Ilia Topuria outlines the plan for the biggest fight in history with Conor McGregor in Spain

UFC featherweight champion Ilia Topuria has layed out his two-fight plan which includes a mega-fight against Conor McGregor.

Ilia Topuria became the featherweight champion in February with a knockout win over Alexander Volkanovski. It’s expected his next fight will be against Max Holloway, and the champ is hoping to face the Hawaiian at The Sphere in September. If he gets the win there, the plan for the Georgian-Spainard is to face McGregor next.

“I hope to defend the belt with Max Holloway, and then I wanna fight with Conor McGregor, hopefully,” Ilia Topuria told Sportskeeda. “If [McGregor] wins his upcoming fight, that’s the fight I’m looking for. So hopefully it’s gonna happen.”

Although McGregor is fighting at welterweight in his return, Ilia Topuria still thinks the fight could happen. It would be a massive fight, and he believes that would be the fight that could headline a stadium show in Europe.

“It’s gonna be the biggest fight in the in the MMA history,” Topuria said. “The biggest ticketing, the biggest pay-per-view, the biggest everything. We’re gonna have 80,000 people watching the fight in the arena. Yeah. It’s gonna be in the Bernabeu. When the UFC is gonna arrive in Spain, it’s gonna happen in Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.”
