Volkanovski Beat Holloway at UFC 245 for Featherweight Title
Volkanovski defeated Holloway at UFC 245 in December. That upset win ended Holloway’s long reign atop the UFC featherweight division and established the 31-year-old Volkanovnki as the premier apex predator at 145 pounds.
The shockingly easy victory by the new champion ended Holloway’s 14-fight win streak within the division. It also handed the 28-year-old American his first loss at featherweight since way back in 2013. At UFC 245, Volkanovski just constantly kept Holloway guessing in the fight, and by the end of the five rounds, the title had been seized.
Now it looks like the rematch is on the way.
Holloway’s long run as the top featherweight in the UFC seems to have given the fighter a solid chance to grab an immediate rematch. In fact, bookmakers around the world have already started to post odds for the fight, though it looks like Holloway will have to face Volkanovnki on the new champ’s home turf in Australia if he hopes to recapture his UFC title.
