Cody Garbrandt is on a quest to make history at UFC 207. He is looking to be the first fighter to ever take the title belt away from Dominick Cruz. Garbrandt stays true to his roots and often goes back to his native Ohio. He is a proud supporter of the kids on his high school wrestling team and aids in training them for success. Part of being a UFC star is giving back to the community that helped mold you. The kids understand that what Garbrandt is doing for them, is special. When many athletes ‘make it’ they don’t look in their rear view to see what they left behind. Training with a superstar who doesn’t act like one, can have an extremely positive affect on a kid who may need some direction.
As for Garbrandt’s preparation for Dominick Cruz… His Team Alpha Male peers express praise and envy for Garbrandt’s work ethic. They recognize Cody possessing the skill and mindset of a world champion. On December 30, 2016 at UFC 207, Cody Garbrandt will have the chance to become a UFC title holder. Everything seem to be lining up nicely for Garbrandt in his mission for gold. Now he just has to go out and take what he feels is his.
