Default Alexander Volkov

Just watched Alex Volkov, the HW round robin winner from Bellator or whatever it is. Ok, I admit at FIRST I was SHOCKED at how SKINNY and meek this dude looks. He is 6.7 and looks a bit like a skinny tooth pick.

Now, I am NOT saying I think he is a HIDDEN PHENOM that will never loose a fight for the next 5 years while facing the best as I don't think that is POSSIBLE based on what I saw , lol,

Ok so why the THREAD about him ???

TALK about getting the MOST out of the LEAST, well Volkov does a pretty amazing job at that. His striking is not overly fast and certainly not overly powerful. One could say that his power is average or below. However, it is ACCURATE and his timing is great. Plus he is experienced in angles when striking. Simply stated this dude has had a lot of training with full contact mma type striking and in someways shows how much the STRIKING overall in the MMA has to go to get better as this guy gets the most out of only average abilitys.

How is his TAKE DOWN DEFENSE ? Well not bad. First of all the dudes I saw him fight were not take down demons by any means so right there I cant say with certainty , however, the times I saw him taken down albeit by non ground specialists, but still the times I saw he did pretty well. Nothing much offensive, survival stuff, lol, however, he appears not bad.

So am I fan ? Well not really, I don't think he can go too much farther than he is already with his athletic and physical abilitys. Plus he is in ways pretty boring depending on your mood or what your into. Personally,, I find it really INTERESTING that he has got to where he already is with RELATIVELY limited skills, yes the 6.7 is HUGELY helpful and he uses it to his advantage so well. But still, the guy is a tooth pick.

I think he has a future, but Minakov is going to steamroll him..

Yeah. Was thinking the same thing with the Minakov fight. Be very surprised if Volkov came away with a win. Minakov appears more skillful as well as more powerful than what Volkov has faced yet.
