UFC Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski stated that he would like to fight again with Islam Makhachev at UFC 294, which will take place on October 21 in Abu Dhabi.

Recall that in February, the Australian made an unsuccessful attempt to take away the lightweight title from Makhachev, losing by unanimous decision.

“We must meet again. I want to stay active and will not just wait for a rematch, although I know that I could get it. I believe that a revenge between us should definitely take place. Would I agree to fight him in Abu Dhabi? Yes, I'm ready to fight anyone, anywhere," Volkanovski said in an interview with TheMacLife YouTube channel.

Note that on July 8, at the UFC 290 tournament, Volkanovski will defend his belt from the encroachments of the holder of the interim title, Yair Rodriguez. The show will take place in Las Vegas.
