UFC 245 goes against the??T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on December 14 and also the featherweight belt will be on line since MaxBlessed Holloway creates his fourth title defense against AlexanderThe Great Volkanovski. The reigning champion is still a -170 favorite to retain his strap, although the challenger is coming back in +140.

Since he lost a period of 14 bouts, at 2013 to Conor McGregor blessed hasnt suffered a loss from the division. Max did go until the lightweight division in April however lost by choice to Dustin Poirier.
Meanwhile, the challenger, Volkanovski, endured a loss in his fourth professional fight but is a perfect 17-0 since then. The Australian was a favorite that is sizable as he increased the UFC featherweight ranks but came in at +110 and EVEN in his last 2 fights against Jose Aldo along with Chad Mendes.
Holloway loves getting into a great old-fashioned brawl with his enemies, until they fade trading punches for rounds on end and then he selects the win by choice or knockout. He has 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, in addition, he absorbs quite a lot of harm, a mean of 105.2 on his past five. Dont look for your champ to bring the fight to the floor, though. He??has four takedowns on his last 10 bouts.
Similar to the champ, Volkanovski averages a large quantity of attacks, churns out an average of 75.3 at three-round bouts when compared with this five-round battles that Holloway has been in.
