Cody Gibson "Not Proud" of TMZ Bar Fight Video, Believes UFC Job is Safe
This was not the Monday that Cody Gibson was expecting.
The UFC bantamweight’s day began with news that celebrity gossip website TMZ.com had posted a video of Gibson being punched in the face and the subsequent scuffle which took place last week at a Las Vegas bar.
“When I woke up this morning, I definitely had that pit in the bottom of my stomach, like, ‘Holy crap. Could I be that guy?’ You know, who gets fired over some stupid stuff,” Gibson said today in an interview with Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown.” “I didn’t think that it would be on TMZ... I have 1,800 followers on Twitter. I’m not [Clayton] Kershaw. I’m not [Derek] Jeter. I’m not Jon Jones.”
UFC Quick Quote: Vitor Belfort's strength hasn't changed, just his TRT-less physique
"From my point of view, Vitor was and still is the hardest working guy in the gym. I worked with him after he got off the TRT and his strength level didn't change. He was very strong. He's still a strong guy. His physique did change quite a bit, but I think that was water retention. The strength level was the same.... I thought then, and I still think now, that he'll win. I know he's a better boxer than Weidman. I know that for a fact."
