Jailton Almeida to Fight Alexander Romanov at UFC 302 on June 1

Oh boy, get ready for this one. Jailton Almeida and Alexander Romanov are about to throw down. And where, you ask? At UFC 302. That’s right.

Now, here’s the scoop that got everyone buzzing. Ag.Fight spilled the beans first. Picture this: Newark, N.J., Prudential Center, June 1. Not just any fight night, my friends. We’re also gonna see Anthony Hernandez and Roman Dolidze duking it out in a middleweight showdown.

But wait, there’s a twist in Almeida’s tale. He was all set to face Alexander Volkov. Plans changed, though. Volkov’s got a date with Sergei Pavlovich in Saudi Arabia come June 22. That’s at UFC on ABC 6, in case you’re marking your calendar.

Almeida, the Brazilian powerhouse, was riding high on a 15-fight win streak. Six of those, right in the UFC’s octagon. Then, bam! Curtis Blaydes happened at UFC 299. Despite that setback, let’s not forget the big names he’s taken down. Derrick Lewis, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, and Shamil Abdurakhimov, to name drop a few.

Switching gears to Romanov, aka “King Kong”. The man kicked off his MMA journey unbeaten in 16 fights. Impressive, right? UFC saw him finish five of those early. But then, the plot thickens. Marcin Tybura and Volkov handed him back-to-back losses. Yet, Romanov didn’t stay down for long. He claimed victory over Blagoy Ivanov in his last fight at UFC on ESPN 48.

So, there you have it. A heavyweight bout that’s got everyone talking. And a middleweight clash that’s just as buzzworthy. UFC 302, folks. Mark it down. It’s gonna be one for the books.
