This Sunday, in the main event of ‘UFC Fight Night 88’, Cody Garbrandt put an end to the undefeated streak of Thomas Almeida as he picked up an impressive 1st round KO. Following the fight, Garbrandt made his debut on the UFC’s bantamweight rankings, debuting at #7.
On the same card, Bryan Caraway defeated Aljamain Sterling, resulting in him jumping up to #4 on the bantamweight ladder.
Following the win, Garbrandt called out Caraway for a fight while on The MMA Hour:
“Going into this fight with Thomas Almeida, obviously, Aljamain Sterling and Bryan Caraway [were] matched up [on the card] too, and they talked about the winners facing each other.”
“So, I have no doubt in my mind that if Aljamain would’ve won, I’d be fighting Aljamain. Bryan won, so now why can’t I fight Bryan? Why shouldn’t I be fighting Bryan for the next in line for a title shot or that ranking up there? I think I just got ranked fifth, he’s fourth, so let’s fight Sept. 10 [at UFC 203].”
