Cody Durden (11-2-1 MMA, 0-0-1 UFC)

Flyweight (125lbs): 0-0 (UFC), 0-1 (MMA)

Catchweight (127-130lbs): 4-1 (MMA)

Bantamweight (135lbs): 0-0-1 (UFC), 9-0 (MMA), Missed weight 1 time recently outside UFC

Cody Durden has missed weight one time in his professional career, and it came earlier this year in a bantamweight bout against John Sweeeny. Durden has the majority of his bout in the bantamweight division as he stands at 5’7″ and has a 67″ reach.

Durden seems to have had difficulty in the past getting all the way down to 125lbs as is evidenced by all the bouts he has had at a catchweight. Durden is now 29 years old and is moving down to the flyweight division to take on promotional newcomer Jimmy Flick at UFC Vegas 17.
