Cody Stamann Done With Underdog Status

UFC News

He recently moved to Las Vegas to train at the UFC Performance Institute and it’s been a game-changer. As a Michigan native, the sunny days in Las Vegas have spoiled him – he jokingly said he hates Washington D.C. so far because of the cold, but at the end of the day he’s here to win fights, not take in the sights.

But aside from the consistent comforting weather of Las Vegas, Stamann said the PI has far exceeded his expectations and thinks more fighters should be utilizing the resources it offers. And though he’s not in a rush to reach his greatness, he admits his experience at the PI has jumpstarted his ascent.

“I’m definitely heading in that direction (reaching my peak),” Stamann said. “I started to notice it since I moved to Las Vegas. When I really turn it on and am hitting on all cylinders, I can smoke everybody in the gym. I’m going against super high-level guys, the elite in the MMA community, and when I’m really putting it all on I don’t think anyone can touch me.

“I just turned 30, I maybe have five good years left. I don’t want to be one of those guys that tries to stretch it until they’re 40. I want to be done while my body is still doing what I want it to do. I don’t want to be doing this for a paycheck because once your body stops doing what it needs to, I know what it is to be a young, hungry dude. And I don’t want to fight those types of guys.”
