Volkov called out a few names ahead of him in the UFC’s official heavyweight rankings in his in-cage post-fight interview with Jon Anik.
“Any challenge, any guy with a big name,” Volkov said. “(Alistair) Overeem, (Junior) Dos Santos, (Jairzinho) Rozenstruik – anybody who can take me back to the belt.”
“I have to go home, but I’m ready,” Volkov said. “I don’t know when there will be new UFC shows, probably in December. But I need about two or three months to prepare for camp. I’m ready. I just need the UFC to give me a name and in two or three months that I need to do my camp. I’ll be ready.”
