After months of hype UFC finally for the first time sent to “Fight island” to this weekend to hold your event. Yas island, in Abu Dhabi (UAE), will host four consecutive UFC. The first of these 251 the UFC will take place this Sunday night/morning, and the card will delight fans with three title fights.
In the co-main event will be a championship rematch at Featherweight between Holloway and his abuser Volkanovski.
After Holloway, the third time he defended his title at Featherweight, dominating understanding with Frankie Edgar at UFC 240, in the promotion were quick to declare him the greatest fighter in the history of the division. However, in the next battle Hawaiian unexpectedly stumbled. In December at UFC 245 he lost almost kikbokserskie match Volkanovski.
The win over Holloway became Volkanovski 18th in a row in the UFC his record is 8-0, including victories over Chad Mendes and Jose Aldo.
Forecast for battle
In the December battle, “Alexander the Great” in many ways surprised by Holloway for two things – its speed and lomikami. Instead of target the chin Volkanovski focused on the feet of an opponent.
Holloway used due to advantages in growth with ease gabite opponents, as he did with Edgar and Brian Ortega. Volkanovski though significantly below its growth, but the Australian has the advantage of reach. Also, the champion confident feeling in the clinch.
Not in favor of the former champion says that over the past few years, he received a lot of damage, and maybe his career is going downward. Maybe he will be better prepared for the speed and locical, but given that his style is based on the pressure and throwing many strikes, it can cause problems with the necessary adjustments. And not the fact that Holloway will not fall into a new trap Volkanovski. It looks like that max is not a very good match.
