In a recent YouTube video, Alexander Volkanovski explained why he thinks Max Holloway will get his hands raised on 13th April.

“The way some people were talking, I thought maybe they were going to have – you can’t have bad odds on Max Holloway,” Volkanovski said, as quoted by “A lot of people are sitting there like, ‘Justin Gaethje, rah, rah, rah.’ Did we forget Max Holloway’s chin? Have we seen him in his last fights? The guy knows how to mix it up.

He used to be more hittable back in the day".

“Gaethje’s been five rounds, and we’ve seen him do well in the later rounds. He can go five rounds, but the pace that Max Holloway’s still going to bring, because he’s still going to be there to be hit.

Max Holloway will still be there to be hit or to make it a fight. We know Gaethje likes to throw bombs. Can he zap a bit of the life out of Gaethje? I think so. You know Max ain’t going to tire. Five rounder. Look, man, I have to lean towards Gaethje, but man, I thought the odds were going to be worse.

The way people are talking, acting like Max doesn’t stand a chance, you’re wrong. He has a massive chance in this. I’m going to say, for my pick, will be Max Holloway”.
