Cody Garbrandt is undefeated. He’s 10-0 as a professional mixed martial artist, including winning all three of his UFC fights in 2016. He’s finished four of his five UFC opponents by way of TKO or knockout, including the highly regarded Takeya Mizugaki and Thomas Almeida.
His credentials are impeccable.
After taking out Mizugaki in less than a minute at UFC 202 in August, Garbrandt believes he deserves the next shot at UFC gold. Next up, he wants a fight against UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz. In his mind, he is the next fight for Dominick Cruz.
“In my mind, that’s my next fight. I think in Dom’s mind, he has to get ready for it. I truly believe I’m next in line for the title shot.”
But does the UFC feel the same? Garbrandt discussed the possibility of the fight with Cruz, when it could happen, and more with the media during the UFC 203 event on Sept. 10 in Cleveland, Ohio.
