Daniel Cormier recounts fight week run-in with Volkan Oezdemir and his “little minions”

Daniel Cormier

UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier endures a very tough cut down to his division’s 205-pound limit, and that’s no secret. If you’ve seen any footage of the champ in the immediate lead-up to his Saturday night showdown with Volkan Oezdemir, it’s clear that this present weight cut is no exception. While he probably has it well under control, he certainly looks a little rough.

Apparently, Oezdemir hasn’t hesitated to let Cormier know that he looks a somewhat depleted. Cormier detailed a quick run-in with Oezdemir and his “minions” in a Thursday afternoon Instagram post.

“Volkan tried to say I look like death, when I asked him bout his weight this dude told me he’s heavier than I am lol,” the light heavyweight champion said in his post. “Then his little minions ran out of the cafeteria to try and defend him. I told em to stay in their place before they get what volkan has coming to him on Saturday night!”
