Topuria attracted attention when he challenged Conor McGregor to a bout at Spain’s storied Santiago Bernabeu stadium following his victory at UFC 298.

The emerging star in the UFC featherweight class, Ilia Topuria, has targeted some of the top fighters in the business for upcoming bouts. 

During a pre-fight press conference, Topuria boldly declared, “I think I would put Conor McGregor, that’s the fight that I would make at the Santiago Bernabeu.” His ambition was met with enthusiasm by UFC CEO Dana White, who confirmed plans for an event in Spain but remained tight-lipped about potential matchups.

In a recent update, Topuria revealed his eagerness to compete on Spanish soil, listing Sean O’Malley, Max Holloway, and Conor McGregor as his preferred opponents. Interestingly, both Holloway and McGregor boast former featherweight titles, while O’Malley currently holds the bantamweight title, adding an extra layer of intrigue to Topuria’s potential matchups.

Former UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson has advised caution over a prospective rematch between Topuria and Alexander Volkanovski, who was defeated by Topuria in their previous meeting, while the MMA world anxiously awaits Topuria’s next move. 

Johnson emphasized Topuria’s incredible strength and mentioned that Volkanovski’s vulnerability to knockouts would present serious dangers in a rematch. Johnson’s observations highlight the careful balancing act Volkanovski must do as he considers his options, weighing caution against ambition. 

With Topuria’s star on the rise and his reputation as a dangerous opponent growing, Volkanovski must carefully weigh the potential rewards against the inherent risks of facing such a formidable challenger again.

In the ever-evolving landscape of MMA, Ilia Topuria stands as a formidable force, ready to take on the best in the world. 

Whether it’s a showdown with McGregor under the bright lights of Santiago Bernabeu or a rematch with Volkanovski, Topuria’s journey promises to be one filled with excitement and anticipation for fans around the globe.
