    With his second title defense in the books, let's take a look at his growing resume.

    Alexander has just beat the best:
    wrestler in divisional history
    muay thai striker/kickboxer in divisional history
    volume striker/boxer in divisional history
    jiu jitsu specialist in divisional history

    That's about as good of a win streak as it gets.

    What are you're thought's on the current 145 kingpin, his outstanding submission defense, any similar win streaks?

    How many wins does he need before you admit he’s the greatest?

    Its fucking crazy.

    Hes on a 20 fight win streak.

    And he has beaten two all time greats of the division including Max twice.

    Almost got ko'ed by the wrestler
    Had a boring ass fight with the kickboxer
    Arguably lost to the boxer
    Almost got choked out by the jiu jitsu specialist

    Having said that, I can see him defending the belt 2-3 more times.

    Hallways are scary to be fair.

    Holloway lost both fights.
    Volk won 1-3 in the first and 3-5 in the second. Hard to argue with the striking differentials. They were competitive fights though and they'll probably fight again.

    Max vs Volk seems to be the only fight to make sense. It's fortunate to have two guys be the best on around the same level.

    He's amazing, but, I think Max won the second fight, still, Alex is great and not sure why so many give him disrspect tbh.

    He's entering GOAT status.

    People will argue Max beat him but it was close and could have gone either way so complaining about is just being a Max stan at this point.

    He beat Aldo, but not prime Aldo.

    He beat Mendez but not at the height of his career.

    He beat Ortega to a pulp at Ortega's high point of his career.

    I think he still needs a couple more big wins to make GOAT status but with Giga coming up and if they can get McKee there are good opponents coming up.

    The next fight I’d like to see him in will probably never happen, but I’d love to see Volk vs AJ McKee.

    Screams of a poster who didn't watch the main event, and just checked the results to see a decision outcome. Your loss.

    Volk does have some boring fights at times but last night's wasn't one.
