Volkanovski Eyes UFC 300, Sets Condition

Ready for UFC 300, with a Lightweight Twist

Despite a devastating short-notice match outcome last time, featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski is ready to step up for the monumental UFC 300 event. However, he has one condition: he will only return in the lightweight division.

This weekend at UFC 298, Volkanovski is set to defend his featherweight title against the undefeated Ilia Topuria. Following a knockout loss to lightweight champion Islam Makhachev last year, Volkanovski aims to silence critics and prove his dominance against Topuria.

Post-UFC 298, Volkanovski desires to stay active, eyeing the lightweight title before retiring. At 35, he acknowledges time is of the essence.

– “I’m more than willing to fight in the main event at UFC 300,” Volkanovski told Sports Illustrated. “It would not be a featherweight match. It has to be a lightweight opponent, and I would gladly accept that.”

– “I was undisciplined in the months before that,” Volkanovski reflected on his rematch with Islam Makhachev. “And you will never see that again. I’m okay with it. Many people talk, saying they’ll fight anyone, anywhere. I know I would do it.”


Volkanovski’s performance this weekend is crucial. Topuria enters his first title match with immense confidence, showcasing impressive technique and power in his previous octagon appearances.
