Before Betting on Johnny Walker vs. Volkan Oezdemir UFC Saudi Arabia

Johnny Walker is 21-8-1 overall, but he’s without a win in his last two fights. Both of those were against Magomed Ankalaev. In their first duel, Ankalaev landed an illegal knee by accident, which rendered Walker incapable of continuing. In the rematch, the Dagestani fighter won by a KO.

Now, he’s got a chance to get back on the winning track by beating Volkan Oezdemir, a former UFC Light Heavyweight title challenger. The Swiss fighter is 19-7 overall, with three of his seven losses happening since the start of the decade.

Those three losses happened to real elite opponents – Jiri Prochazka (KO), Magomed Ankalaev (decision), and Nikita Krylov (decision). In his most recent fight, Oezdemir defeated Bogdan Guskov by submission.
