Fight Night 138 will feature Volkan Oezdemir versus Anthony Smith
Another big matchup has been announced. We told you about Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier getting tagged for UFC 230 and now we have another announcement. A pair of top Light Heavyweights will clash at Fight Night 138 in Moncton, New Brunswick, CA. Anthony Smith has been on a tear, winning five of his last six, all via stoppage. He defeated Shogun Rua via the first-round knockout a couple of weeks ago and heads into this fight on a roll.
Volkan Oezdemir is coming off of a loss in a championship fight with Daniel Cormier. This will be his first fight since then, and he’ll be looking to get back into the title picture with a victory. He has a record of 15-2 and exploded onto the scene in 2017 with three victories via TKO within a five-month period.
The UFC Fight Night 138 card takes place at the Moncton Events Centre in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada on 27th, 2018.
