I think Holloway wins by TKO in the 4th round. I just don’t think Volkanovski has fought anyone like Holloway, he’s just so skilled and relentless with his pace. He’s aggressive yet pinpoint with his striking. I think he just picks away at Volkanovski until he can’t take anymore and Holloway swarms and gets the stoppage.

Alexander Volkanovski is a legitimate threat at featherweight with dominant wins over two of the division’s best in Chad Mendes and Jose Aldo. Max Holloway has been equally dominant at his home division of 145 pounds. Volkanovski’s power coupled with his wrestling ability could cause problems for Holloway. I’m calling for Volkanovski to upset the champ with a fourth-round TKO.

This has the potential to be the best bout on the entire card, Volkanovski is on a seven fight win streak since joining the UFC and Holloway will be looking to continue his return to winning ways. Holloway via TKO/KO.

This fight is a lot tougher to call. Max Holloway can beat up just about anyone, just about. Alexander Volkanovski doesn’t seem like he can get beat up by anyone. Immovable force, unstoppable object. I think I got Volkanovski here, I don’t really know I it would be that much of an upset considering how impressive Volkanovski has been.
