UFC 290: So, what’s the word?

Volkanovski recognizes that he must tread carefully in his title defense against Rodriguez, the current interim featherweight champion and a formidable opponent. 


According to him, “I’m looking at him as a serious challenger, like he’s a dangerous fighter. 


He’s definitely in the top tier of combatants I’ve faced. You can’t take him lightly when he boasts of unpredictability, knockout power, and a plethora of weapons. 


Do I feel assured in saying that I am the best fighter on the planet? Sure, but I know better than to underestimate this guy. In his recent bouts, he has been impressively dominant.
