This will be the 31 year-old Australian’s first UFC title fight. His only loss to date was by TKO by fellow countryman Corey Nelson.
Volkanovski first entered the Octagon in 2016, since when the former Australian rugby player has yet to suffer a defeat, whilst beating quality fighters such as Jose Aldo, Chad Mendes and and Darren Elkins.
Holloway looks to have an edge in terms of his striking and movement and he has a five inch height advantage too. Despite that, it’s Volkanovski who has the longer reach.
