Rogan: “Volkanovski beat Makhachev”
Longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan believes the featherweight champion Alexandra Volkanovski the best fighter of the promotion, regardless of weight category, and is also confident that the Australian should have become the winner based on the results of the fight with Islam Makhachev.
Let us remind you that the fight between the two champions, which took place in February last year at the UFC 284 tournament, was unanimously favored by the judges in favor of the Dagestani.
“Volkanovski is the best P4P fighter. He is not considered as such because he lost to Islam Makhachev. And I’m sure that a serious argument can be made in favor of the fact that he won this fight.
He did more damage. He imposed his fighting style on his opponent. Plus, it's insanely impressive that he moved up from featherweight to fight a big lightweight. This guy is one of the biggest guys in the lightweight division, and Alex was beating him up at the end of the fight. He took Makhachev to the ground, got on top of him and had great chances throughout the fight,” Rogan said on his podcast.
