Alexander Volkanovski: Record, Net Worth, Salary and Endorsement

Alexander Volkanovski has fought at multiple weight classes in his career. From middleweight to featherweight, he has had a spectacular run so far. ‘The Great’ is also the reigning UFC featherweight champion.

Volkanovski started training in Greco-Roman wrestling at a very young age. He won his first national championship at 12. However, he left wrestling and began competing in rugby at 14. He had an impressive career in rugby. However, he began training in MMA and wrestling during his offseasons. It is noteworthy that Alexander Volkanovski weighed around 214 lbs during the offseasons.

Volkanovski had four fights as an amateur at middleweight. At 23, he decided to make a career out of mixed martial arts. He dropped to welterweight and defeated Gerhard Voigt in his first professional bout.

‘The Great’ went 3-0 before suffering his first and only loss in his new career. After amassing thirteen wins in Australia, Guam, and New Zealand, Volkanovski finally made it to the United States. He dominated his first five opponents in the UFC before fighting returning veteran, Chad Mendes.

Although he faced some early adversity against Mendes, Volkanovski turned the tables and knocked him out. He was then matched up against legendary featherweight, Jose Aldo. As expected, he outclassed Aldo to win a title shot.

Alexander Volkanovski: UFC Champion

Volkanovski received his first-ever title shot against former champion Max Holloway. Holloway was an impressive run in the featherweight division before the fight. However, Volkanovski conquered Holloway and the division.

The duo re-matched at UFC 250. Surprisingly, Max Holloway looked strong in the early rounds. Many people thought he would win the fight. But the judges did not see it that way and awarded the decision to the champion. There was a ton of controversy surrounding the decision post-fight.

Besides that, he has offensive and defensive wrestling in his arsenal. And if he gets taken down, his experience as a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu should help him defend submission attacks.
