As part of one of the main card matches of the next UFC tournament, Alexander Volkanovsky and Brian Ortega will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.
Alexander Volkanovsky (Australia)
Alexander held 22 meetings at the professional level, and lost only once. As part of the UFC fights, Volkanovsky goes without defeats at all, having developed a series of victories to eight matches. Recall that he spent the last two fights against Max Holloway. In the first case, he was able to prevail over his opponent thanks to a unanimous decision of the judges, and as a result of the rematch, he won by a split decision. Volkanovsky pulled up jiu-jitsu perfectly and received a brown belt, which will clearly help him celebrate success in the upcoming duel.
Brian Ortega (USA)
It is worth noting that Ortega also experienced the bitterness of defeats only once, while managing to earn 15 victories. This happened in December 2018, when he lost to Max Holloway, because after the fourth round, the doctor decided to stop the meeting. Ortega managed to rehabilitate himself two years later, and then he confidently defeated Jong Song John in five rounds. The American athlete, unlike his opponent, has a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and is noted for repeatedly catching his opponent with a guillotine, or taking them into a triangle.
I believe that Ortega is able to give heat in this fight, but it is unlikely that he will be able to take the title from Volkanovsky. The Australian is too confident in himself and his own abilities, which will certainly help him in defending the championship belt. Our bet will be on Alexander.
