  • Kamaru Usman Covington

Volkanovski focused on Holloway's legs from the start and unleashed a barrage of kicks which left the Hawaiian's legs red and swollen and deprived him of one of its greatest weapons - its rapid movement.

Usman enters this fight the champ after scoring a dominant decision win over Tyron Woodley for the belt in March while Covington comes in with a win over Robbie Lawler in which he set the record for most strikes in a fight.

The 31-year-old from Windang, on the NSW South coast, became the first Australian-born fighter to win a UFC title, with New Zealand-born, Sydney-raised Robert Whittaker previously holding the middleweight title. He put the pressure on Holloway and did not fade away as former challengers had in the past.

The win brings his professional record to 20-1.

"He (Holloway) is really good with his distance, he's really good at sucking you into his range", Volkanovski said. "I just had to make sure I had a good corner behind me directing me through". Sometimes I went into his range and they had to pull me out.

"I'm only 28, I'm only getting better. I promise to be a great champion".
