Ilia Topuria on fighting Alexander Volkanovski

Recently on UFC Espanol, Ilia Topuria made predictions for his fight with Alexander Volkanovski and backed his prediction with a strong explanation.

“I see myself finishing him in the first round – knockout,” Topuria said, as quoted by “It’s most likely going to be a knockout unless he dives for my legs. I’m going to put his lights out.

I’m part of the new generation of MMA, I bring an evolved style in all areas of the sport: on the feet, in the wrestling, in the grappling. I consider myself a far more complete and effective finisher than Volkanovski.

The experience is on his side, but the young blood is on my side. This is my moment. God’s timing is perfect, and He’s prepared me for this moment. There won’t be any failure. I’m not going to say it’s been the toughest camp because every camp we do is always hard, but I will say it’s been the most professional camp I’ve ever done, we’ve done a deep analysis on my opponent, and we’re prepared for the fight”.
