The featherweight division hasn’t seen a new champion in a very long time owing to Volkanovski consistent performances; he never failed to prove why he’s still the king of the featherweight division.

However, many fans and MMA experts believe the potential title challenger Ilia Topuria may do the undone and snatch everything away from Alexander Volkanovski. Henry Cejudo also believes that Ilia Topuria will win against Alexander Volkanovski.

It is unquestionably promises to be an intense title defense, UFC fans should cross their fingers and hope for the UFC to announce that match soon.

In a recent YouTube video, Henry Cejudo explained why he thinks Ilia Topuria will win against Alexander Volkanovksi.

“I am going for Ilia Topuria, but it’s hard to go against a guy who is very well rounded, who has fought that level of competition that Alexander Volkanovski has,” Cejudo said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.

“There’s one thing I would say that would make me bet the house on a guy like Ilia Topuria because I am going for him, if he could protect his leg kicks, and if he can bring back some of that Georgian wrestling into this fight, I could see Ilia Topuria not only just beating him but actually dominating in this fight”.

Cejudo further said: “Or I go back to him being put in the same position against Islam Makhachev, when Islam took his back and literally he couldn’t get out. That was round after round. I’m just letting you know that he likes kind of playing with fire.

So, I feel like when Alexander does maybe take an L, it might be just because of submission or potentially a knockout”.
