If you weren’t convinced, prior to last night, that Cody Garbrandt is a legit contender at 135 pounds, well, chances are you are now.
If you watched UFC Fight Night 88 on Sunday, then you witnessed Garbrandt lighting up highly touted prospect Thomas Almeida, and finishing him in less than three minutes. Garbrandt also had a ton of hype behind him leading up the fight, but Almeida was 20-0 and a top ten ranked bantamweight. One would think Garbrandt will be joining the top ten here, however, soon enough.
Following the impressive win, Garbrandt spoke with the UFC’s Megan Olivi, and you can catch the interview below. During it the Ohio born fighter relayed he wants to fight at the September 10th, UFC 203 card in Cleveland.
