The best fighter in the world, regardless of weight category, Alexander Volkanovski, reacted to the statement of Charles Oliveira, who promised to fight the Australian twice after defeating Islam Makhachev – at UFC 283 in Rio de Janeiro and three weeks later at UFC 284 in Perth.
“Let’s do it,” the reigning UFC Featherweight Champion told MMAJunkie. “If anyone can do it, it’s me. If he’s ready, no problem. I’m not sure it makes a lot of sense, but I’m ready for anything and I’ll be happy to do it.”
Volkanovski also commented on the words of Makhachev, who made it clear that in the event of his victory, he was also ready to go to Australia.
“It’s safe to say that my next fight will be for the lightweight title. Let’s see how things turn out”
Recall that the fight for the vacant UFC lightweight championship belt between Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev on October 22 will head the UFC 280 tournament in Abu Dhabi, and Alex Volkanovski is a reserve participant in this confrontation.
