UFC 220: Daniel Cormier & Volkan Oezdemir Trade Jabs Via Social Media
By FCF Staff
Daniel Cormier and Volkan Oezdemir will battle in the Octagon next Saturday at UFC 220, but recently the light-heavyweights traded shots via social media,
After Oezdemir posted an image on Instagram, which showed Cormier down and out on the mat, the champion responded.
Savage post @volkan_oezdemir but since no one knows or follows you I’ll send it out to the public. 3000 likes for such a good post seems like a waste. quick point tho you’re no Jon Jones and I’m no jimmy Manuwa. And I’m a lot better than Kelly Amunson #tapmachine #bum #ufc220 pic.twitter.com/pvGpoHLE2F

Oezdemir is coming off back-to-back, knockout wins over Misha Cirkunov and Jimi Manuwa.
Cormier hasn’t competed since he was knocked out by Jon Jones in July, but that fight was overturned to a no-contest, after the latter tested positive for banned substances. Jones has denied knowingly taking any type of performance enhancing drug.
UFC 220 will be hosted by the TD Garden in Boston.
