Coach Volkanovski: “Makhachev has weaknesses”

Coach Volkanovski:

Alexander Volkanovski’s trainer, Frank Hickman, is sure that his ward has all the necessary skills to defeat Islam Makhachev in the next fight and confirm the status of the best UFC fighter, regardless of the weight category.

“Like any other, Islam has its strengths and weaknesses,” Sportskeeda quoted an Australian specialist as saying. “We obviously know what he is good at and what we are good at. In this game, you want to impose your strategy on your opponent without allowing him to deviate too much from his own strategy – that’s the main principle of this game.

“Styles make fights and it’s a fight between two completely different styles, so it’s going to be a good fight. I think ‘Wolf’ is a better combination of different skills and is a more versatile and versatile fighter – that’s what we’re betting on.”

Recall that the superfight of Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski, in which the Russian will defend the UFC lightweight championship belt, will head the UFC 284 tournament in Perth, Australia, on February 12.
