UFC 245 goes contrary to the??T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on December 14 and also the featherweight belt will be on line since MaxBlessed Holloway makes his fourth title defense against AlexanderThe Great Volkanovski. While the challenger is arriving back in +140 Holloway, the reigning winner, is still a favorite to keep his strap.
Holloway has been a favored in eight of his last nine fights, coming in as an underdog only against Jose Aldo, a struggle he won through TKO in his first title fight. Since he dropped at 2013 blessed hasnt suffered a loss in the featherweight division. Max did go up to the division in April but lost to Dustin Poirier by decision.
Meanwhile, Volkanovski, the challenger, endured a reduction in 2013 in his fourth professional fight but is a perfect 17-0 since . The Australian was a favorite that is large since he climbed the UFC featherweight ranks but came in at +110 and also EVEN in his previous 2 fights from Jose Aldo along with Chad Mendes.
Holloway enjoys becoming a great old-fashioned brawl with his opponents, till they fade trading punches for rounds end and then he selects the win by knockout or choice. He has conditioning and a outcome that has seen him property over 100 strikes at a few of his last seven fights. But he also absorbs quite a bit of damage, an average of 105.2 within his last five. Do not search for the champ to bring the battle to the ground, however. He??has four takedowns on his past 10 bouts.
Similar to the champ, Volkanovski averages a higher volume of strikes, churns out an average of 75.3 in three-round bouts in comparison with this five-round battles that Holloway was in. That said, on his seven UFC bouts has he consumed over 50 strikes and that came against Darren Elkins. The Great racked up 16 takedowns in his last two through his first five fights from the Octagon but not one.
