On this episode of The Body Lock Podcast, rising UFC featherweight Alexander Volkanovski joins Jake Nichols and Siri Karri to discuss his victory over Darren Elkins, calling out Chad Mendes, and why he believes he is “pound-for-pound the strongest fighter in the UFC.”
At the age of 29, Volkanovski has amassed 18 wins in his 19-fight career and won all of his five bouts in the UFC. After his win over Darren Elkins, Volkanovski has found a spot in the UFC’s featherweight rankings and now sits at #11.
We also discussed Volkanovski’s injury that he carried into his bout with Elkins, his plans for two more fights in 2018, and why he chose to sign a new contract before his fight with Jeremy Kennedy.
