Paul Craig vs. Volkan Oezdemir Breakdown

Paul Craig Record: 16-4-1

UK's own Paul Craig looks to continue the run of his career when he makes the walk down to the octagon at UFC London.

The 34-year-old had a mixed bag of results to start his UFC career when entering the promotion in 2016, winning just 2 of his first 6 outings under the MMA leader's banner. However, Craig is currently white-hot, undefeated in 6 straight bouts, including victories over the likes of Vinicius Moreira, Gadzhimurad Antigulov, Shogun Rua, Jamahal Hill, and most recently, Nikita Krylov, this past March.

Volkan Oezdemir Record: 17-6

Former UFC light heavyweight title challenger Volkan Oezdemir looks to get back on track at UFC London.

The 32-year-old went on a historic run when he first entered the UFC in 2017. Following a narrow split-decision victory over longtime division staple Ovince St-Preux in his promotional debut, Oezdemir secured back-to-back knockout victories over Misha Cirkunov and Jimi Manuwa in just 28 and 42-seconds each. The pair of knockouts earned the Swiss-born contender a title shot against then-champion Daniel Cormier. However, Oezdemir would be outclassed by the UFC Hall of Famer en route to a second-round submission loss. The loss to Cormier would start a bit of a downward trend for Oezdemir as the veteran has lost 5 of his last 7 outings, but his two wins are over perennial contenders Ilir Latifi and Aleksandr Rakic, respectively.
