Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight contenders Volkan Oezdemir and Misha Cirkunov will collide later today (Sun., May 28, 2017) at UFC Fight Night 109 inside Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.
Just a few months back, Oezdemir (13-1) was nearly a complete unknown to most American fans. However, a short-notice win over Ovince Saint Preux at the start of the year shot him immediately into the Top 10 ... and he’s received another big match up as a result.
Cirkunov (13-2) has proven to be a very bad man. He’s also the high-quality prospect for which the 205 pound-division has been looking, blitzing through four straight foes and earned a spot in the rankings quickly.
Check out their fight video preview embedded above.
