Volkan's next match became a sensational topic as it will take place only a few months after his last fight.
Coming off through a fabulous victory over Swedish fighter Ilir Latifi in August, his popularity in the world of MMA was at its peak. Ilir Latifi was considered to be a powerhouse of a fighter and having defeated him through a clean knock out, Volkan came to be a man to be watched in the UFC arena.
His main event opponent is also no pushover, Aleksandar is an Austrian striker who has already won his first four bouts in the UFC.
For both fighters, the match is an opportunity to push their career to new horizons. Should Volkan win the fight, he will gain more footing in the 205-pound division and a higher chance at his next fight being one of the top tier fights of the MMA industry.
Is He Married?
No, the mixed martial artist is certainly not married, but previously shared his life with fiancée Stephanie Aponte in Coconut Creek. She could be seen supporting him during training and other events. The pair was even romantically photographed together at one point.
