Alexander Volkanovski recently became one of the first two athletes to secure official sponsorship from Prime Hydration. The other athlete is his fellow Oceania star and UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. Ever since their new partnership, both these UFC stars have been dropping content in collaboration with Prime’s co-founder and influencer boxer Logan Paul.

One of their collaborations was on Alexander Volkanovki’s YouTube channel, in a segment of ‘Cooking with Volk.’ The featherweight champion is also an ardent cook with commendable culinary skills. He hosted Paul and his friend and Impaulsive co-host Mike Majlak on the show. However, there was a moment when the host and his guest got a little bit too brutally honest.

Once both Paul and Majlak were done, Volkanovski had to pick the better taco. The 34-year-old went with Paul’s taco saying, “If I didn’t know who cooked well I’m gonna say I like that one [Paul’s] better. I apologize for that though.”

Majlak had a hilarious retort for Volkanovksi for not choosing his taco. He said, “You know what? Islam [Makhachev] did win the f***ing fight. You know what? I’m just gonna f***ing say it, alright? He had ground control the entire [time].” 

The group laughed off the banter and tried out their tacos. Both Paul and Majlak approved Volkanovski’s recipe. Words like “fantastic” and “incredible” were thrown around to appreciate the featherweight champion’s recipe.
