Alexander Volkanovski is all set to have the biggest fight of his career at UFC 245. The Australian will be going up against Max Holloway at the event for the UFC Featherweight Championship and the hype surrounding the fight is at an all-time high.
With a professional record of 20-1 to his name, Volkanovski has not tasted defeat since 2013 and will be looking to keeping it that way at UFC 245. He will be coming into the fight on the back of a huge win against former champion Jose Aldo and Volkanovski reveals that each fight is like a new ‘job’ for him.
“In the Octagon he was another job. Obviously after I got the job done, I got really sulking, the reality really hit hard that ok I won. But going into these fights, I just go in as another job, another body in front of me, another game plan that I need to execute, that’s all I am worried about, that ton of vision, at a time. To laughter, after I get my job done, I have get really sulking with all of that top of the stuff,” he said.
There is, however, a huge difference between Jose Aldo and Max Holloway. And the most important once perhaps is the intensity that Holloway brings. But Volkanovski feels that he has the upper hand over his Hawaiian counterpart.
“100% ! On the graph of the job, the things he does very well just does not work for me,” he said.
The challenger concluded by saying that the fight is really important for him and his family.
“Very important. It means successful future for my family. Family is everything that has made me. This my job, is my career path I chose, I am winning for that and I am built for it,” he concluded.
While the fight between Holloway and Volkanovski will serve as the co-main event, Kamaru Usman vs. Colby Covington will headline UFC 245 which happens this weekend.
