UFC 221 video highlights: Alexander Volkanovski vs. Jeremy Kennedy – with gunshot-like ground and pound

11 February 2018

Alexander Volkanovski’s UFC 221 finish looked pretty brutal – and it didn’t sound any better.

Fighting in his home country, Volkanovski (17-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) delivered featherweight Jeremy Kennedy (11-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) his first career loss.

The preliminary-card fight, which aired on FS1 prior to the pay-per-view main card at Perth Arena in Australia, moved Volkanovski to 4-0 with the UFC and pushed his overall winning streak to 14 fights.

Ground and pound was the pivotal weapon for Volkanovski, who delivered audibly powerful punches and elbows that commentator Jon Anik likened to gunshots (via Twitter):

After the victory, Volkanovski called out all of the “bullies” in the featherweight division. Bully or not, he’s likely to get a step up in competition in his next bout.
