Daniel Cormier Reports Fans Have Told Him to Fight Volkan Oezdemir
By FCF Staff
Volkan Oezdemir has been campaigning for a title shot, and it looks like fans have convinced Daniel Cormier that’s the right bout to make.
Oezdemir is coming off back-to-back, KO wins over Jimi Manuwa and Misha Cirkunov, and is currently ranked #2 in the light-heavyweight division. Alexander Gustafsson, who lost to Cormier by a razor thin, split decision in 2015, is ranked #1, and many believe he could be booked for a rematch.
Recently the champion “DC”, however, tweeted out the comment below:
@volkan_oezdemir I asked and people wanna see u and I scrap. So you got it man! Let me figure a date now. They chose u bud! Congrats
