Can Alexander Volkanovski Perform Well Against Conor McGregor at 155 lbs?
Conor McGregor is 1-3 at 155 lbs, which is not very impressive if compared with other fighters. However, McGregor has been a lightweight champion, which makes him a credible threat for the 155-pounders.
Meanwhile, Alexander Volkanovski is 0-1 in the UFC lightweight division. He failed to snatch Islam Makhachev’s lightweight title at UFC 284.
The loss, however, was controversial, and many fighters felt that the result could have gone in a different direction. Volkanovski managed to out-wrestle Makhachev and also out punched the lightweight champion several times.
Despite all the effort, judges felt that Islam Makhachev deserved victory. Hence, Volkanovski shall offer a tough challenge to Conor McGregor even if the fight happens at 155 lbs.
