UFC 284 Islam Makhachev vs Alexander Volkanovski: Experts’ prediction
For a variety of reasons, this is such an exciting clash. When Islam Makhachev submitted Charles Oliveira to capture the lightweight title in October, it was his eleventh straight victory, proving that he is the real deal. In comparison, Volkanovski has demonstrated that he is a cut above the rest of the featherweight field by going undefeated in a fantastic 22 contests.

The current lightweight champion is the obvious choice in this situation. No one at 155 pounds has overcome Makhachev’s wrestling heritage, backed by incredible strength and a lifetime of sambo training.
UFC 284 Islam Makhachev vs Alexander Volkanovski: A Surprise pick
There are so many indicators that Makhachev is the obvious choice in this situation, including the size disparity, the stylistic complement, and the manner the 31-year-old has recently been dominating the elite competition. Because of all of those factors, Makhachev is legitimately the favorite in this bout, but if Volkanovski hadn’t had a chance to pull off the upset, the contest would not have been scheduled.
Makhachev taking Volkanovski to the ground and dominating him the same way he has so many previous opponents won’t surprise me at all. Still, I’m backing the Australian to win two divisions at UFC 284.
