“I definitely think I won 2,3 and 5” Alexander Volkanovski disputes fight result vs Islam Makhachev at UFC 284, calls for rematch

Alexander Volkanovski lost his lightweight bout against Islam Makhachev yesterday in the UFC284, preventing him from becoming a double champion; however, after viewing the fight on tape, Volkanovski demanded a rematch.

The octagon battle between Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski took place at the RAC Arena in Perth, Australia, yesterday. Makhachev successfully defended his lightweight championship against Alexander Volkanovski, the current featherweight champion.

Throughout the entire bout, there was nonstop action and excitement, as was to be anticipated from a battle between two of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. From the beginning of the bout, it was clear that both fighters were fully prepared to demonstrate their incredible mixed martial arts skills.

The battle was decided by a unanimous decision with the scores being 48-47, 48-47, and 49-46 in favor of Islam. Despite the fact that Volk accepted the verdict when he was in the octagon, he afterward voiced his dissatisfaction via a tweet.

“Just watched the fight, I definitely think I won 2,3, and 5. Surprised I didn’t get my hand raised! Let’s do the rematch, anywhere, anytime!” Volkanovski tweeted.

Islam had previously stated that Alexander Volkanovski is not a very good grappler, therefore the Australian had a lot to prove. Throughout the fight, The Great displayed exceptional grappling skills on and off, indicating he genuinely improved his grappling skills since his last fight.

In an interview with UFC commentator Michael Bisping, Volkanovski said people didn’t give him a chance but wanted to give him a chance at lightweight and it was a fun fight. The Australian fighter also added that maybe he could have capitalized on some positions more which he failed to do.

” Congrats to Islam… Obviously, he didn’t respect my wrestling and grappling and I guess maybe I didn’t respect his strikes enough because he landed some good shots. Maybe we’ll settle pound-for-pound again,” said Volkanovski.

The 34-year-old fighter also sent a warning to his opponents in the featherweight division, letting them know that he is coming for them next.
