Newly crowned UFC Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski has enjoyed a steep rise up the 145lbs rankings, embarking on an incredible 8-0 run since entering the promotion in 2016 and becoming just the second ever Australian to snare UFC gold. Now on an 18-fight career win streak, ‘The Great’ has passed every test put forward to him in the UFC and in his own words, is on his way to becoming a “great champion”. Fighting out of the famed City Kickboxing gym, Volkanovski is one of the many trans-Tasman natives to make their mark on the sport of late and is part of a new age of ever-evolving fighters. The Australian’s pressure style and well rounded game give him that title, with his power credit to a background in Rugby League where he tipped the scales at over 200lbs. A strong grappler to boot, Volkanovski has many weapons which have all been on show throughout his UFC career, with a rematch against Max Holloway seemingly next in his midst.
