Alexander Volkanovski (32 years old, Australia)
Career: 22 wins – 1 loss
In UFC: 9 wins – 0 losses
1st place in the world featherweight rankings
4th place in the rating regardless of weight
Volkanovski joined the UFC in 2016 and has not suffered a single defeat in all the time. He became the champion of the organization in December 2019, defeating Max Holloway on points. Six months later, a revenge took place, in which the Australian won again by the same method.
In MMA, he most often wins by knockouts – 11 times (this is 50% of the number of all his wins). He also has three submissions and eight referee decisions.
Volkanovski is confident that he will easily pass the next opponent in the person of American Brian Ortega and will finally win the recognition of fans around the world.

Ortega suffered only one defeat in his career. This happened already when he was playing in the UFC. In December 2018, he was given the chance to fight for the title against Max Holloway, but he was unable to seize the opportunity. The fight ended in the fourth round with a TKO in favor of Max.
After that, Ortega had only one fight. He defeated the Korean Zombie via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 180. Many were surprised that after that Ortega was again given a title shot.
Brian is an excellent grappler and master of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In MMA, he often wins with painful and chokeholds – seven times. He also has three knockouts and five referee decisions.
Forecast and rate
Volkanovski is a very uncomfortable opponent for Ortega. He is shorter, and an American always has problems with such athletes. In addition, the Australian is an explosive fighter and can knock out an opponent at any time in the fight. Considering that Ortega often keeps his arms at torso level, this can be disastrous for him. I think Volkanovski will keep the UFC belt, but the fight will definitely not be easy for him.
