UFC 276 will be remembered as the night reigning featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski put the nail in the coffin with his rivalry against Max Holloway.

Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway are undoubtedly two of the greatest featherweights to ever grace the octagon. Fans are really “blessed” to have witnessed two all-timers go against each other three times in the UFC octagon. The two met each other for the third time at UFC 276.

Back in July of 2022, when Volkanovski faced Holloway, he put all comparisons to rest with his dominant performance. It is very rare we get to see a stunner like Max Holloway get put to shame inside the octagon. Volkanovski will be remembered as the man who made a legend like Holloway look novice.

Max is one of the most-loved fighters in the history of the sport and to watch him get torn apart by Volkanovski was a devastating moment for UFC fans. However, everyone came to the realization that Alexander “The Great” Volkanovski was undoubtedly the best fighter on the planet currently. There was nothing that the “Blessed Express” could do to win the fight against Volk.

Volk not only beat Holloway in a dominant fashion but he outclassed Max in his own forte of “striking”. The proclaimed “best boxer in the UFC” was being out-struck by a 5 ft 6 fighter from the land down under. It made everyone realize that we indeed are living in the era of one of the greatest featherweights of all time, if not THE greatest to do it in the 145-pound division.

Check out the fans’ throwback to that performance from Volkanovski on Twitter and praise “The Great”. To many, it still stings that a fighter like Max looked absolutely novice at UFC 276.
