UFC top heavyweight Volkan Oezdemir is ready to knock out the promotion debutant, former RIZIN champion Jiri Prohascu, to take another step to the second chance to win the champion title:
“Jiri is not in the rankings, but the fight with him will bring me a lot of hips. I want to win a loud victory by knockout. By gaining the hype, you’re getting closer to the big battles. The big announcement in this fight will bring me closer to the fight for the title. We need to wait for the situation with John Jones to be resolved – Reyes, Blachovich, and Tiago Santos are now ready to fight for the temporary title. A lot of things are happening and we don’t know how it will end up. But if I win well, I’ll be closer to fighting for the title again,” Volkan said.
Recall that the bout between Volkan Oezdemir and Jiri Prohaska will be held July 11 at the UFC 251 tournament in Abu Dhabi.
