Cody Garbrandt :
“We’ll see how the bantamweight shakes out,” Garbrandt told reporters, including MMA Junkie, during Thursday’s UFC 250 virtual media day. “I want to the best in the world, that’s what I set out to do. If it’s in the cards for me to go down to ’25 and become the flyweight champion as well as the bantamweight champion, then we’ll do that. We’ll talk with my coaches and my managers. But first and foremost I have a tough adversary in Raphael Assuncao for Saturday I’m focused on.
“You’ve always got to have your second goals ready to go, but it’s getting back to the throne. That’s what I want. I want the bantamweight title back. I’m very excited for that opportunity to climb the ranks again. Once a hunter always a hunter.”
