“You’re running bro – you don’t need it,” the Australian wrote on the social network.
“Then accept the fight!”, The Russian answered the potential enemy.
Ten days ago, Alex Volkanovski successfully unified the interim and current UFC featherweight titles with a third-round TKO finish on Yair Rodriguez, and the Australian underwent surgery on his left arm earlier this week. At the same time, sportswriter Ariel Helwani, who spoke with manager Volkanovski, reports that the Australian fighter will take six weeks to fully recover, after which he will be ready to begin a full-fledged training camp.
Recall that Islam Makhachev, who won the vacant UFC lightweight championship belt last fall in a confrontation with Charles Oliveira, successfully defended his title in February, defeating Alex Volkanovski by unanimous decision after five rounds. The Russian plans to fight his next fight on October 21 at UFC 294 in Abu Dhabi, but the question of his opponent is still open.
