UFC's Cody Stamann Gives Emotional Post-Fight Interview After Tragic Loss Of His Brother

UFC's Cody Stamann Gives Emotional Post-Fight Interview After Tragic Loss Of His Brother

Cody Stamann struggled to fight back the tears in an emotional post-fight interview after his win at UFC 250.

Stamann's 18-year old brother Jacob passed away suddenly last week but he elected to continue to fight on Saturday night's card at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas as his sibling would have wanted him to compete.

'The Spartan' beat Brian Kelleher via unanimous decision in a featherweight bout on the prelims and was visibly upset after the sound of the final buzzer and then when his hand was raised.

Backstage, he then gave a tear-jerking interview with UFC co-commentator Joe Rogan - who also fought back tears as he praised Stamann on one of his best performances inside the Octagon.
