Volkan Oezdemir currently has no legal obstacles in his way for UFC 220.

The UFC light heavyweight contender pleaded not guilty on a felony charge and demanded a trial by jury at an arraignment Tuesday in Broward County (Fla.) Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Court, his attorney Bruce A. Zimet told MMA Fighting. Oezdemir’s next court date is scheduled for Feb. 22.

Per state attorney spokesperson Kristi Grimm, there have been no stipulations made by the court regarding Oezdemir’s travel. So, he should have no issue making it to Boston for his title fight against UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier in the co-main event of UFC 220.

I’m on the fence regarding this.

1. Why is he allowed to fight if the UFC truly cares about a public image? Is there something regarding the scenario the public doesn’t know that exonerates him?
2. Does the UFC really ONLY care about the bottom line?!
3. Are they doing this just to NOT lost a title fight and fuck over DC?
