Volkan Oezdemir showed up to a Q&A prior to Friday’s UFC on ESPN+ 11 ceremonial weigh-ins and discussed the situation with fans.

Here’s what the fighter said about the present situation :

“I’m not going to go into details, but it’s what happened,” Oezdemir said. “It’s weight cut time and everything’s getting a little bit difficult, so he pulled his back and he wasn’t able to fight. Here I am. I’m ready to fight. I was hoping something would happen, a last-minute change, but it wasn’t meant to be, so I’m looking forward to the next one.”

Regarding what may be next in his mind, Oezdemir said the following :

“For me the one I really want to avenge the most is my last fight,” Oezdemir said. “Dominick Reyes, his win is a stain on my record so I want to make it right.”

It is yet to be seen whether UFC will consider Oezdemir’s request or not. Oezdemir also wished Ilir Latifi a speedy recovery :

“Right now the fight got canceled and things happen,” Oezdemir said “It’s too bad. I just wish a quick recovery for Ilir.”
