Auckland's Young, 11-3 as a pro, brings a five-fight winning streak into his Octagon debut against Windang's Volkanovski, who has won 12 straight, including two UFC bouts against Yusuke Kasuya and Mizuto Hirota, leading up to this weekend's matchup, which will be contested at a catchweight of 150 pounds.
