However, Volkanovski admits that Hollaway’s fighting style is very effective, he believes that it’s not going to work on him. “If he’s going to come at me like that, and he thinks he can grind me down and punch me and abstract me like that he’s gonna think again. Obviously, I am very powerful and if he’s gonna come at me alone he’s gonna see my punches are very hard.”
