Volkanovski vs Holloway live
Alexander Volkanovski is still certain that a rematch with the great Max Holloway is in the making. He isn’t sure when this fight will happen, but he will be more than happy to fight as soon as possible. Probably this fight will occur in UFC 251.
Alexander Volkanovski is running champion of UFC featherweight with his fantastic record standing at 8-0 UFC, 21-1 MMA. He dethroned Holloway (21-5 MMA, 17-5 UFC) a fight to claim the featherweight throne. This rematch was finalized for UFC 251 in Perth, Australia, which was originally supposed to go down on June 6 of this year. But now that obviously remains uncertainty due to the pandemic of COVID 19. COVID-19 has forced shutdowns all over the world, including the almost set to go UFC 249 in the USA at the last hour.
Volkanovski speaking about the June event of UFC which is known as UFC 351, he said “It just wasn’t signed, but … I know I was happy with it, I’m pretty sure Max was happy with it. We just didn’t get it done probably because of what was happening. They wanted to lock nothing in if they didn’t know, but we still don’t really know exactly what’s happening but it’s not looking good. I’m not going to try and talk the fight up because right now there’s nothing happening but yeah, it was close.”
Alexander Volkanovski is ready to go anywhere at any time!
It was previously scheduled that Volkanovski is supposed to defend his owned title in a homecoming match in front of the home crowd. He is still very much keen on it going down in Australia to participate in UFC 251. He mentioned, “I know that’s the fight I wanted to have in Australia. I still think that’s the biggest fight for me. Still think it’s the biggest fight for the division. I still think it’s the biggest fight for the UFC, and if we could still make this Aussie card happen sometime this year, I believe that’s what the Australian fans deserve – a rematch, you know? Max was a great champion and I’ll prove myself once again in front of my home crowd.”
Volkanovski believes he can continue to outdo his last performance against Holloway and he wants a chance to prove it. He mentioned,” To go out there and shut Max like that and outstrike him is really setting a statement. If anyone knows the game, they know that not many people can actually go out there and do that. So that’s saying something. But I believe the next time we face if that match happens, I’m finishing him inside the five, 100 hundred percent.”
Volkanovski wants this rematch so eagerly and even considering to fight at Dana White’s Fight Island. Volkanovski mentioned, “If this island thing is legit, and they can get me on this island to do my camp and then fight, I’m all for it. Give me a little camp there with my team, even if it’s the (City Kickboxing) boys, even if we’re all on the same card. We all do the camps with each other on the island, and then we fight – 100 percent I’ll be down for that. I think that will be unreal. But we just don’t know what’s happening.”
With all this information we could say that Alexander Volkanovski madly wants a rematch with Max Holloway and he will take it anywhere at any time in the world! So there is a huge chance we can see Volkanovski vs Holloway 2 in UFC 251.
