After a week off, the UFC is back in action! This means that the Overtime Heroics MMA staff is too! Check out our UFC Vegas 18: Overeem vs Volkov Staff Picks.

What a card Dana White has lined up for us this weekend with UFC Vegas 18: Overeem vs Volkov! Alistair Overeem will face Alexander Volkov in the main event that should end in a finish. The co-main event will see Cory Sandhagen fight Frankie Edgar in a bantamweight bout that has title contention implications.

UFC veteran Alexandre Pantoja will see a debuting Manel Kape, who can end a fight in the blink of an eye. Cody Stamann will be facing UFC newcomer Askar Askar at featherweight after Andre Ewell was forced to withdraw earlier in the week. Diego Ferriera will rematch Beneil Dariush in a lightweight scrap that is sure to be a banger.

Without further ado, let’s get on to our Overeem vs Volkov Staff Picks!
