Alex Volkanovski reacted to the words of Islam Makhachev

The reigning UFC Featherweight Champion, Alexander Volkanovski, did not ignore the statement of Islam Makhachev, who turned to potential opponents with the question of who will challenge him next.

“Let’s repeat and give people what they want,” the Australian wrote on the social network, quoting the Russian.

On February 11, at UFC 284 in Perth, Alex Volkanovski made an unsuccessful attempt to take away the UFC lightweight championship belt from Islam Makhachev, losing to the Russian by unanimous decision after five rounds, after which he stated that he considers the judge’s verdict biased, and also accused the opponent of violating anti-doping rules.

At the same time, Volkanovski’s coach, Eugene Bairman, announced that he considers the next logical step not a rematch with Makhachev, but a unification fight with the Mexican Yair Rodriguez, who, as part of the Australian numbered event, won the interim UFC featherweight title, finishing with a triangle choke of the American Josh Emmett.
