As a former opponent of Islam Makhachev, Alexander Volkanovski knows firsthand the challenges of facing the Russian juggernaut in the UFC octagon. Now, with Makhachev set to defend his lightweight title against Dustin Poirier at UFC 302, Volkanovski has weighed in on the matchup.

Makhachev’s Dominance

Volkanovski acknowledges that bookmakers have good reason to favor Makhachev. He describes him as “that good of a fighter.” Makhachev’s skill set, particularly his grappling and control, has been on full display in his previous fights. His calculated approach minimizes mistakes and keeps opponents guessing.

Why Islam Makhachev Will Prevail

Volkanovski believes that Makhachev’s safety-first style will be the key to victory. Here’s why:

Makhachev’s takedowns and ground control are exceptional. Once he grabs hold of an opponent, they’re in trouble. Volkanovski doesn’t see Dustin Poirier catching Makhachev off guard with submissions, especially considering the hours of defensive training Makhachev has put in.

Volkanovski predicts that Makhachev will play it safe on the feet. While Poirier’s striking power is a threat, Makhachev won’t take unnecessary risks. His calculated approach extends to striking exchanges. It will be a treat for every combat sports fan around the world as two heavyweights like Islam Makhachev and Dustin Poirier face each other for a fight that will be etched in history forever.

Volkanovski’s final verdict? He foresees Makhachev winning by submission. Despite his respect for Poirier and their good relationship, Volkanovski remains realistic. Makhachev’s well-rounded game, defensive prowess, and calculated approach make him a formidable opponent. If Poirier gets caught, it’s likely to be on the ground, where Makhachev’s submission skills shine.
