UFC 298: Fight card and where to watch as Alexander Volkanovski defends title against Ilia Topuria

The UFC Featherweight championship will be on the line when Alexander Volkanovski squares off with Ilia Topuria.

Four months on from his first-round knockout defeat to Islam Makhachev, Volkanovski returns to action.

The Aussie fell short in his second bid for the lightweight championship, though he remains the man to beat at featherweight.

Topuria is out to dethrone the 35-year-old in what will be his first title bout since joining the UFC in 2020.

The Spaniard boasts an unbeaten 14-0 professional record, with all but two of his bouts ending by stoppage.

Topuria’s last outing went the full five rounds as he picked up a unanimous decision against Josh Emmett back in June.

UFC 298 emanates from Anaheim, California, with preliminary action set to begin at 11pm GMT. The main card is expected to get underway at around 2am GMT.

The main event is scheduled to take place at around 5am GMT.

Fans in the UK can follow preliminary action on UFC Fight Pass and the main card on TNT Sports Box Office.
