City kickboxing fighters just very good strategically. Remember Adesanya’s fights against Silva or Romero – he did just enough to beat them, getting the job done is a priority.
Hooker goes to wars instead of fighting the same way and that’s why he has his losses. Dan actually admitted it himself that he needs to fight more like Volk and Izzy.
So to comeback to the point, Volk is doing what is necessary to win the fight. I do think second fight was extremely close and Holloway possibly did enough. But even then, it was impressive to me that Volk was able to adjust in the middle of the second fight with Max and he did pull it off in the end.
