UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski has made it clear that he’s not shying away from a showdown with undefeated Spanish prospect Iliya Topuria, despite his recent loss to Russian powerhouse Islam Makhachev, according to a report from Sports.kz citing Fight.ru.

Volkanovski shared his determination on his YouTube channel, emphasizing his readiness to stay active and return to the octagon. He’s undeterred by those suggesting he take a break and insists he feels at his best when he’s focused on his fighting career. He has consulted with medical professionals to ensure he’s in good health and is committed to facing Topuria in January. Volkanovski believes this fight will bring out the best in him and is appreciative of the support he has received.

Recall that there were previous reports of Volkanovski’s upcoming clash with Iliya Topuria at UFC 297 in January. In a bold move, Volkanovski accepted a last-minute bout against UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev in October, where he was defeated by knockout in the first round during the UFC 294 main event.
