Cody Stamann’s recent clash against Douglas Silva De Andrade was a disappointing one as he was close to a victory but failed to outweigh dominating moments. The Brazilian fighter Douglas Silva De Andrade won via unanimous decision and updated his professional MMA record to 29-5.

Cody Stamann had already prepared his plans for the future, he wanted to call out the undefeated Movsar Evloev, but he won’t be fighting him next as Stamann will have to prove himself worthy enough on a few more occasions before getting his hands on a tough competitor.

Cody Stamann’s thoughts on his recent match

It was unquestionably a gutting loss for Cody Stamann, he does not want to take a long break. He speaks about his fight in great detail and mentions how he was ready to fight next month if presented with the opportunity.

“I got a nasty taste in my mouth about this whole ordeal and I already spoke to Sean Shelby. I don’t have a mark on my face, my leg was a little beat up so I plan to take this week off and just relax,” Stamann said, as quoted by

“I would 100 percent fight again next month, I have no objections to fighting that soon. I’m healthy and didn’t take any damage. I just want to get this nasty taste out of my mouth and recoup some money I lost from that ref’s decision”.

He further said. “Had I won this fight, I think I would have gone up to featherweight, at least for a couple of fights. I was planning to fight someone in the top 10, I had a callout ready. I was going to call out Movsar Evloev, I felt like that was a good fight.

But, now I’ll take what I can get and I’ll fight at 135 or 145. I just want a good matchup and someone I can put out”.
