Holloway will go down in the UFC record books as one of the greatest featherweights of all time, but Volkanovski made him look like an amateur at UFC 276, leaving fight fans in disbelief.

From the opening bell to the last bell it was a clinic by Volkanovski as he scored the unanimous decision win (50-45×3).

“Let them fascinate, stand up for yourself. Whether you hate me or love me, stand up for yourself,” Volkanovski said into the camera right after the fight.

Holloway was left a battered man as the decision was read and Volkanovski opened a vicious cut over Holloway’s left eye in the second round with a brutal right hand.

Hit the challenger with shots from every angle, the Australian champion left no doubt that he is the best in the world and arguably the greatest featherweight the UFC has seen.

Rogan said: “This performance tonight was extraordinary. This is the best we’ve seen him watch.

“We’ve never seen Holloway so devastated. His face is confused.”

Cormier said: “I am impressed with his improvements. Volkanovski has never looked so good.”

The Aussie said in his post-fight interview that he was ready to step up to the lightweight division and claim a second belt while calling out Charles Oliveira.

Volkanovski’s incredible demolition work on Holloway is taken to an even higher level when he drops a dizzying bomb that spills out of the arena.

“I broke my fucking hand in the first round,” Volkanovski says, looking down at his left hand.

Holloway refused to fall as Volkanovski’s attack continued well into the 24th minute of the fight.

Fans were impressed with the masterclass display the Aussie champion put on as he recorded his 12th consecutive UFC fight win, becoming the first fighter in UFC history to defeat the same opponent three times in title fights.
