Sounds like all he has to do now is learn to tell the truth. He could start with letting his Yes mean Yes, and his No mean No. Its literally the first thing a young man learns when growing up. A man is only as good as his word. Had Islam lost that match, You bet your ass Volk would want that belt. Imagine if you would if Islam refused to give it up lol. Went on Ariel Show 2 hours after the fight saying that he was still the 155lb Champion.

@DGM Amazing fight we definitely need to see a rematch. Islam had more total strikes, a higher percentage of significant strikes, more takedowns, more control time, more submission attempts. He had an off night, Volk had his best ever fight with a full camp and STILL lost. Volk however shows why he was #1 p4p and why until Islam vs Charles no fighter on a double digit win streak has ever beaten another champion with a double digit win streak. Islam has beaten 2 in a row now.

@Bryan Islam has never been able to jump a submission the way ortega has lmao. The second he starts throwing flying triangles let me know. Islam has completely different grapplying styles and keys to victory. Ortega is slick, islam forces submissions. Islam is a wrestler with submissions, Ortega is a grappler. Very different ground styles.

@Mohammed Ali "used to weigh" No point reading past that point. Volk walks around at around 165 to 170 normally, while Bumslam walks around at 190-195. 25-30 lean mass advantage as a wrestler fighting a striker. Yeah, he's a coward. He should be fighting guys like Colby, Burns, and Usman.

@Mohammed Ali Lol, you're saying Khabib is the only fighter to dominate Barboza and Johnson?? Charles dominated Dustin and Justin too? Chandler as well as more top 150s than Khabib ever did. One thing you Kebab fanboys always have in common is that you suffer from tunnel vision. Man has 3 titled defenses, mostly fought cab drivers, dominated a few good fighters (but so did many other fighters)... Yet, never bring up the true GOATs like GSP, Jones... You cannot argue vs facts, but for all I care keep living in that bubble of yours.

Islam called out Volk immediately after the Olives fight. Not the other way around. Also he didn’t say anything about being mad about Khabib not cornering. He said he didn’t think it would change any and that Islam would still be just as good and dangerous without Khabib in is corner even noting that Islam has fought without Khabib several times. Nice try trying to completely fabricate a narrative though.

Love this fight, two honest warriors, fair play to Islam for taking the fight, fair play to Volk for not shying away from the lbs/lbs legacy

Confidence is key. Volk needs to keep it in every second of the fight. I’m very very excited to see this. This is going to be a war

I never hated Alex but his rivalry with Max always made me overlook him. Hard not to respect him now, though. Always kept his head down, stayed humble and worked hard.

It's gonna be tough but I'm pulling for Volk. This is one of the best fights ever made by the UFC. Can't wait!

Alex pumps up the fans with his confidence and odds makers widens the odd against him. Seems like they see a nervous fighter trying to convince himself that he can do it.

Love Alexander! Those fights against Holloway were epic. Islam is going to give him the biggest challenge so far in his MMA career, and I’m sure he will be up for it. I just hope Islam stays at 145lbs after the weigh in, because I know Alexander will. Should be an interesting fight, but I’m taking Alexander!

Both Alex and Islam are role models. This fight is so epic, i almost don't want to see it happen because it feels wrong to have "good" guys fight each other. Is always better to have nice person fighting ugly person.

UFC has absolute fire fights: Alex vs Islam, Yan vs Dvalishvili, Sandhagen vs Vera, Edwards vs Usman, Pereira vs Adesanya and Jones vs Gane. These are all happening over the next 2 months! These are all extremely interesting matchups with intriguing implications. Excited to see how it unfolds.

At the end of the day, it's a fight. No weight will matter on the day of the fight, no wagers will play any part, no business will matter inside that octagon, it's gonna be no holds barred in the middle of that cage, it's gonna be a wrap. Who ever wins this fight will hold a great deal of respect in the MMA world moving forward. 👊🏼 As a fan, I'm just excited to see the two best of the best in UFC go at each other and we get to witness the best 25 minutes of this year in MMA world 🌍 come 11 Feb.
