The UFC 227 showdown between Volkan Oezdemir and Alexander Gustafsson is now officially cancelled. An injury had forced Oezdemir out of the fight initially and later, Gustafsson was also forced out of the show due to an injury.
Oezdemir has now come out on Social Media with a picture of his injury. The Light Heavyweight star posted a picture of his broken nose on Instagram last day and you can see it below.
He was coming into the fight at UFC 227 on the back of a defeat against Daniel Cormier which ended his five-fight winning streak. Gustafsson, meanwhile, was looking to extend his winning streak to three fights as he had picked up wins against Glover Teixeira and Jan Blachowicz in his last two outings.
UFC 227 will be headlined by the Bantamweight title showdown between TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt. The Flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson and Henry Cejudo will serve as a co-main event.
