Volkan Oezdemir vs Dominick Reyes Odds and Betting Prediction
March 14, 2019
Volkan “No Time” Oezdemir (15-3) meets Dominick “The Devastator” Reyes (10-0) in a light heavyweight bout on Saturday 16th March 2019 at the O2 in London in UFC Fight Night 147.
Oezdemir comes into the contest looking to return to winning ways after losing his last two fights. The Swiss fight had a fantastic 2017 in which he puts himself firmly on the map with two impressive knockout wins.
However, 2018 was a disappointment in which he had a couple of major reversals, starting with defeat to a second-round TKO in his title fight against the then-champion Daniel Cormier at UFC 220 in the January, followed by a third-round submission to Anthony Smith when he returned to action at UFC Fight Night 138 in October.
Oezdemir undeniably needs a win here if he is to rebuild his reputation as a credible title challenger going forward.
The 29 year-old Reyes will be looking to extend his undefeated record to 11 career wins, with him currently boasting a 4-0 record in the UFC. His best win to date came in his last fight when he claimed a unanimous decision victory against the Haitian-American Ovince Saint Preux at UFC 229 in October.
