Injury Forces Oezdemir Out of UFC 227

Volkan Oezdemir has been knocked off of a card for the third time in two months, as an injury will sideline the light heavyweight fighter, per a tweet from ESPN’s Ariel Helwani.

This means Oezdemir will not be competing at UFC 227, where he was scheduled to face a fellow top-ranked contender in Alexander Gustafsson. According to Helwani, a replacement opponent is being sought for Gustafsson but is not guaranteed.

Visa issues prevented Oezdemir from competing at a May UFC event in Chile, as well as the upcoming Fight Night card this weekend in Germany.
