That as one heck of a co-main event between Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway for the Featherweight title during UFC 251 Saturday night.

For a while, it looked like Holloway exacted revenge with a split decision victory over Volkanovski. That’s until the decision went in the latter’s direction via the very same split decision.

Holloway figured he had recaptured the belt after the bell sounded in Round 5. He won two of the rounds in resounding fashion.

Most people watching the fight agreed and chimed in after the controversial decision.
