    You guys are sleeping on this dude. Strong compact wrestling background good boxing and Great chin. Max Holloway has not faced anybody like him. He will soundly out point him and grab the title. Prove me wrong.

    I feel like Holloway has a harder time hitting these really short guys. That overhand right is always going to be there for Volkanovski

    That's my most anticipated fight on the card

    He tuned up Edgar, Aldo 2x, & Cub. Which short fighters has he not been able to hit lately? Landed head shots at an 84% clip vs Frankie.

    Maybe I'm under the illusion he didn't land as much cuz he didn't throw as often as normal, we'll see what happens with Volk. The dude is hard to hit and that camp he's in is all about feints. They're high level on the feet over there

    Yeah, I wouldn't exactly call volk underrated but he doesnt seem to get quite the attention he deserves imo. He presents a lot of interesting problems for Holloway that I'm curious to see if the champ has an answer to.

    Overall, I'm expecting another great fw title fight.

    Who is underestimating him? The consensus here is that he'll be Max's toughest test at FW. Myself included, and I'm the conductor of the blessed express.

    It was a forgettable fight. Frankie had absolutely nothing for Max.

    i mean... he's like one of the tallest of the division and he is on a massive win streak. You sure he's having a tough time?

    I could see him landing the same shots Edgar did but w/ more power. His pressure could give Max fits, I fear.

    Max does have a very sneaking choke game tho. Caught cub, used high-elbow guillotine vs Lamas to stuff TDs & end up on top. Caught Poirier in a gator-roll at the end of round 4.

    It's a great fight, really looking forward to it. I don't expect either guy to be more than a -120 favorite or so come fight night.

    Can’t wait for this fight. Defiantly the two best guys in the div facing off.

    Holloway is amazing but his title reign has to end at some point.

    I feel like Volk is the man to do it.

    Anyone who takes out Mendes and Aldo is a threat.

    Volkanovski is a strong and athletic powerhouse with KO power and is extremely well rounded. I have him beating Max.

    Volk is Max's version of Mendes with a rugby background instead of College wrestling.
    It's gonna be a banger but I have my boy Max by TKO. Volk win or lose is STILL MY BOY!

    No hate on Volk but he his biggest achievement is pinning Aldo to the cage for 3 rounds. I don't see how people can be confident he will TKO Max where Conor, Aldo, Stephens, Poirier, Pettis and Ortega couldn't.
