Alexander Volkanovski talks about fighting Conor McGregor at 145

Conor McGregor has achieved noteworthy success during the course of his UFC journey; no one can ever forget the iconic featherweight clash between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor. It took less than 13 seconds for Conor McGregor to finish Jose Aldo, and along with the victory, he claimed the position of the featherweight champion of the world.

Conor McGregor competed against many opponents in the featherweight division, except one opponent Alexander Volkanovski. It would undeniably be one of the greatest matches witnessed by fans all around the world. It’s still a possibility for the future; Volkanovski could jump up to the lightweight division again; however, McGregor needs to secure a few convincing victories before he can do something fancy.

Recently in an interview with The MMA Fan Podcast, the current UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski reflects on not fighting Conor McGregor and is open to fighting the Mystic Mac in the future.

Moreover, he explains how it will not just be for the money. “It’s pretty easy for me in saying Conor McGregor because he was in featherweight,” Volkanovski said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “He was a featherweight.

We’ve got to remember the champions I’ve beat. I’ve beat every other champion in the featherweight division. “The only champ I haven’t fought in the featherweight division is Conor McGregor. Conor McGregor in his prime in featherweight division would obviously be the all-time – I’m sure everyone would want to see that right now.

If we could make that happen right now, somehow get prime Conor vs. prime Volk, it would be pretty special”. “Everyone’s going to talk about the money, and that’s why you only want that fight,” Volkanovski further said.

“Yeah, of course there’s money in it, the circus around it, the hype, all of that. But you talk about legacy, you know then I would have beaten every featherweight champion, and I plan on having the most defenses as well”.
