It was Jake Hadley (10-2 MMA) vs. Cody Durden (16-4 MMA) in a flyweight bout this past weekend, Saturday August 5th, at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, which saw ‘White Kong’ defeated by unanimous decision.

Hadley came into UFC Nashville with back-to-back wins against Carlos Candela (8-3 MMA) by submission in November of 2022 and Malcolm Gordon (14-7 MMA) by TKO this past March.

Durden, 32, with his victory over Hadley now has 4 consecutive wins in the cage.

Following the fight, Jake Hadley took to ‘Twitter‘ with a bloody photo of himself and the following message:

“Lost the fight few things went wrong before the fight I almost died during the weight cut I actually saw god for a second. couldn’t rehydrate like normal felt like that had a major effect on my performance because I couldn’t push like normal anyone who knows me knows I never gas.”

Concluding Hadley spoke highly of his opponent and the Nashville fans saying:

“Fix theses mistakes ready for the next one respect to Cody he showed he was a true warrior surviving that armbar what a gangster. Nashville fans was absolutely amazing they really showed me some love lot of people telling me should of been FOTN I dunno but Durden deserves a bonus.”

While that’s all the details the 27-year-old provided, time will tell if weight cuts will be problematic for the Brit in future fights in the Octagon.
