Many were surprised to see Alexander “The Great” Volkanovski lose to Islam Makhachev at UFC 294. Equally as surprising is the fact that Volkanovski will return to the Octagon at UFC 298 so soon after his recent defeat. Here, we preview UFC 298 and explain how to bet on the action and other MMA and UFC events at Stake.com.
When and Where is UFC 298?

Major Fighters in UFC 298
After his disappointment at being stopped by Islam Makhachev at UFC 294, Alexander Volkanovski is ready to do battle against the undefeated Ilia Topuria at UFC 298. Alexander “the Great” has successfully defended his featherweight title on five previous occasions. He hopes his quick return to the Octagon will be enough to stave off the disappointment of his defeat to Makhachev.
Standing in his way is Topuria, who is coming off the back of a unanimous decision win over Josh Emmett in May, which saw him go 14 bouts undefeated. Many favour the great to return to winning ways against Topuria, but it promises to be a fascinating fight in California. Also confirmed on the card is a welterweight tie between the undefeated Danny Barlow and Yusaka Kinoshita, while Anthony Hernandez will face Ikram Aliskerov in a middleweight clash.
