The next Lightweight title fight will be Islam Makhachev vs Alex Volkanovski, and it will possibly be taking place in Australia.

Volkanovski, who arguably established himself as the most dominant Featherweight of all time, is looking for a new challenge and will be moving up a division.

Standing in his way?

The newly crowned Lightweight champion, Islam Makhachev, who destroyed Charles Oliveira to win the title at UFC 280.

-

Volkanovski has shown a greatly improved striking game over the years, but he has always relied on his grappling to be the deciding factor in this fight.

He'll obviously have a hard time wrestling with Khabib protege Islam Makhachev, who is nearly impossible to take to the ground.

Volkanovski will be stepping into the Octagon against a much-bigger fighter than what he is used to, and it will be interesting to see how he copes.

-

Bookmakers have established Makhachev as the clear favourite to win.

Here are the opening odds from a major US-based sportsbook:

Alex Volkanovski, +255
Islam Makhachev, -305

According to these odds, a successful $100 wager on Volkanovski would yield a total return of $255, while a successful $305 wager on Makhachev would return a total profit of $100.

-

Volkanovski wants to join some pretty elite company by winning belts in two different divisions.

Makhachev, however, is a different beast, and Volkanovski is certainly going to have his hands full.

As mentioned, there is a good chance that this fight takes place in Australia, likely in a stadium.
