Volkanovsky extinguishes Holloway, signs Pereira to KO at night

Ahead of Israel Adesanya’s victory over Jared Cannonier on Saturday in Las Vegas, the UFC 276 event between Alexander Volkanovsky and Max Holloway has largely turned in favor of the Australian who holds the featherweight belt. Great performance by Brazilian Alex Pereira, winner by KO from Shawn Strickland in the first round.

In the first round, he put down Brazilian Sean Strickland on a terrible left hook. A masterful victory, perhaps, before the promising battle against Adesanya Israel.
