Former UFC champion Daniel Cormier has spoken about his expectations for a lightweight title fight between Russian Islam Makhachev and Australian Alex Volkanovski. Their fight will take place at UFC 284 in Australia. MMA Fight Night is scheduled for February 12, 2023.

“Islam will be a bit heavier than the opponent. But you know, Alex didn’t look like a little boy when he walked into the octagon and challenged Makhachev.

Yes, he is smaller, so it looks like Makhachev is fit, but Volkanovsk is not. But I don’t think Alex will look short in Islam.

Islam Makhachev said when he will end his career

Volkanovski has more talent and skill than anyone. This is the most serious challenge, because he wants to become a double champion. It will be tough, but I think these two guys are going to show a fantastic fight,” Cormier quoted MMA Junkie.
