How to watch UFC 294: TV channel and live news as Islam Makhachev faces Alexander Volkanovski


Islam Makhachev will defend his UFC lightweight title against Alexander Volkanovski in the main event of UFC 294 this weekend.

The Russian has won 24 of his 25 fights and now aims to defend his belt for the second time against Volkanovski.

He was originally scheduled to face Charles Oliveira, but the Brazilian withdrew due to a cut above his right eye, with “The Great” interfering as he sought revenge.

UFC 294: What was said?

Volkanovski thinks he can beat Makhachev before the bell.

He told MMA Hour: “I think I finished it.

“I think you’re probably going to see one of the most dangerous Volkanovskis you’ve ever seen, simply because I can’t afford to do anything else.

“Stuff that leaves it to the judges. Stuff anything with these. Let’s go ahead and really make a statement.

“Go knock him out?” This is going to be absolutely breathtaking for the whole world.
