How to Watch UFC 298: Volkanovski vs. Topuria Live, Start Time, Fight Card, TV Channel & More




UFC 298

UFC 298 takes place this weekend on Saturday, February 17, at 10:00 PM ET, with Alexander Volkanovsky defending his featherweight title against Ilya Topuria in the main event.

Volkanovski defeated Yar Rodriguez in July for a fifth successful title defense but was dominated by Islam Makhachev on either side of that stoppage win.

While competing for the lightweight title, Volkanovsky lost to Makhachev in February and was knocked out in the first round in October. Given the brutal nature of that second result, when Volkanovski stepped up on late notice, some fans feared the Australian as he prepared to face Topuria.

The undefeated Topuria, 27, is eight years younger than Volkanovski and has finished with 12 of 14 victories. The Georgian, who fights out of Spain, has a well-rounded game and seemingly the ability to threaten the champion.

UFC 298: Volkanovski Bio

Alexander Volkanovsky, affectionately known as “The Great,” is not your average fighter. Born in Wollongong, Australia, Volkanovski’s athletic prowess was evident early. But at 14, he switched gears, following a path to semi-professional rugby league.

During his rugby off-season, Volkanovski discovered MMA as a way to stay fit. He found a natural talent for the sport, transforming from a robust 96kg rugby player to a lean, mean 65.8kg fighting machine.

UFC 298: Topuria Bio

Ilya Topuria, a name that has been echoing through the halls of the UFC like a growing storm, is more than just a fighter. But before the crowd’s roar and the flash of the spotlight, Topuria’s journey began in the Las Vegas Octagon.

Born in Halle, Germany, to Georgian parents, Topuria’s first brush with combat came at a young age through Greco-Roman wrestling. This foundation of grappling would prove invaluable, shaping his fighting style and laying the foundation for his future dominance. At just 15 years old, he moved to Alicante, Spain, where the seeds of his MMA career were planted.
