“He (Topuria) likes to talk. So it's easy to motivate yourself to do this, right? I don't need to do anything to increase the hype for the fight. Let him talk and I'll go for a walk on the 17th. Work, give him a little humility and show the world again, remind them that he still has a long way to the top. I’ll show him that,” said the Australian.

Asked about his prediction for the outcome of the duel, Volkanovski assured that he will make Topuria 'leave in shame' and pointed to the second round as the decisive one for the fight.


“My prediction? I'll teach you a good lesson. He will leave embarrassed, he will swallow some of his words and this may be the beginning of his journey. He is young and confident. I'll give him a little humility and he'll be able to bounce back after I give him a good beating. Round two, I think. I think I'll break it on the first one. I'm not saying it's going to be an easy fight, but I think that given his confidence, he hasn't had the opportunity to prove it yet. I try it every time I step into the gym. I push myself to the limit. I don't know if he does the same. He doesn't act like he does, so I'm going to put pressure on him and I think I'm going to break him on the first one and get the stoppage shortly after that.”
