Will Ilia Topuria Be The Toughest Competitor Of Volkanovski?

UFC 298 will bring an opportunity to Ilia Topuria, who will try to claim the featherweight throne.

UFC 298 will mark the return of featherweight kingpin Alexander Volkanovski, who will try to give a great start to his year 2024 by defending his featherweight title one more time. Alexander Volkanovski will defend his title against the German fighter Ilia Topuria, who has remained undefeated in his professional career with a perfect (14-0) record. Ilia Topuria climbed up the ranking ladder after defeating Bryce Mitchell at UFC 282 with a second round submission, and then a unanimous decision victory over Josh Emmett made him a worthy contender to get a title shot, and that’s what he got.

Alexander Volkanovski and Ilia Topuria will headline UFC 298, which is scheduled for February 18th, 2024, at the Honda Center in California, United States. Ilia Topuria has so far proved himself to be the most complete fighter in the featherweight division, and as a man with an Iron Chin, he is as good with striking as he is on the ground. His comeback win against Jai Herbert, whom he defeated with a powerful right hand that didn’t even require follow-up shots, was phenomenal. On the other hand

Alexander Volkanovski lost his last fight against the lightweight champion Islam Makhachev, where the former accepted the fight at 2 weeks’ notice. In their last fight, Islam and Volkanovski had a close fight. That’s what made the second fight between these two fighters much more exciting, but Islam Makhachev ended the thrill in the very first round by knocking out Volkanovski unde2 minutes, establishing himself as the number one pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC.

Volkanovski and Topuria have been going back and forth against each other since the announcement of the fight, and they both think that it would be an easy fight, but only time will tell whether Topuria, with his ruthless power, strikes first or Volkanovski’s offense maintains him at the top on February 18th, 2024.
