2018-01-20, good fight between Daniel Cormier and Volkan Oezdemir
: it gets three stars (UFC Performance of the Night).
The former Strikeforce Hw and current Ufc light-Hw champion Daniel Cormier entered this fight with a pro mma record of 19-1-0 (63% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.1 light heavyweight in the world. ‘DC’ suffered his only loss against Jon Jones in their first fight in 2015 (=Jones vs Cormier I), since then he has won four bouts beating Anderson Silva in 2016 (=Cormier vs Silva) and Anthony Johnson in 2017 (=Cormier vs Johnson 2). After this fight he has faced Jon Jones for the second time losing via KO, but then the result was overturned in a no-contest since ‘Bones’ tested positive for Turinabol (=Cormier vs Jones 2).
His opponent, Volkan Oezdemir, has a record of 15-1-0 (80% finishing rate) and he entered as the No.6 in the same weight class. He suffered his only loss when he faced Kelly Anundson in 2014, since then he has won five bouts defeating Ovince Saint Preux (=St Preux vs Oezdemir), Misha Cirkunov (=Cirkunov vs Oezdemir) and Jimi Manuwa in 2017 (=Manuwa vs Oezdemir). Cormier vs Oezdemir is valid for the Ufc light-heavyweight title; undercard of Stipe Miocic vs Francis Ngannou – UFC 220. Watch the video and rate this fight!
