Holloway vs Volkanovski Preview
Holloway (21-4 MMA, 18-4 UFC), who’s won a record 15 fights at featherweight, is seeking a fourth defense of the division’s crown.
On Thursday, the 28-year-old expressed a desire to venture outside the weight class and compete for other titles.
“I want to be the best mixed martial artist in the world and being the best mixed martial artist in the world is not a guy who stays in his weight and dominates his weight,” Holloway said at a UFC media lunch, according to ESPN. “It is someone who goes to whatever weight. So whoever is the best guys in the world, you guys tell me. I’ve got a couple belts I want to fight for. The [lightweight], of course. You’ve got Khabib [Nurmagomedov], because he’s one of the best guys in the world.”
He added: “First thing first is Alex. And if the opportunity presents itself, I’m not backing down from it. I want to be one of the greatest in this era. As long as I’m alive and as long as I fight, whenever I’m fighting I want people to talk about, ‘Oh, man, he’s one of the greatest of his time.’ That’s what I want to do. First things first, Alex is a handful. I can’t be overlooking this guy.”
The 31-year-old Volkanovski (20-1, 7-0) has won 17 straight bouts dating back to his days in the Australian Fighting Championship. He became that promotion’s featherweight champion in June 2015.
“I’ve got so many more tools. I’ve got a high fight IQ. That’s why I’m such a bad match-up,” Volkanovski told the South China Morning Post. “I’m going to be calculated.
“If he’s worried about that takedown I’m gonna make him pay up top. If he’s worrying about up top I’m going to make him pay by taking him down.
“I’m going to mix it up so much he’s not going to know what’s happening. It’s going to be hard for him to pull the trigger, then before he knows it he’s losing those rounds.”
