    2-1 Makhachev.

    Volk had a good round. Good takedown defense and good striking. Good leg kicks and a knockdown near the end of he round.

    3-1 Makhachev.

    Good submission defense from Volk. He is just so physically strong. Makhachev controlled the round and both guys still look fresh.

    2 - 2 for me, Volk is actually doing the work with Makhachev on his back but its the BS scoring of UFC that the rnd would go to Islam

    Volk is built like a tank.

    3-2 Islam closer to 4-1 Islam than Volk win IMO

    but you never know

    Glad I was wrong about Islam dog walking him.

    What a fight.

    I have Makhachev 3-2, but Volk finished the fight strong. Volk is a one of a kind. A great fighter with a great all-around game. His cardio is insane.

    rnd 4 is the crucial rnd for me. Makhachev got the back but other than leg lock around the waist it was Volk with the offense with Makhachev wrapped around him

    Makhachev. The 49 - 46 was BS
