Last weekend, Cody Garbrandt suffered a submission loss to Deiveson Figueiredo. It served as the latest setback in his push to climb back into title contention. At this point, many are wondering what the future holds for him in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

After fans questioned that explanation, Garbrandt continued to defend himself on X.

Garbrandt responds to criticism

“Not a good look to say what happened to me in a fight by what I was experiencing? It’s the truth takin nothing from Davison, you think I would just lay on my back not getting up whole time I was spinning not trying to get my face elbowed in and fighting through it.”

“Of course figgy is a great fighter honored to fight with him.”

Cody Garbrandt has never been afraid to put it all on the line in the Octagon. Unfortunately for him, his efforts didn’t pay off against Figueiredo. He certainly still has some real name value in the bantamweight division, but there are questions surrounding his ability to get back to the top. Either way, it’ll be interesting to see how his story unfolds in the months ahead.
