Final Combating Championship (UFC) President Dana White instructed the blended martial arts (MMA) media that he didn’t anticipate reigning featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski to love the concept of a direct Max Holloway trilogy.
Not surprisingly, the Aussie caught to the script.
“By the tip of the 12 months, we’re going to have a transparent No. 1 and also you’re going to only maintain giving Max rematches? It simply doesn’t actually make sense proper now,” Volkanovski instructed Submission Radio. “I need No. 1 contenders. I need some contemporary blood in there.”
So does the remainder of the High 5.
Volkanovski scored a convincing unanimous choice win over the Hawaiian after they first went to struggle at UFC 245 final December; nonetheless, “Blessed” turned in a significantly better efficiency of their UFC 251 rematch and might have gotten screwed by the judges.
“We all know that final struggle was shut however the judges gave me the choice and that’s that,” Volkanovski mentioned. “Within the first struggle, regardless that it was aggressive, I fairly clearly gained that struggle. To only give him one other rematch right away and put the division on maintain, it simply doesn’t actually make sense.”
What does make sense is placing Holloway towards this surging contender.
