Prediction: correct Volkanovski   wrong KO/TKO   wrong Round 3  

Volkanovski is extremely similar in style to Hirota. Short, strong fairly linear fighter who uses strength and a good wrestling POWERFUL top game. I think Volk is more athletic and stronger than Hirota, and that will make all the difference in this fight. Volk powers through for a TD (probs against cage), dumps him on his ass and begins wailing on him. Odds for Volkanovksi KO are +200 which is crazy to me, I see KO by volk as most likely scenario, probably the same as his debut. Him leaning on the guy in top position hammering blows in until ref stops it.
