Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is closing in on the UFC 220 pay-per-view (PPV) event, set to go down later tonight (Sat., Jan. 20, 2018) inside TD Garden Arena in Boston, Mass., featuring a light heavyweight co-headliner between Daniel Cormier (champion) and Volkan Oezdemir (challenger).
Cormier (19-1, 1 NC) was re-gifted the 205-pound strap when Jon Jones flunked his UFC 214 drug test, taking away his knockout win and sending him to the sidelines for an undetermined amount of time.
Oezdemir (15-1), meanwhile, is 3-0 since crossing over from the regional circuit and recently notched back-to-back knockout wins over Misha Cirkunov and Jimi Manuwa, the latter of which sent him to the top of the official rankings.
