It’s all fun and games until the champ is standing across the cage from you.
Next in line for the UFC light-heavyweight title is Volkan Oezdemir (12-1). Who is Volkan Oezdemir, you may ask. Oezdemir is currently on a 5-fight winning streak and 3-0 in the UFC, with his most recent fight being a knockout win over Jimi Manuwa at UFC 214. Although an impressive win, Jimi Manuwa is no Daniel Cormier, and DC has made that clear.
Oezdemir took to his Instagram to post a photo of him finishing Manuwa, and compared it to when Jon Jones defeated DC; both images show the defeated opponent stretched out on the canvas. DC took exception to the post, and made a post of his own, in only a way DC knows how to.
Savage post @volkan_oezdemir but since no one knows or follows you I’ll send it out to the public. 3000 likes for such a good post seems like a waste. quick point tho you’re no Jon Jones and I’m no jimmy Manuwa. And I’m a lot better than Kelly Amunson #tapmachine #bum #ufc220 pic.twitter.com/pvGpoHLE2F
