UFC light heavyweight Volkan Oezdemir was arrested Saturday and charged with aggravated battery causing bodily harm or disability in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Jail records show Oezdemir is being held on $10,000 bond as of Sunday morning. No further details on the case have been provided at this time.
Oezdemir, 28, is 15-1 in his professional MMA career. He's 3-0 since coming over to UFC in February and is a rising member of the light heavyweight ranks. UFC currently ranks him as the No. 2 contender for Daniel Cormier's championship.
Cormier had announced Oezdemir as his next opponent in September, though a date had not been formally set.
“Volkan and I are going to fight,” Cormier told MMAjunkie's Mike Bohn earlier this month. “The thing is pretty close to getting confirmed. We’re going to be getting it going, me and Oezdemir.”
It's unclear if the arrest will have any effect on the potential bout.
