Alexander Volkanovski truly announced his arrival in the “big leagues” quite recently at UFC 232 when he brutally knocked out veteran and legend Chad Mendes in the second round via punches. However, after his victory over Mendes, several pictures of Volkanovski started flooding the internet in which he looked considerably bigger and heavier. Volkanovski has now himself took to Twitter and shared one such picture in which he looks considerably bigger and has sarcastically challenged Jon Jones for his light heavyweight title.
The fight between Alex and Mendes was extremely entertaining. It looked unlikely that that the fight will go to the distance, and it eventually did end in the second round when Volkanovski finished the fight via a TKO.
Volkanovski was a former American Football player and allegedly weighed around 215-220 pounds during his American Football career days. He currently has a record of 19-1 and is on a 16 fight win streak.
Below is the tweet by Volkanovski:
