UFC 303 was set to be headlined by a highly-anticipated matchup between Michael Chandler and Conor McGregor. Nonetheless, the Irishman suffered an injury and was compelled out of the bout and the UFC reportedly seemed for brand new fights or potential individuals to switch McGregor.

Throughout that point, Volkanovski says he informed the UFC he would exchange McGregor and combat Chandler, or combat on the cardboard towards whoever it they wanted.

“I did put my hand up, I stated ‘Do you want a man?’ All of us heard the whispers such as you guys did. He didn’t present as much as the press convention, heard whispers they have been in search of somebody to possibly exchange. So I used to be like, ‘Hey, in the event you want somebody, you recognize a man,’ I did put my hand up. Clearly seen that some individuals put that up, so it bought on the market. Some individuals assume I’m mad, however I’m again into coaching now, and I’m excited to get again in there. That’s all it takes, just a bit factor like that, and I put my hand up.  However, it wasn’t me. I didn’t get the decision again,” Alexander Volkanovski said on his YouTube channel.

“The UFC have been like, ‘Oh no.’ They have been sitting saying, ‘You’re a savage, however we’ll let you recognize if we’d like you’ sort of factor. They knew I stated earlier within the 12 months they usually stated, ‘Look, let’s simply have a little bit of a break.’ So, they have been clearly respecting that, so good on them for that. Although I saved reminding them, on a regular basis I’m like, ‘I’m being critical, let me know.’ However they have been sticking to their weapons and I assume taking care of me. You bought to provide them respect for that, however I did wish to save the day,” Volkanovski added.

As Alexander Volkanovski says, the UFC opted to maintain him on the sidelines so he may take day off and heal as he stated he would following the KO loss to Ilia Topuria. However, Volkanovski says he’s again in coaching so he might return to the Octagon quickly.

Alexander Volkanovski is 26-4 and coming off the KO loss to Topuria to lose his featherweight title. Earlier than that, he suffered a KO loss to Islam Makhachev for the light-weight title.
