Alexander Volkanovski, UFC’s reigning featherweight champion and top P4P fighter believes Max Holloway has not declined much and still has enough horsepower in him to take down most of the division.

Max Holloway makes a very hard fight for anyone in our division: Alexander Volkanovski

One of the most popular MMA fighters of all time, Holloway reigned as the 145-pound champ between 2017 June and 2019 December, before being dethroned by Volkanovski at UFC 245 via unanimous decision. The duo went on to meet two times after that and in both occasions, it was ‘The Great’ prevailing over the Hawaiian via decisions.

Having gone 0-3 against the current champion, there have been questions on whether “Blessed” has hit the plateau and is on the downhill, but none other than Volkanovski himself believes his longtime adversary is still able to dominate most of the top of the division.

“I still think he was a great champ. I still think he’s a great fighter, and I still think he beats most of the top guys, anyway,” said Volkanovski during a recent interview with The AllStar. “We’ve got a very strong division, a lot of guys that are coming up. And obviously, through watching me fight and watching some of the top guys fight, everyone’s going to start evolving more and more and more.”

While shedding praise on the number one ranked featherweight, Volkanovski did mention that while he believes Holloway can beat most of the division, he is still out of Holloway’s reach as he feels he went to a different level.

“So I feel like you’re going to start seeing these other guys that are rising up, really start to get up there, anyway,” Volkanovski went on, “But I still think Max – it wasn’t Max went down, it was just I literally had him figured out and I just went to another level – especially my confidence and things like that. I think that’s what it was more about. I think he makes a very hard fight for anyone in our division.” [H/T MMA Fighting]
