Makhachev before the fight with Volkanovski: “Alex only wants money.  As long as I’m here, he won’t be a champion.”

Russian fighter Islam Makhachev said that the Australian Alexandra Volkanovski I’m only interested in money at UFC 294 in Abu Dhabi.

The lightweight title fight will take place on October 21. Initially, Makhachev’s opponent was supposed to be Charles Oliveira, but the Brazilian left the fight due to injury.

– Everyone knows that Alex only wants money. What is he putting into this fight? He only comes here to make money, and I have a belt on the line, a winning streak. As long as I’m here, he’ll never be the champion of my weight class. We have many other opponents, they are all ready to fight me, but I gave Alex a chance. He will never want a premature result, he will fight all five rounds. “We will show the best battle,” Makhachev said at a press conference.

For the 31-year-old Russian, this is the second defense of the championship belt, which he won last October by defeating Oliveira. In February, Makhachev defeated Volkanovski by unanimous decision.
