    Volk is hilarious. I still don't get why half this forum doesn't like him.

    I watch israel adesanya reaction to the submission attempts and man it was intense. He went from 0 to 100 fast, from relax to panic

    In reference to the thread what was your reaction to Volk escaping those submissions:

    @PhilLeotardo
    "I wasn't all that surprised at all. Those subs looked weak to me, and like Ortega said, Volk's neck is like a tree trunk. He is un-submittable. Ortega had good positioning on those subs per usual, but they weren't in that deep, and they didn't look very forceful."

    Nah. I don't agree with that notion. Everyone talks about this guy not finishing fights. Well, look at his strength of schedule. The better the fighter, the harder he is to finish.

    Plenty of people hate on Max for not being able to finish but he should have gotten a TKO over Kattar. Everyone finds ways to hate on great fighters. It's ridiculous.

    He was a boring point fighter in my eyes until that fight. Great guy though

    I find about 50% of the Americans on this site don't like Australians by default. Unclear why.

    Maybe cos we're such good cunts.

    The first comment to call him out was hilarious too.

    That’s not true. We just get wierdly nationalisitc when someone from another country shits on us. Aussies are generally regarded as very nice people in the US. Most Americans would love to visit Australia, despite being so damned far away and being home to all sorts of poisonous critters that can kill you quickly. Or at least, that’s what we’ve been told.
