Cody Garbrandt Plans on Moving Down in Weight to ‘Really Save the Flyweight Division’

Former UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt sees his future at 125 pounds.

“No Love” is currently on a three-bout skid and hasn’t competed in the Octagon since a first-round TKO loss against Pedro Munhoz at UFC 235 in March 2019. He was expected to return against Raphael Assuncao in a 135-pound bout at UFC on ESPN 8 on March 28, but pulled out before the event was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Ohio native is confident that cutting to flyweight won’t be an issue in the long run.
