In their previous encounter, Makhachev defeated Volkanovski in a unanimous points decision after five rounds. The rematch comes sooner than many had anticipated. Makhachev, who has an eight-year winning streak, is favored to win again. Known for his skills in Sambo, the Russian fighter also demonstrated strong striking abilities in their first match.
Alexander Volkanovski, who usually competes in the Featherweight division, held his own against Makhachev in their initial bout. He described the 25-minute fight as “fun” and dispelled any notion that he would be dominated by the heavier opponent.
The upcoming fight offers Volkanovski a chance to join a select group of fighters who have held UFC titles in multiple weight classes simultaneously. To date, only Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier, Amanda Nunes, and Henry Cejudo have achieved this feat. Whether the Australian fighter will join this elite list remains to be seen.
