Alexander Volkanovski, born on September 29, 1988, is an Australian mixed martial artist who competes in the Featherweight division in the UFC.

He is currently the No. 1 MMA pound-for-pound fighter of his division class.

Volkanovski is the defending UFC Featherweight Champion, having taken the title from Max Holloway in the UFC 245 (December 2019).

Since then, he has defended his championship in four bouts against Holloway (two times), Brian Ortega & Jung Chan-sung.

The New South Wales native was not into the MMA from early on.

Rather, he was an avid fan of wrestling and had already won a national title twice at 12. But he gave up wrestling at 14 and tried his hands on a different sport, rugby.

However, after playing rugby semi-professionally, Alexander pursued a career in MMA almost towards the end of 2011.

After several amateur fights, the UFC eventually signed him, and made his promotional debut on November 26, 2016.
