It was just this past Saturday night at the historic UFC 300 which saw Cody Garbrandt (14-6 MMA) succumb to Deiveson Figueiredo (23-3 MMA) by submission in a bantamweight bout (see that here).

The former UFC bantamweight champion came into the fight with the Brazilian having 2 victories in a row, defeating Trevin Jones (14-11 MMA) in March of last year and Brian Kelleher (24-15 MMA) this past December.

A third victory was not to be for the 32-year-old ‘No Love’.

Figueiredo had recently defeated Rob Font (20-8 MMA) last December prior to being victorious this past weekend.

Taking to ‘X‘, Cody Garbrandt posted the following statement concerning his loss:

“I felt great in my fight until I started to experience vertigo. I couldn’t control the spinning once it was to the ground. Hats off to Deiveson and his camp! I ended up going to the hospital where I was still experiencing the vertigo, throwing up until 4 a.m. ,,, I’ll get this corrected. I’ve dealt with vertigo since 2012. Thank you to the fans that came out to support. It wasn’t my night, but I love doing what I do. I’ll be back in there before the year is up.”

Apparently, Cody Garbrandt has been dealing with vertigo for years and as they say timing is everything.
