My Prediction For Alexander Volkanovski vs Max Holloway

Max Halloway has been active in the Ultimate Fighting Championship for so long that its easy to forget that at age 28 he is just about to enter what is supposed to be his prime athletic years. Their first fight went to the scorecards which was unanimously won by the current champ but only after Volkanovski’s leg kicks had already taken its toll on Holloway.

Volkanovski to his credit used his leg kicks with lethal effectiveness and Holloway could not find an answer for them. Other than that, he didn’t really show any other effective weapon. Holloway has always shown tremendous fight IQ and look for him correcting his mistakes and learning from the previous fight. My prediction is a UD win for Holloway, Max will find a way to neutralize Volkanovski’s leg kicks and outscore him with the volume of punches he is usually known for.
