Cody Stamann



Snaps three-fight losing streak
June 18, 2022
Stamann defeated Eddie Wineland via TKO (punches) at 0:59 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Austin, Texas.
Stamann did exactly what he was supposed to do as a -700 favorite, largest on the entire card. Going up against an aging opponent who can no longer take a punch, Stamann came out extremely aggressive from the very start and managed to score the stoppage in just under a minute. Like all nine fight finishers Saturday, Stamman will earn a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts. A win over Wineland in the middle of 2022 means nothing for Stamann in the long run, but what it does do is save his job, something that was far from guaranteed when the evening began considering Cody entered on a three-fight losing streak dating back to July 2020.

Fighting in June
April 15, 2022
Stamann will fight Eddie Wineland at the UFC event June 18, Marcel Dorff of reports.
Stamann last fought in January, losing to Said Nurmagomedov via submission (guillotine choke). He'll look to break his three-fight losing streak when he takes on Wineland in June. Wineland will come into the match after losing his last two bouts, most recently suffering a defeat to John Castaneda in February 2021 via TKO (punches).
Losing streak hits three
January 22, 2022
Stamann lost to Said Nurmagomedov via submission (guillotine choke) at 0:47 of Round 1 at UFC 270 on Saturday in Anaheim.
Stamann has fallen on hard times of late, but he had still been plenty durable. At least prior to this fight. The general assumption was that Cody would have to use his wrestling game in order to have a chance in this fight, and he was forced into a takedown attempt after Nurmagomedov tuned him up on the feet in the early going. Unfortunately for Stamann, he left his neck exposed in the exchange, and Nurmagomedov quickly and emphatically grabbed a hold and choked him out. Cody has now lost three fights in a row and is 2-4-1 dating back to September 2018. A member of the UFC roster since July 2017, it's far from a guarantee that Stamann gets another shot with the company. There just isn't much upside here at this point.
Booked for UFC 270
October 8, 2021
Stamann is set to take on Said Nurmagomedov at UFC 270 on Jan. 22, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Stamann is coming off a loss to Merab Dvalishvili at UFC Fight Night in May. He sports a 2-3-1 record dating back to Sept. 2018, so he will look to turn things around at UFC 270. His opponent, Nurmagomedov, defeated Mark Striegl vi KO (punches) in his most recent match at UFC Fight Night in Abu Dhabi, and sports a 14-2 professional MMA record.
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.
