Former UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt is targeting a return early next year.

Garbrandt is currently on a three-fight losing streak with all those defeats coming via knockout. His most recent defeat was to Pedro Munhoz at UFC 235 earlier this year in March.

“No Love” hasn’t competed since and is currently nursing a wrist injury. However, he hopes to return in March 2020 in what would be a year since his last outing. The caveat is that he wants to fight in his home state of Ohio:

“I’m hoping for March return, hopefully sooner,” Garbrandt told MMA Junkie. “I talked to Dana a few days ago. I would like for the UFC to come back to Ohio in March. There’s the Arnold Classic there. It’s a great time to go and do that, so we’ll see.

We got Stipe (Miocic) as the champion again, so Stipe fighting in Ohio the home state, I would love to, and that’s where I’m at with that. I’m excited to come back.”

Despite his recent losing streak, Garbrandt is still young and believes he can get his title back. He is also very eager to return due to just how exciting the bantamweight division is becoming:

“I’ve been a little injury prone these last few fights and camps, but I’m taking my time, and I just turned 28. I have a lot of life and fight in me,” Garbrandt added. “My hunger is still – everyday I wake up excited to get back.

My division is one of the most entertaining, best divisions in the UFC. You got Frankie coming down, you got Edgar, you got Marlon (Moraes), you got Henry (Cejudo), Dominick’s (Cruz) making his comeback, you got T.J. ‘Pillashaw,’ he’ll probably be back. You know he’s taken his steroids, so it’s a good division. Those are all good guys, so it keeps me excited.”

Are you excited to see Garbrandt back? Who do you want to see him face next?

Cody Garbrandt will not return to the Octagon until 2020.

The former bantamweight champion has been dealing with a bevy of injuries and was set to return by the end of 2019. Yet, that is no longer the case. His manager, Ali Abdelaziz told MMAJunkie by text message.

He reportedly suffered another injury in training last week and has a surgery scheduled. The report says Cody Garbrandt suffered a torn tendon. This, of course, comes just weeks after he said he was cleared to return and was eyeing a late 2019 return to the Octagon.

Garbrandt last fought back at UFC 235 in March where he was knocked out by Pedro Munhoz in the first round. It was his third loss in a row, all of which came by knockout. Before the loss to the Brazilian, he was knocked out in back-to-back fights at UFC 217 and UFC 227 by rival, T.J. Dillashaw.

“No Love” is 11-3 as a pro and currently ranked seventh in the division but should fall even more once the rankings are updated after UFC 241.

The exact timeline of when he will return is unknown, but it should be in early 2020. Who he will fight is also unknown at this time.

Who do you think Cody Garbrandt should fight upon his return in 2020?

A Welsh man has been jailed after a Tinder scam where he conned multiple women while using a picture of former UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt.

According to the BBC, Paul Davies of Neath Port Talbot made a fake Tinder profile, calling himself Aaron Edwards. Using the image of Garbrandt, he claimed he was a manager for Audi and resided in penthouse apartment.

Davies would build a rapport with the women he interacted with before “spinning stories” and making requests for money. One of the victims only became aware of the fraud after a friend’s nephew identified Garbrandt in the photos.

In total, he conned eight women out of more than £16,000 ($19,800). The 30-year-old will be jailed for 34 months for eight counts of fraud by false representation.

As for the real Garbrandt, he hasn’t fought since a knockout defeat to Pedro Munhoz at UFC 235 earlier this year. However, he’s now ready to return and is targeting anyone in the top five of the bantamweight division.
