Islam-Makhachev-vs-Alexander-VolkanovskiBookmaker Ratings: Prediction #1 –

Fight Result – Total Rounds Over 2.5

It’s likely that Great’s strengths and home walls will help him drag the bout into the 3rd leg, so the TO 2.5 option choice looks almost ideal. Otherwise, a win for the favourite, especially an early one, could be used as a backup plan. With the 70-30 split I’d give my preference to Makhachev, but I have no doubt Alex may surprise us with his performance.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Islam Makhachev vs Alexander Volkanovski

Islam Makhachev: 

Our fighter is not only the holder of the UFC 70kg title but also the man sitting on the second line of the P4P ranking. Islam holds the title of North Caucasus District Grappling Champion (UWW) and the IMC Sambo Champion. After making his debut in professional mixed martial arts, Makhachev distinguished himself with appearances in the ProFC, where he got his hands on the national cup, M-1, and since 2015, has been competing in the UFC, striding with a convincing 12-1 record. Islam is regarded as one of the best fighting adepts in MMA, as well as a worthy successor to the championship throne following the departure of Khabib Nurmagomedov. While admiring Islam’s parterre, many have failed to notice how seriously he has progressed in his boxing technique. Attack preparation, timing, tight side and jab, neat work – this guy is becoming a real problem.

Alexander Volkanovski: The Great

The UFC featherweight leader and P4P number 1 ranking, Alexander “The Great”, was a 5 MMA league champion before making his debut for the top promotion. He owned belts in two weight classes of the Roshambo organisation at once, winning the belt at 66kg in the AFC, PXC as well as Wollongong Wars. At Cage Conquest, Volkanovski took the welterweight title altogether. Volkanovski is the only fighter who has been able to outwork the cardio machine, Holloway. He works intimidatingly hard in tight bouts with exchanges and wrestling and has had four bouts of 25 minutes in the last 3 years. On the hand, Alex is very good, but it’s the kickboxing technique that gives him endless opportunities to devise plans to destroy his opponents.
