Sterling named the favorite in the fight between Volkanovski and Topuria
Aljamain Sterling, former UFC bantamweight champion, named the favorite in the confrontation Alexa Volkanovski, featherweight champion, with Ilia Topuria. Aljamain thinks there will be an upset in this matchup.
“I hate to say this because it feels like I’m going against Volkanovski. But this is not true. All I'm saying is that, given the situation, I think now is the time for a power puncher, a boxer who can grapple but doesn't really use it, like Topuria, to take down someone like Volkanovski... “Sterling said.
Let us remind you that the fight between Volkanovski and Topuria will headline UFC 298, which will take place on February 17. The location of the event is currently unknown.
