Talking to reporters during the post-fight interview of UFC Vegas 42, White said, “It’s one of those things. They’re razor-thin, and he just comes in and puts on a performance like this. This is a guy Volkanovski is going to have to just get him out of the way and do it again.” Volkanovski holds two wins over Max and if can do it one more time, then he will cement himself as one of the greatest featherweights of all time.

Everybody was amazed by how good Rodriguez looked even after two years of absence from the octagon. Dana was certainly impressed by his fight, he claimed, “It’s one of the best fights I’ve ever seen. The fact that Yair was off for two years and comes in and puts on a performance like this, unheard of. It’s incredible.”

“Then Max, I didn’t think he was going to make it out of the second round with the calf kicks, and then he after made it to the next round, I’m like he’s probably not going to be able to walk out of the octagon by himself. He’s walking around back there like nothing even happened. He said his leg is fine. It’s unbelievable how tough this guy is.”
