Athletistic/ Boxing. Former UFC champion in two weight categories Daniel Cormier spoke about the upcoming rematch between Russian fighter Islam Makhachev and Australian Alex Volkanovski.

“If anyone is ready for a five-round fight in 10 days, it’s Volkanovski. Alex is the number one fighter in the world. He constantly proves that in the featherweight division, no one can compete with him. I I think Volkanovski has a lot of confidence after this.” what he did in the first fight against Makhachev.

It seems to me that in the first fight Makhachev underestimated Alex. He took it a little lightly, apparently hoping that he would finish him off. And he was surprised how good Volkanovski was. I don’t think it will happen again in the rematch,” Cormier said.

The rematch between Makhachev and Volkanovski will take place on October 21 at UFC 294.
