UFC sophomore Alex Volkanovski describes how he went from a 210lb rugby player to an MMA featherweight.
At last year’s UFC Fight Night 101: Whittaker vs. Brunson, Alex Volkanovski won his UFC debut, advancing his record to an impressive 14-1. The victory, in which he subdued Yusuke Kasuya with punches, was the 28-year-old’s sixth stoppage win in row.
“It’s always an unreal feeling to get the win, but to get it in the UFC - especially on my debut - it was amazing,” said Volkanovski to Bloody Elbow. “It was a long time coming and now I just want to get that feeling a lot more, so I can’t wait to get in there and get my hand raised again.”
