Cody Garbrandt sent a message to his fans after being defeated for the fourth time in his career.
Cody lost again, but this time by unanimous decision. The former bantamweight champion stepped into the octagon to face the division’s No. 3 contender, Rob Font, in the UFC Vegas 27 main event fight.
For all five rounds, Font was clearly superior. He walked all over him and punished Garbrandt. He took the win on the judges’ scorecards, where complete domination was reflected. (50-45, 50-45, 48-46). Garbrandt now has four losses in his last five fights, while Font earns his fourth win in a row.
Cody Garbrandt’s first words after his loss to Rob Font
The former 135-pound champion, took to social media the day after his loss to speak to his fans via an Instagram live video.
“Rob was the best man today. I feel like I was fighting myself in there, battling myself. I’m not taking credit away from him, kudos to his camp. First and foremost, thank god for keeping us both healthy in there. A lot of positive things will come out of this, I’ll shake it off and get back to my coaches and teammates.”
‘No Love’ had managed to redeem himself from his three-fight losing streak when he knocked out Raphael Assuncao in spectacular fashion at UFC 250. Prior to that remarkable victory, Cody had suffered three devastating knockouts, one of which, against TJ Dillashaw, cost him his bantamweight belt.
Finally and almost in tears, Cody was grateful to his fans for their support, and stated that he will work harder to become champion again.
“We continue to strive to be the best and to be champions. Sometimes there are adversities that get in the way of your dreams. They make you work harder and make you realize what you need to make the road more enjoyable. I am very grateful. I wanted to come and tell you how much I appreciate and love your support. I really appreciate it. I’m trying to fight with all my heart for you guys. Thank you.”
