He talks more about his Macedonian ancestry and most of his fans are Macedonians. Many more Australians and even New Zealanders are following him more too as they can clearly see heís an exciting prospect in the Featherweight division.

How great would it be for our Macedonian community if he beats Aldo and then later in the future becomes the first ever Macedonian UFC Champion.

Fingers crossed

Welcome to the forum Alex!

J/K.

I agree, it would definitely be good to see him win and move up the ladder. Planning on watching it. I've let my relatives in the states know about him too. My cousin and her husband are/were pretty big UFC fans during the Couture, Iceman and Ortiz era

Alexander won by a decision in a dominating performance against a legend. Title shot coming up next (hopefully)!

Congratulations to Alex. I just wanted to touch on the ethnicity of his mum for a moment. Alex has clearly stated that his mum is Greek and that should be the end of it you would think. However, there are rumours going around that his mum is in fact an Aegean Macedonian from Lerin. I heard that one from a friend today but he admitted he can't confirm it. Interestingly, in what I can only describe as a six degrees of separation moment, it turns out my brother-in-law's half brother, who lives in the Gong, is good mates with Alex Volkanovski. Unfortunately he's not close with him at all so there's no way I can get him to confirm the rumour from his half-brother. Volkanovski doesn't strike me as political either so if his mum is in fact an Aegean Macedonian then it probably wouldn't be a stretch to assume that her "Greekness" could be just a flippant remark because her roots are from Greece.

If itís not the title shot next I think they will give him Zabit, Ortega or Edgar. It all depends if and when Holloway wants to come back down to Featherweight for a title fight.

Zabit is doing well but is beneath Alex in the rankings. Ortega, who is beneath Aldo, suffered a defeat in his last fight against Holloway. And rumour has it that Zabit and Ortega will be fighting each other soon. As for Edgar, he got decked by Ortega last year and has lost to Aldo twice. Alex is on a 7 fight winning streak in the UFC so if they do what's right, he should be next in line for a shot at the title. I'd be surprised (and disappointed) if Holloway doesn't return to featherweight after his recent loss as it's a competitive division. On another note, Conor has been taking subtle shots at both Aldo and Holloway recently, in addition to hinting a possible return. Perhaps a bit of wishful thinking, but how crazy would it be if Alex takes the featherweight crown from Holloway and then matches up against Conor in the near future. Alex has been severely underrated in his last few fights by all sorts of morons and supposed die-hard UFC fans, but the guy is confident, fights like a lion and has relentless energy. He has every chance of becoming champ.

As for his maternal side being Greek, I don't see it as an issue. She couldn't be an anti-Macedonian racist (like many other Greeks) if she married a Macedonian man. And it would be wrong to expect him to disregard his mum's heritage. That said, he doesn't look like a guy that would allow people to insult his Macedonian heritage. And let's face it, given the rabid hatred for Macedonians that many of them espouse, few Greeks (aside from his relatives and friends) are going to support him anyway. The very fact he identifies as Macedonian is enough for those maggots to despise him.

Looks like the UFC aren’t going to do the right thing. In addition to the Ortega vs Zabit fight in July, the same card will apparently feature Holloway vs Edgar. So Alex beats the number 1 contender (who himself has beaten Edgar twice) and they look past him. Unbelievable.

It doesn't make any sense in terms of rankings. Its obviously down to popularity, what else could it be?

Thatís beyond stupid. How does Edgar deserve a title shot over Volkanovski? Volkanovski beat the #1 contender meaning he should be the #1 contender and next in line for a title shot, not Edgar that hasnít even beaten Aldo let alone Holloway. I believe the UFC put Aldo against Volkanovski in Brazil to put everything in Aldoís favour so he could be victorious and get the shot at the title next with his Ďcomeback storyí. They wanted Aldo to win, wasnít to be

Massive upset today with the so-called unified heavyweight champion (Joshua) being taken out by a Mexican-American (Ruiz) who nobody thought had a chance. Some are comparing it Tyson-Douglas. Honestly, serves Joshua right for dodging Deontay Wilder for so long, knowing that the latter had a more than average chance of knocking him into next week. So much for the 'money fight'.
