem Continue Quest for Gold?
The UFC returns to the Apex Center after opening the year with three events at Fight Island. Headlining the first card on American soil in 2021 is a heavyweight tilt between Alistair Overeem and Alexander Volkov. UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs Volkov takes place on February 6.
This is a pivotal fight in the heavyweight division for both of these men, possibly even more so for Overeem, who wants one more push for a title shot but is 40 years old. I have a preview along with all of the UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs Volkov odds and predictions below.
Overeem finds himself on yet another two-fight winning streak but hasn’t had three victories in a row since he won four straight from 2014 to 2016. A win here at least keeps him in contention to fight for gold, while a loss puts him in a precarious spot.
Volkov has struggled to find his footing after bursting into the UFC in 2016. He had won four in a row but has been on a win-one, lose-one streak over his last four.
Online sportsbook Bovada has released UFC Fight Night: Overeem vs Volkov odds and has listed Volkov as the -190 favorite with Overeem coming back at +155. This means you would have to bet $190 to profit $100 with a Volkov win, while a $100 bet on an Overeem win would profit you $155.
Looking at the Overeem vs Volkov odds, our sports betting calculator tells us Volkov’s odds of -190 represent an implied win probability of 65.52 percent while Overeem’s implied win probability is 39.22 percent.

Alistair Overeem vs Alexander Volkov Odds & Prediction
Alexander “Drago” Volkov (-190) was well on his way to a title fight when he found himself up against Derrick Lewis on the main card of UFC 229 headlined by Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor. However, Volkov got caught with 11 seconds left in that fight, losing by knockout, and is now clawing his way back up the rankings. Alistair “Demolition Man” Overeem (+155) has previously climbed up the rankings but has been stopped by the top guys in the division. He says he wants one more title run before he retires – he needs a win here.
Following a knockout win over Marlon Moraes in October, Cory “Sandman” Sandhagen (-400)looks to make it two in a row and solidify himself as the No. 1 contender in the bantamweight division. Meanwhile, Frankie “The Answer” Edgar (+300) had a successful bantamweight debut, beating Pedro Munhoz following back-to-back losses at featherweight.
It has been a rough go recently for Marion “The Belizean Bruiser” Reneau (+175) as she backs her way into this fight on a three-fight losing streak. Looking to pile on another defeat to Reneau’s record and continue climbing the ranks in her own right is Macy Chiasson (-225), who won her lone fight in 2020 by unanimous decision.
The former Rizin bantamweight champion, Manel “Prodigio” Kape (+115), is ready to make his UFC debut, riding a three-fight winning streak, all by knockout. He’s taking on a staple of the UFC bantamweight division Alexandre “The Cannibal” Pantoja (-145) who looks to return to the win column following his decision loss last July.
After picking up back-to-back split decision victories in 2020, Andre “Mr. Highlight” Ewell (+240) aims to extend his winning streak to three. On the other side, Cody “The Spartan” Stamann (-310) hopes to return to the win column after a unanimous decision loss to Jimmie Rivera in July of last year.
Prediciton: Cody Stamann (-310) win decision
Diego Ferreira vs Beneil Dariush Odds & Prediction
A great fight to kick off the main card with a lengthy winning streak coming to an end. Beneil Dariush (EVEN) has won each of his last five fights, including a four-fight finish streak. Meanwhile, Diego Ferreira (-130) is riding a six-fight winning streak and looks to avenge a decision loss to Dariush back in 2014, one of just two losses on Ferreira’s record.
