UFC 284 results: Valiant Alexander Volkanovski comes up short in a bid to dethrone Islam Makhachev.


Alexander Volkanovski  came up agonisingly  short in his bid to  become a dual-weight champion at UFC 284,  suffering a  narrow  decision loss to Islam Makhachev on Saturday.

Australian Volkanovski entered and exited the RAC Arena in Perth as featherweight champion,  but the  lightweight  title eluded him as 155lbs champion Makhachev secured a unanimous- decision win in enemy territory.

Volkanovski had promised to disprove doubters who had claimed he  was too small to compete with Makhachev, and the 34-year- old did  just that,  standing  almost  every time he  was taken down – as he had  said he would – reversing grappling positions  along the fence, and  staggering the Russian with punches.
