Ilia Topuria’s octagon interview

“I feel so happy right now. They are gonna tell you that you cannot do it, they are gonna knock you down and doubt you, but guess what? The only person you need to listen to is yourself.

Just trust yourself, work tirelessly, have faith, and everything is possible. Look at me now”.

Ilia Topruia on accurately predicting a second-round finish

“I just know my skills; I worked so hard for this one. It was knowing that one day I will become the UFC world champion.

Guys, it doesn’t matter where you are coming from if you know where you are going. It’s much more important what’s in front of you than what’s behind you. Dana, Hunter, it's show time. It’s time to take UFC to Spain and Conor McGregor.

If you still have some * I will be waiting for you in Spain”.

“Well done to him, he called me. I was going to start working everything, and he got me so credit to him.

Obviously, he’s a hard hitter. We knew that going in, he wasn’t meant to land like that, but he did, so credit to him. Obviously, I have been a champion in this featherweight division for a long time; he keeps mentioning Spain. Maybe we do a rematch over there in Spain”.
