Chiesa: "Fight with Makhachev is a win-win option for Volkanovski"
American UFC lightweight Michael Chiesa shared his thoughts on the duel between the champion of his division Islam Makhachev and the owner of the featherweight belt Alexander Volkanovski.
“If Volkanovski defeats Makhachev, he will become the greatest fighter of our time. He single-handedly leads the featherweight division. If he comes out and wins against Makhachev, then he can be called the best guy you have seen in the octagon. This is clear.
Alex's victory over Islam will be a real feat. But even if he loses, who cares? He will return to his weight and continue to dominate there. So the fight against Makhachev is a win-win for Volkanovski,” Chiesa quotes MMA Junkie.
Recall that the fight between Makhachev and Volkanovski will headline the UFC 284 tournament, which will be held on the night of February 12 in Perth, Australia.
