On a different interview, Alexander said the following :

“I fought the exact fight that I wanted to fight,” Volkanovski said. “I thought he was going to do more… A lot of people all week were like, ‘Watch the leg kicks.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, it’s going to be easy to throw leg kicks if I’m standing still.’ But I’m not worried about what I’m doing, then it’s going to be hard to pull the trigger. And I thought he would get a little bit more, maybe, annoyed.

“I thought it would maybe just make him pull the trigger a little bit more. I thought he might have got a little but frustrated and just would have been more wild. I could have caught him then, but he didn’t. He did stayed composed. He still started to tire. And then, before you knew it, it was close to the end and I was like, ‘I’ve got this.’”
