Volkan Oezdemir was scheduled to face Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua on July 22 in Germany, but the UFC opted to move him to UFC 227 against Alexander Gustafsson. Meanwhile, Shogun will be fighting Anthony Smith who himself was scheduled to fight in his hometown of Nebraska.

The fight will mark Oezdemir’s return to octagon following a loss to champ Daniel Cormier at UFC 220. Meanwhile, “The Mauler” has been out of action since a May 2017 beatdown of Glover Teixeira and has been fuming about getting a rematch with Daniel Cormier. The Champ is moving up to fight Stipe Miocic for the Heavyweight belt at UFC 226. The winner of this fight could be next in line to face Cormier.
