And speaking to Joe Rogan following the KO he targeted a showdown with another star of the sport – Conor McGregor.

He said: “It’s showtime. It’s time to take the UFC to Spain.”

Topuria continued: “And Conor McGregor, if you still have some balls, I will be waiting for you in Spain.”

During the UFC 298 post-fight press conference, Dana White teased the company could be heading to Spain: “If there’s a venue available for us, we’ll be there”, he said.

What’s more likely is a rematch with the popular Volkanovski who immediately wanted a rematch.
