Report: Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway Rematch Targeted for UFC 251

Alexander Volkanovski earned the featherweight title by defeating Max Holloway in a fifth-round unanimous decision at December's UFC 245, and the UFC is reportedly scheduling a rematch.

According to ESPN's Ariel Helwani on Monday night, the UFC is discussing Holloway and Volkanovski fighting again for the featherweight belt July 11 at UFC 251. "The fight, however, isn't signed just yet," Helwani noted.

Volkanovski has won 18 straight fights. The 31-year-old last lost by technical knockout to Corey Nelson all the way back on May 9, 2013.

Holloway was riding a 13-fight winning streak before falling to Dustin Poirier in a unanimous decision at UFC 236 in April 13, 2019. The 28-year-old has now dropped two of his last three bouts with a July 2019 victory over Frankie Edgar sandwiched between Poirier and Volkanovski.

Volkanovski made it clear last week he wants to "prove" he's the best featherweight in the world by taking on Holloway again:

UFC President Dana White has been discussing Fight Island, an international remote location to continue events amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The location is rumored to be Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

Holloway is 21-5-0 all-time, while Volkanovski holds a 21-1-0 all-time record.

UFC 250 occurred over the weekend at a fan-less UFC APEX in Las Vegas. The event was headlined by Amanda Nunes' fifth-round decision victory over Felicia Spencer to defend her women's featherweight title.
I'm so fucking high.

If Alex can keep up the same pressure and avoid getting hit he should be ok.

I have no idea why they would book this fight. Holloway offered next to nothing in the first fight so I'm not sure what else he can bring in a rematch and expect another volk decision.

I would prefer kz or yair to have a shot first.

I gotta agree mr sir sir.

Although Holloway has more claim to a rematch than a lot of losing champs did in terms of having a long title reign, he really did little to nothing against Volkanovski last time. Pretty much all effective offense was from Alex that night


Volkanovski vs KZ would be sweet with Holloway fighting a contender like Kattar or Zabit in the mean time.
Officially 8-2 in sig bets. *pats back* 5 time A league champion. :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold:

And if Holloway loses again, what's next? No-one will want to see it again and he will be stuck waiting until someone else is champion.

Let him get a few wins under his belt, get some buzz behind him and have Rogan bang on about how 'he's back!' And have the rematch down the line if volk is still champ and if its someone else is champ, you have a credible contender coming off a win instead of the Cruz/Aldo situation. It's not like they are short of contenders at the minute!

Also Holloway vs Kattar would be sick! Very good call Mr Kitty

Max kills him after round 2 though

Exactly! You could not have said it better. If Max loses he puts himself and the UFC in such a weird position where he wont get a trilogy anytime soon and he will just beat all the best up and comers and new contenders at 145 until Volkanovski is no longer champ.

Holloway and Kattar would be a great. Especially a 5 round main event. Those two would have so many fun boxing exchanges.

Lol. Zabit would have some early success but man if he gassed yet again in the 3rd or 4th Max would hunt him down and box his ears off

Championship matchmaking is so lazy under WME... it's either instant rematches or the cheapest contender.
