UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski has opened up about his recent bout against lightweight titleholder Islam Makhachev at UFC 294, held in Abu Dhabi on October 21. The Makhachev-Volkanovski clash headlined the event, with Makhachev securing a first-round technical knockout to defend his lightweight title for the second time.

Volkanovski defended his decision to take on Makhachev, emphasizing his belief in self-challenge and the “big risk, big reward” mindset. He expressed optimism and a pursuit of greatness while acknowledging his recent lack of discipline, a source of minor disappointment, as shared on his YouTube channel.

Their initial encounter transpired at UFC 284 in February 2023, where Makhachev triumphed via unanimous decision. Makhachev, aged 31, boasts an impressive record of 25 victories and a single defeat.

Volkanovski, aged 35, had previously faced Yair Rodriguez at UFC 290 in July 2023, securing a victory through a third-round technical knockout. With a record of 26 wins and three losses, he continues to be a prominent figure in the octagon.
