Volkanovski looked mean and crazy gas tank. #ufc232— Anthony Rocco Martin (@TonyRoccoMartin) December 30, 2018
That 2nd RD reminded me SO MUCH of the Mendes-McGregor fight. Controlling the fight and winning with his wrestling and then hitting a cardio wall. Sucks but also shows the durability of Volkanovski! HUGE WIN! #TheWeeklyScraps #UFC232— Aljamain Sterling (@FunkMaster_UFC) December 30, 2018
