Ilia Topuria is coming off his fifth UFC career win (13th overall) against Bryce Mitchell in one of the bouts featured in UFC 282. He was able to dominate the previously unbeaten Mitchell and eventually submitted him in the second round via an Arm-Triangle choke. Because of his unscathed record, he is slowly becoming a regular in online sports betting through the UFC odds.
“El Matador” is also one of the few active UFC fighters who are still undefeated in their MMA careers. This exciting fighting style of dominating his opponents both on the feet and on the ground has earned the Georgian thousands of fans. But when will he return to fight again? And who will he face next?
When is Ilia Topuria’s Next Fight?
Ilia Topuria’s next opponent is No. 5-ranked featherweight contender Josh Emmett, who aims to get back on the winning column after suffering a second-round submission to Yair Rodriguez in their UFC Interim Featherweight title fight in February 2023. Topuria and Emmett are set to headline the fight night on June 17, 2023, inside APEX Center in Las Vegas.
