Cody Brundage improved to 5-0 and won the vacant Lights Out Fights super-middleweight championship on Saturday in Grand Rapids, Mich. He checked in with FightBook MMA about his fight and what’s next.
How would you rate your performance at Lights Out 7?
I thought the performance was great. I made the adjustments I needed to get the finish I knew I should have got the first time. Still a ton to improve on but that’s the fun part.
Did you feel like you had something to prove on fight night?
Definitely felt like I had a lot to prove, all the disrespect and trash talk I wanted to show that last time was a fluke, because any other time I’d finish him and early. There was so much hate after the first fight I wanted to prove people wrong.
Now that the dust has settled, how does it feel to be champ-champ?
Champ-champ feels good I’m the first one for lights out and they are blowing up. It’s all the expectation though I want to do big things in this sport and champ-champ is a step in that journey.
What’s next for you?
Right back to work, training getting better and preparing for the next opportunity I’ll always stay ready if and when it comes.
One year from today, where would you like to be in your fighting career?
I want to remain active get to 9-0, 10-0 by the end of the year defend my belts and breakthrough to one of the biggest promotions.
