Volkan Oezdemir has earned his third victory under the UFC banner when he demolished Jimi Manuwa at UFC 214.
The fighter now has his sights set on Alexander Gustafsson, with the goal of crowning the “King Of Europe.”
Oezdemir made the challenge himself via Instagram:
Let's increase the value of the next title shot! @alexthemauler and I need to figure out who is the real king of Europe! Alex, I know how great you are and I respect you a lot but I'm going to knock you out! Not because I want to just because I have to! #jonesvsthekingofeurope #notime #newblood #iamdifferent
Gustafsson has yet to reply to the challenge from Oezdemir, but it appears that he has his sights set on a rematch with UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones:
@JonnyBones congrats Champ. Stop asking for retired fighters, I've been waiting to put my hands on you and so have all the fans.— Alexander Gustafsson (@AlexTheMauler) July 30, 2017
While Oezdemir last competed at UFC 214, the last time that Gustafsson last competed in the Octagon came at UFC Fight Night: Stockholm.
