ALEXANDER VOLKANOVSKI controversially retained his featherweight title after a split decision victory over Max Holloway at UFC 251.
Holloway came up short in his last outing against ‘The Great’ in a decision loss at UFC 245 and he suffered a similar fate today on FIght Island.
But many fans were furious at the decision and believe the 28-year-old was robbed in the Middle East.
One wrote: “Max Holloway just got ROBBED.”
Another said: “Rewatch that fight and you will clearly see Max Holloway won the 1st 3 rounds the Judges are a disgrace.”
A fellow viewer tweeted: Absolutely robbed Holloway... What a disgrace.. Volkanovski is a G but no chance he won that..
And another said: “Wow! They gave that fight to Volkanvski.... that was a robbery straight up. Max Holloway had the first 3 rounds easy. What a disgrace.”
Volkanovski said afterwards: “It was a tough fight, he stood there and didn’t take a backwards step.
“But I dug deep in the last round and got the job done. I went for the finish but fortunately got the decision.
“I said no-one can outdo me in there.”
