Featherweight Title Fight : Ilia Topuria vs. Alexander Volkanovski

What’s Next?

Ilia Topuria’s Next Opponent: Movsar Evloev

Following his impressive victory over Volkanovski, Topuria’s next challenge should come from Movsar Evloev. Evloev has been on a winning streak and remains undefeated in the Octagon. His recent dominant win over Arnold Allen proves that he has what it takes to challenge Topuria for the Featherweight title.

Robert Whittaker’s Next Opponent: Khamzat Chimaev

Whittaker’s dominant performance against Costa solidifies his position as a top Middleweight contender. While Israel Adesanya is next in line for a title shot, Whittaker could face Khamzat Chimaev in the meantime. Chimaev has been eager to prove himself and a win over Whittaker would propel him towards a title opportunity.

Merab Dvalishvili’s Next Opponent: O’Malley vs. Vera Winner

Dvalishvili’s win over Cejudo puts him in line for a title shot. With Sean O’Malley set to defend his belt against Marlon Vera, the winner of that fight should be Dvalishvili’s next opponent. If both fighters come out injury-free, we can expect the title fight to take place in the summer or early fall.

Ian Machado Garry’s Next Opponent: Sean Brady

Garry’s impressive win over Geoff Neal improves his undefeated record to 14-0. He is now in a prime position to move up in the rankings. While a fight against Vicente Luque was previously scheduled, Garry may look to face Sean Brady, who currently holds the No. 6 spot in the rankings.

Anthony Hernandez’s Next Opponent: Ikram Aliskerov

Hernandez’s submission victory over Roman Kopylov marks his fifth consecutive win. With Aliskerov on a seven-fight win streak and Hernandez’s impressive run, it only makes sense to re-book their fight as soon as possible.
