With a win over Chad Mendes, and perfectly obvious nickname, Alexander ‘The Great’ Volkanovski (Александар Волкановски), is now #4 in official UFC featherweight rankings. He has not lost since 2013, and is now 19-1 with 11 knockouts, 3 submissions, and 5 via decision.
The 30 year old Greek-Australian mixed martial artist and kickboxer with a brown-belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, is a former two time Australian Fighting Championship (AFC) featherweight champion, currently competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
An explosive athlete who used to compete in the Australian Rugby League at 5’6″ and 210 lbs. now competes at 145 lbs. and has only been training in martial arts since 2012. His high-level offensive and defensive wrestling, and improving strike variance (in particular his accurate and hasty jab, overhand right, and (9) lead left kick) have made him a promising yet improving force in the featherweight division.
He joins others like Brian Ortega, Renato Moicano, and Zabit Magomedsharipov among a few others (to include now dominant champion, Max Holloway) as “the new guard” of the featherweight division.
