UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski doesn’t see moving up in weight as ‘that big of a challenge’ as ‘The Great’ prepares to make the leap to 155 in a bid to become the UFC’s next two-division champ.

Volkanovski will have virtually cleared out the featherweight division if he defeats Max Holloway for a third time, so the next logical step would be for the Aussie to move up to lightweight in pursuit of a fresh challenge. And, in all honesty, he thinks it will be much easier than people think.

“I’m moving up soon, I’m going to go out here and do what I plan on doing in f * cking several weeks,” Volkanovski told Ariel Helwani during a recent appearance on The MMA Hour (h / t BJPenn.com). “Everyone is going to be wanting that, it’s going to put me in a lot better position. Whether I need to wait for someone or whatever it is because I still need this division to sort itself out. I will be looking at that division if I don’t have s * it happening in my division, I’m going to have my eyes open. ”

“I don’t look at this as that big of a challenge… I want to go for that double champ status. Believe me, it’s not going to be as hard as some people think it’s going to be to do. ”

Volkanovski will look to defend his featherweight title for the fourth time of his career in a trilogy fight against Holloway at the upcoming UFC 276 PPV on July 2 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
