Volkanovski Has to Defy the Odds Against Makhachev

Jan 19, 2023
A. J. Riot

Only four fighters in the history of the UFC have held championship belts in two weight divisions. Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier, and Henry Cejudo have managed it in the men’s brand, while Amanda Nunes is the only female star to become a double champion.

UFC pound-for-pound number one Alexander Volkanovski is looking to add his name to that list when he steps up in weight to face lightweight champion Islam Makhachev at UFC 284 in Perth, Australia. It is billed as one of the biggest events in world sport in 2023.

Not only will Volkanovski be fighting a man who is bigger than him, but Makhachev is one of the most dangerous operators in UFC, as he has won his last five fights inside the distance. He forced a submission from Charles Oliveira to claim his world title last October at UFC 280.

The oddsmakers make Volkanovski the underdog in this fight. He is +260 with Bodog to prevail and cause an upset. Not only can fans get the best UFC odds with the sportsbook, but they can land up to $400 in welcome promotion when they open an account.
