Cody Garbrandt Claims To Be The ‘Most Hungry Fighter Ever’

The fourth-ever 135-pound champion in UFC history is set to make the first defense of his title this weekend (Sat. November 4, 2017) at Madison Square Garden against his former teammate-turned-rival TJ Dillashaw.

Garbrandt has been dominant thus far in his mixed martial arts (MMA) career, racking up an undefeated record of 11-0 in which he has finished nine of his opponents via knockout. His most recent win saw him defeat, arguably, the greatest 135-pound fighter of all time in Dominick Cruz – and he did it in dominant fashion.

“No Love” was able to neutralize Cruz’s signature movement that has frustrated the best of fighters (including Dillashaw), and knocked down “The Dominator” several times throughout their 25-minute contest.

The Team Alpha Male product became the second man to ever defeat Cruz in MMA competition, and proved himself a true force to be reckoned with inside the Octagon. Now he’ll have to make his first title defense against former UFC bantamweight king TJ Dillashaw, who has been on a two-fight win streak since losing his title to Cruz in January of last year.

During a recent media scrum Garbrandt vowed to put on the best performance of his fighting career, and claimed to be the ‘most hungry fighter ever’ (quotes via MMA Junkie):

“Three days until I put on my best performance and defend my title,” Garbrandt said. “It’s exciting. It’s going to be worth it.

“You can expect me to be better than ever before. I’m the most hungry fighter ever.

    Dinner was two hours ago.

    There might be some turkey meat left in the fridge.

    • HeteroFriendly

      But I think your unkle Bill Garbrangt ate all the gravy.

  • Shock Wave

    This kids is gonna wreck TJ up so bad!!

    • Draven

      Not if Killashaw wrecks him first.

      • Shock Wave

        Killashaw dies at the end of No Loves Glove

        • Draven

          No Love has beaten no top contenders. Killashaw has cleared out the division. He wins back the belt via KO.

          • Shock Wave

            Cody beat Cruz, making him look stupid, for 5 rounds.
            Dullashaw couldn’t even keep up.

            TJ is going down faster than a 5$ ho.

          • Draven

            Dillashaw wrecked Cruz’s leg. I’d say he kept up pretty well. No shame in losing a close split decision. Who has Cody beat besides Cruz? Nobody but gatekeepers while TJ beat Barao, Lineker & Assuncao. He’s more the real deal than Cody.

          • Draven

            LOL what happened to Cody?

          • Shock Wave

            Pfft. Killashaw won’t make one defense.

          • Draven

            Haha, sure. You’re looking at the king who has cleaned out the division.

          • Shock Wave

            Meh.
            Still just gonna keep the belt warm for the next champion.

          • Draven

            Well he’ll be keeping it for a long long time. Thrillashaw is untouchable now!

          • Shock Wave

            I don’t give TJ any credit til he defends.
            Those stupid poses and feints won’t always work,
            he’ll be taken out like Cody, just the same

          • Draven

            It worked against Barao, Cody, Assuncao and Lineker. Cody hasn’t done jack shit and is one dimensional. He ain’t getting the belt back until he does more than just boxing.

          • Shock Wave

            And your boy is keeping the belt for the next challenger.

          • Draven

            Speculation.

          • Shock Wave

            Cody hasn’t done shit?
            He beat Cruz, knocked him down multiple times.

            Yeah that’s nothing alright.

            And what did your boy do?
            He lost to Cruz.

            So there’s plenty of challengers ready, and TJ won’t be ready, because he’s chasing a fight against a smaller opponent in Mighty Mouse.

            Who’s ducking already?

            Dorkashaw.

          • Draven

            Yep great, he beat one top guy but only kept the belt warm for Thrillashaw. Who else has Cody beaten? Nobody but a bunch of bums. Thrillashaw has beaten more too contenders in the UFC than both Cody and Cruz combined.

            You’re irrelevant now. Keep crying over your loss.

          • Shock Wave

            No dude, I gave you valid points and now you are crying.
            You now earned “Sit down and Shut up” status.

            Have a nice week!

          • Draven

            Nope, your boy got KTFO and now you’re in complete denial and crying like a baby.

            You’re irrelevant!

  • Bill Wolf

    Judging by appearances, the most hungry fighter ever (that made weight) was Conor McGregor at 145lbs.

    • HeteroFriendly

      I just took a look at that “Money fight”,
      and once again Conny looks HUGE next to Mayweather.
      (And embarrassingly clumsy…)

      Theres something weird about his phisiology.

      The huge shoulders are already strange.
      But he must be able to shrink his colon or something to make the weights that he does, and then show up looking like he’s 185!

    • Draven

      LOL.
