Snaps brief losing streak
March 4, 2023
Garbrandt defeated Trevin Jones via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC 285 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
The fact that Garbrandt emerged victorious is all that really matters here, but this was by no means a dominant performance. He was better than Jones on the feet the first two rounds, but not exceptionally so. Cody did land two impressive takedowns and appeared to be on the way to a clear decision win, at which point Garbrandt got popped with a couple big shots from Jones in Round 3, which he didn't handle well. Cody's durability has been a major issue in the past, and the fact Jones -- a fighter with little power -- damaged him on the few shots he landed isn't a positive sign. Those expecting the 31-year-old Ohio native to return to the championship-level we have seen from him in the past appeared destined to come away disappointed.
Receives new opponent
February 3, 2023
Garbrandt will now face Trevin Jones at UFC 285 on March 4, Brett Okamoto of reports.
Following the withdrawal of Julio Arce (knee), Garbrandt will now face an opponent who has dropped three consecutive UFC fights since August 2021.
Needs new opponent for March 4
January 30, 2023
Garbrandt is no longer scheduled to face Julio Arce in a bantamweight bout at UFC 285 in Las Vegas on March 4 after Arce withdrew Monday due to a knee injury suffered during training, Marcel Dorff of reports.
The UFC has yet to announce whether Garbrandt will remain on the card with a new opponent or if his return to the Octagon will be pushed back further. The 31-year-old Garbrandt last fought in December 2021 against Kai Kara-France after now having his subsequent three scheduled bouts postponed.
Fight on tap with Julio Arce
December 14, 2022
Garbrandt (12-5-0) is scheduled to face Julio Arce (18-6-0) in a bantamweight fight scheduled for March 4 at UFC 285 in Las Vegas, Mike Heck of reports.
Garbrandt ended up not making any appearances in the Octagon in 2022 after he had scheduled bouts with Rani Yahya cancelled in July and October due to both fighters picking up injuries while training. Now healthy heading into 2023, the former bantamweight champion will look to get back on track after losing in five of his last six bouts. Garbrandt's most recent fight came at the flyweight level back in December 2021, when he lost to Kai Kara-France via first-round TKO.
Dealing with injury
September 20, 2022
Garbrandt will not fight on the Oct. 1 UFC card, Damon Martin of reports.
Garbrandt was originally slated to take on Rani Yahya before his opponent had to withdraw with a neck injury. Garbrandt now has his own issues and it's unclear when he will return to the Octagon.
