The UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski will defend his title against No. 3 contender Ilia Topuria in the main event. Robert Whittaker, the No. 3 middleweight contender, will compete against No. 6 Paulo Costa in the co-feature event.

The main event of UFC 298 will feature Alexander Volkanoski, the current featherweight champion, defending his title against Ilia Topuria.

With his second attempt at capturing Makhachev’s lightweight belt failing, Volkanovski will mount his sixth defence of the title against 27-year-old Topuria. In the lead-up to the battle, Topuria has shown unrelenting confidence, even wearing a replica championship this week. He is undefeated in his 14-fight career and has won four of his six UFC contests.

The Honda Centre in Anaheim, California is the venue for the event, which is scheduled for this Saturday, February 17. Additionally, the tournament will begin early on Sunday, February 18, due to the time difference in India.

Meanwhile, the top stars in the sport are undoubtedly generating a sizable sum of money for their efforts, even though the UFC still doesn’t pay fighters what they’re worth.

Although projections of the competitors’ potential earnings have been published, the UFC has not formally revealed the purses of the fighters in question.

Topuria, his rival, will presumably make $532,000 in the meanwhile.

He receives a $32,000 incentive payment in addition to his base compensation of $500,000. ‘The Reaper’ is expected to get a guaranteed salary of $321,000 from the co-main event starring Robert Whittaker and Paulo Costa, in addition to $21,000 in incentive bonus.
