Khabib Nurmagomedov predicted the trilogy fight between Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway.
Alexander Volkanovski will face Max Holloway for a trilogy fight at UFC 276 this weekend.
Volkanovski won Chan Sung Jung at UFC 273 last April. He will defend his featherweight title with full confidence.
Khabib Nurmagomedov relies on giving his prediction on the winner of this fight:
About Holloway-Volkanovski, I am impressed with Volkanovski in his latest performances. I like Max Holloway.
I like it. It’s not personal, but I think Volkanovski will defend his title. A question: how? Who knows.
But I see him remaining champion. He has experience. I feel he has a little more fire than Max Holloway.”
Khabib and Max Holloway nearly battled for the vacant lightweight title at UFC 223. Then Tony Ferguson couldn’t fight.
Still, while Holloway had accepted the fight. Doctors didn’t permit him to fight because of his cutting.
He had indeed accepted the fight just 6 days before the date.
As for Volkanovski, he defeated Holloway at UFC 245 in December 2019 by unanimous decision. He became featherweight champion. Since then, he has never lost again.
Do you agree with Khabib’s prognosis?
