Volkanovski witnessed Adesanya capture the UFC middleweight title by knocking out Robert Whittaker at UFC 243, while Hooker defeated Al Iaquinta for the biggest win of his UFC career earlier in the event.
Volkanovski trains with Adesanya and Hooker at City Kickboxing in Auckland, New Zealand. He is confident that his success and that of Adesanya and Hooker, is the product of City Kickboxing’s structure and coaching.
“When you have time and the structure like we do at City Kickboxing it makes it easier to form a specific game plan, create specific habits, fine tune your skill set and develop in all areas,” Volkanovski said. “I’ve been evolving and I’m going to show the world what I’ve added to my game.”
At UFC 245, Volkanovski’s title tilt with Holloway will serve as the co-main, with the welterweight grudge match between Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington headlining the event. And while there is no respect between Usman and Covington, Volkanovski doesn’t anticipate much disrespect between him and Holloway.
“Some people want to talk some s***; you know what I say, let the boys [Usman and Covington] chat to get the world watching,” Volkanovski said. “Then I will steal the show.”
“I know I’m bringing that belt home and that nice bit of change back for an early Christmas present. It’s going to change things and I can’t wait to do that for my family.”
