Alexander Volkanovski and Ilia Topuria will compete in the main event. Despite being only eight years younger than Volkanovski, Topuria, the undefeated challenger, played the part of the underdog challenger by deftly stealing the UFC title belt from the table in front of him at the press conference, which led to a little altercation.

 

Although Topuria is extremely certain that he will end Volkanovski’s four-year dominance at 145 pounds on Saturday night at Honda Centre, the champion is not prepared to retire anytime soon.
