Cody Stamann reacts to controversial UFC DC draw, plans to appeal

Mike Heck - December 9, 2019

One of the fights fans were looking forward to seeing most on Saturday night at UFC on ESPN 7 was a bantamweight fight between Cody Stamann and Song Yadong. While the fight featured a solid game plan from Stamann against a 2-1 favored opponent in the dangerous Yadong, it was mired in controversy following the reading of the judges score cards.

Cody Stamann says judges did him wrong, wants UFC to make things right

Tom Taylor - October 16, 2017

Earlier this month, on the undercard of UFC 216, Cody Stamann and Tom Duquesnoy collided in a clash of bantamweight prospects. Though both fighters possessed identical 15-1 professional records, many felt that the Octagon-side commentary of Daniel Cormier and Joe Rogan leaned a little too far in favor of the highly-hyped Frenchman Duquesnoy. Stamann, who ended up winning the fight by decision, shared this opinion when he finally had a chance to listen to the fight’s commentary.
