UFC 245 goes from the??T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on December 14 and the featherweight belt will be on line as MaxBlessed Holloway creates his fourth title defense against AlexanderThe Great Volkanovski. While Volkanovski, the challenger, is coming back in +140 the champion is still a -170 preferred to retain his strap.
Holloway has been a big favored in eight of the last nine fights, coming in as an underdog in his title fight. Since he lost in 2013, a period of 14 bouts blessed has not suffered a reduction in the division. Max did move until the division in April however dropped by choice.
Meanwhile, the challenger, Volkanovski, endured a loss in his fourth professional fight in 2013??nevertheless is a since then. Since he climbed the UFC featherweight positions but came in in his last 2 fights from Jose Aldo along with Chad Mendes at +110 and also EVEN the Australian was a favorite.
Holloway loves becoming a excellent brawl with his opponents, until they fade, trading punches for rounds end and he selects the win by choice or knockout. Hes got conditioning and a output which has seen him land over 100 strikes of the last seven fights, such as 290 against Brian Ortega December. However, he also absorbs quite a lot of harm, a mean of 105.2 on his last five. Dont search for your champ to bring the battle to the ground. He??has only four takedowns on his last 10 bouts.
Similar to the champ, Volkanovski averages a large volume of attacks, dishing out an average of 75.3 in three-round bouts in comparison with the five-round struggles that Holloway has been in. That being said, over his seven UFC bouts, just once has he consumed more than 50 strikes and that came from Darren Elkins. Additionally, The Great racked up 16 takedowns during his first five battles in the Octagon??but none in his final two.
Odds at October 17
