Oezdemir-Rua The Main Event Of UFC Hamburg
Volkan Oezdemir won’t be fighting on UFC Chile, due to his a run-in with the law, but will be set for UFC Hamburg.
The former light heavyweight title challenger will face off with Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, in the main event of UFC Hamburg on July 22nd.
The Swiss light heavyweight was pulled from the upcoming card in Chile due to his ongoing legal situation, stemming from a third-degree felony battery charge back in August.
Oezdemir’s five-fight win streak came to an end when Daniel Cormier would hand him a second-round TKO at UFC 220.
Across the Octagon is Rua, who has not fought since a third round TKO win over Gian Villante at UFC Fight Night 106, in 2017.
