    I don’t see him subbing Volk so my answer is a big fat no. Even with his improved striking, he’s nowhere near the technical level of Max or Volk on the feet. I love KZ, but beating KZ isn’t even close to beating Volk. He certainly will never beat Max so Brett saying he could be the best featherweight is an actual joke.

    c'mon Meagan, dont regurgitate that "they don't like each other b.s. They already acknowledged their was an attempt to create some drama in an interview. It detracts from people taking you seriously despite your obvious professionalism. This one is for true fight fans, and I'm a little concerned for Brian in this one. But he's still got lots of fights ahead of him, and great to watch in general.✌💛

      @Rossi Courvosi Bro, watch the fight again, the third one was the close round, and the stats say that Volk outlanded Max and landed the harder shots by far, i’m a big Max Holloway fan but the numbers don’t lie. I do think Max deserves another title shot but it gets weird when he’s lost twice to the champion.

When really he trained with world renowned and respected coaches
