Recently Daniel Cormier relayed to Volkan Oezdemir that he’s going to approach the UFC about having them fight, and not surprisingly, the light-heavyweight’s pretty happy about it.
Cormier used social media to ask fans who they want to see him fight next. Well, apparently they told “DC” they want him to scrap Oezdemir, and he proceeded to inform / congratulate “No Time” with the news.
Well, Bloody Elbow reached out to Oezdemir for a follow up comment, and the heavy handed fighter said this:
“Since my debut into the UFC my goal was to climb the ranks in no time,” Oezdemir wrote. “I feel blessed to be called out by the champion while the number one contender didn’t respond to me.”
Now it will be interesting to see if the UFC’s on board with the match-up. Until recently, the consensus was that the aforementioned #1 contender, Alexander Gustafsson, would be next for Cormier.
