Oezdemir Promises Gustaffson Wouldn’t Make it Out of the First Round With Him

The nickname that Volkan Oezdemir wears like a badge of honor couldn’t be more appropriate.

Mr. ‘No Time’ has spent six minutes and 10 seconds fighting in the UFC. That amount of time is three fights combined.…

“I THINK A FIGHT WITH [DANIEL CORMIER] OR A FIGHT WITH [ALEXANDER] GUSTAFSSON ARE MOST LIKELY NEXT, BUT I THINK THE BEST OPTION FOR ME IS TO FIGHT GUSTAFSSON. THE SITUATION ISN’T VERY CLEAR WITH THE BELT, SO IN THE MEAN TIME I WOULD LIKE TO FIGHT GUSTAFSSON FOR THE NUMBER ONE CONTENDER SPOT. MAYBE AFTER THAT I CAN FIGHT ‘DC’ FOR THE BELT. I THINK BECAUSE HE WAS THE CHAMPION AND WITH WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO JONES, HE DESERVES TO FIGHT FOR THE BELT. IT’S A SMART CHOICE FOR [GUSTAFSSON] NOT FIGHT ME. HE’S RIGHT THERE FOR THE BELT TOO. HIS NEXT FIGHT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR THE BELT, SO BECAUSE OF THAT, FIGHTING WOULD ME WOULD BE COMPLETELY STUPID. HE WILL LOSE HIS SPOT IF HE FIGHTS ME, HE WILL GO DOWN AND LOSE ONE YEAR OF HIS LIFE.”
