Cody Stamann


Battles before dropping decision
May 1, 2021
Stamann lost to Merab Dvalishvili via unanimous decision (27-30, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
No opponent has been able to stop Dvalishvili's takedown attempts on a consistent basis, and Stamann wouldn't be the first. The good news is that Cody remained competitive despite allowing Merab to complete five successful tries. Stamann remained active and did a decent job of attempting to match Dvalishvili's pace, but the latter is simply on a different level in terms of cardio than anyone else in the division. Stamann's 2-3-1 mark dating back to September 2018 is ugly, but it's important to keep in mind that those losses came against Dvalishvili, Jimmie Rivera and current UFC Bantamweight Champion Aljamain Sterling. Still, Cody will have to string together some victories at some point. He's running out of time to make an impact in the title picture.

Now fighting Dvalishvili in May
March 10, 2021
Stamann and Dvalishvili (illness) have been added to UFC Fight Night on May 1, reports.
This is the third time that Stamann and Dvalishvili have attempted to schedule their bantamweight fight, but now that both fighters appear to be fully cleared from any health issues, things appear to be proceeding on schedule. Most recently, the pair had to be scratched from UFC Vegas 18 in February due to Dvalishvili dealing with issues relating to COVID-19.
Fight pulled from card
February 6, 2021
Stamann will no longer be fighting at UFC Vegas 18 on Saturday after his most recent opponent, Askar Askar, was not medically cleared to compete, Damon Martin of reports.
Stamann was given three different opponents for Saturday's UFC event and all three guys had to be pulled. The UFC doesn't have enough time to find him a new fighter with card set to get underway in just a few hours so they decided to entirely pull the bout from the lineup instead. It's unclear when Stamann is expected to appear next but Dana White will surely do everything in his power to schedule him a new fight after all three of his potential opponents were forced to withdraw.
Opponent change confirmed
February 2, 2021
Stamann will now take on the debuting Askar Askar in a bantamweight matchup at UFC Vegas 18 on Saturday, reports.
Stamann was originally set to face Andre Ewell, but Ewell was forced to pull out due to health and safety protocols that mandate a 10-day absence following a positive test. He now draws a 26-year-old prospect in Askar who owns a 11-1 MMA record, most recently competing under the banner of LFA. Askar will enter with approximately a five-inch reach advantage, though Stamann has still opened up as a betting favorite of roughly (-300).
Needs new opponent again
February 1, 2021
Stamann needs another new opponent for his scheduled Saturday fight after Andre Ewell withdrew for undisclosed reasons Monday, Marcel Dorff of reports.
Stamann has had a bit of an adventure trying to get back into the Octagon. He was twice scheduled to face Merab Dvalishvili but saw the matchup cancelled both times due to COVID-19. Ewell had stepped in to replace Dvalishvili but is now out of the picture as well. The UFC is reportedly trying to keep Stamann on Saturday's card against a new opponent, but time is tight for one to be found.
Gets new opponent
January 15, 2021
Stamann is now scheduled to face Andre Ewell at the UFC's Feb. 6 event after Merab Dvalishvili (illness) was forced to withdraw, Cole Shelton of reports.
Stamann's fight was already pushed back from Dec. 5 due to Davilshvili working his way back from COVID-19 issues and it appears he still wasn't ready. Instead, Stamann will prepare for Ewell, who is riding a two-match winning streak and will get a shot at a ranked opponent on short notice.
