BJPENN.com Fighter Picks Alexander Volkanovski vs. Korean Zombie:

Stephen Thompson, UFC welterweight: I got Volkanovski, his cardio, and the way he has just gone through Holloway and Ortega have been impressive. I would love for Zombie to become a UFC champ but I have to go with Volkanovski.

Ian Garry, UFC welterweight: Volkanovski. I think Volkanovski. He’s an animal and absolutely brilliant. He has shown he is elite at everything and I think he dominates Zombie.

Terrance McKinney, UFC lightweight: Volkanovski, he’s too well-rounded for Zombie.

Ike Villanueva, UFC light heavyweight: Man, I like where Zombie is at right now and I think working with Cejudo and the boys will change some things for him. Korean Zombie will surprise people and he will get the win.

Tristan Connelly, UFC featherweight: I think Zombie will do it, I think he can pull off the upset. Zombie can edge out a decision.

Dustin Jacoby, UFC light heavyweight: Volkanovski, he’s will be too technical on the feet for Zombie and if the going gets tough he can wrestle him too.

Vinc Pichel, UFC lightweight: I think Volkanovski. He has proven he is the best featherweight.

Gabe Green, UFC welterweight: Volkanovski, he’s too well-rounded for Zombie. They should’ve waited for Holloway to be healthy.

Danny Sabatello, Bellator bantamweight: Dude, I don’t know but entering this fight everyone seems to think Volkanovski is untouchable. Max arguably beat him the second time, Ortega dropped him and nearly submitted him. I think Korean Zombie has the tools to pull off the upset.
