Daniel Cormier will indeed defend his light heavyweight title at UFC 220 opposite Volkan Oezdemir.
The promotion officially announced the bout following Cormier’s announcement on “UFC Tonight” Wednesday evening.
UFC 220 takes place January 20 from the TD Garden in Boston.
There was some talk that Oezdemir could miss out on his title shot after he was charged for an incident earlier this year outside the Octagon.
Cormier was named champion once more after Jon Jones was stripped of the belt following a failed drug test. Jones had earned his second career win over Cormier.
