4 months ago By Jhon Woug

Ilia Topuria’s fortune against the undisputed champion of the world, Alexander Volkanovski, in the UFC 298 tournament was akin to the earthquake that has split up the mixed martial arts community into two groups: those who remained indifferent and those who buzzed with surprise. The champion, who was currently in the ring, was defeated by Topuria in the second round, which led to social media reactions such as tweets from fans who are in love with the MMA sport.

Before the freaked-out crowd cheered on eagerly at Anaheim’s Honda Centre, there were different views from the fans and the experts as to who the winner would be. Volkanovski was not the clear favourite, even if he had a stunning record. However, his fight against Ortega was predicted to be his sixth title defense. The only flaw the fighter has is that he has yet to lose a fight, and his determination to win the coveted title remains undiminished.

The art of fighting seemed to exist everywhere, as you could feel the palpable tension as the fighters walked towards the octagon. The fighter’s conviction could be seen through his first steps into the cage, while Volkanovski remained a cautious and unperturbed person in preparation to guard his belt successfully.

Being competitive in the early rounds of the brawl required the contestants to showcase their skill and tact. Tururia decided on a tactical play whereby he intended to stunt Volkanovski’s offence with major leg kicks in order for him to be on the guard. Simultaneously, Volkanovski created clever uses of his well-known agility combined with a variety of fast strikes, which maintained his control over the octagon.

While they fought, the excitement built a bit with every brawl, with the crowds in the stadium and around the world captivated and amazed. There was a very close call in all the stages, but still, Topuria was able to win some Hardcore fans, which is outstanding.

However, the second round saw a major change of momentum as Topuria attacked on opportunities and sent a knockout blow to Volkanovski. This unexpected turn left spectators stunned as they watched the referee intervene promptly to end the bout and award Topuria with his new title: UFC Featherweight Belt Holder.

Topuria’s upset victory ushered in a wave of all sorts of comments on different social media outlets. The critics and contenders loved Twitter and Instagram almost equally, sharing their positions using each of these platforms, and some won with the champion. At the same time, others mounted his defeat’s eulogy but recognised his status as one of the greatest featherweights ever known in the sport.

Based on interviews with some of the leading people from the UFC and UFC fighters and their opinions on the significant event, Now Topuria has received Usman’s blessing to fight him after winning his fight with Collier. Atlas, a commentator, demonstrated his analytical skills in sports by pointing out Volkanovski’s brutal plan on kicks as well as Topuria’s talent to observe the fighting circumstances and maintain balance.

Following the victory of Topuria, people around the world rush to the discussion forums to see that there are conspiracy theories in the form of memes, GIFs, and reaction videos flying all over the place, and they also seem to indicate their support of Topuria. However, others said that the win was on par with some of MMA’s greatest moments but were rather optimistic about the future of the featherweight division.

Topuria’s victory in his first go has created history and proves his calibre as an able boxer. Topuria is a stage name for a dual national, namely a Spanish and a Georgian, who is a male from the country and has currently become the first undefeated 145-pound UFC champion, and this great feat gets even more popular.

The members of the MMA society had to put a brake on their celebrations to reflect on what Topuria’s championship reign symbolised amidst the exuberance and the festivities. The spree started when he successfully ventured into all corners of the 135-pound section of the weight class. He now stakes his undefeated claim. The fans wanted to see who would be the one to unseat the king of this division with the small hands.

With the latest UFC 298, the record-breaking KO knockout of Ilia Topuria to the praise of Alexander Volkanovski has become memorable for world-wide fans and was one of the most memorable events in the history of MMA.
