Main Card

Max Holloway

This 28-year-old featherweight fighter hails from Waianae, Hawaii and fights from Gracie Technics and Hawaii Elite MMA. Max Holloway had made noise in the UFC as the fighter that defeated Jose Aldo twice and both by TKOs. Since then he has been undefeated in the featherweight division. Holloway tried his luck in the Lightweight Division but he got beaten up by Dustin Portier just this April. Proving that he is the king in his division, he handed Frankie Edgar a loss just this June in UFC 240. Four of his last five wins were all via TKOs and he will look for to wear off his opponent and strike in the later rounds. Against Volkanovski he got to be wary but in the end, the odds much favor the rising star of Holloway. 

Alexander Volkanovski

Volkanovski is an Australian featherweight fighter that comes from Windang, New South Wales. His last defeat was registered way back in 2013 and he is riding a 17-match winning streak and seven straight under the UFC umbrella. Like Holloway, he defeated Aldo but he pushed the Brazilian fighter to a brink winning via Unanimous Decision. He also created a huge buzz when he won against Chad Mendes back in UFC 232 in December 2018. This 31-year-old fighter would look for the KO punch to take down his opponent and has been the much more favored fighter in all his fights when it came down to the judges’ scorecards. Against Holloway, he is expected to give the champion one tough battle with both fighters looking to knock down each other.
