A few hours ago, new information about the former champion of UFC, Cody Garbrandt. The former Bantamweight leader (12-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) will drop to 125 pounds to meet Kai Kara-France (22-9 MMA, 5-2 UFC). This battle will take place at UFC 269 on December 11. In this way, the nutritionist Capodaglio spoke with MMA Junkie and expressed what can happen with him.

“There are all the premises, there are all the correct numbers to get it right. And we’re still in a phase where, yes, you did start to lose weight for sure. It is our first camp together. I’ve never actually worked with a nutritionist before, so we’re also working on creating a performance-based plan. So I’m teaching him to eat, ”Capodaglio began by saying.

In addition, he indicated: “There are days when you want to stimulate adaptation, so you are going to eat a little less and you are going to create physiological levels of stress in your body so that you can react and improve. In science we say that physiological stress induces adaptation. so we are working on that. He’s a huge bike fanatic so he rides a lot and that helps a lot when it comes to a weight class drop. “

A new Cody

“He is not a person who has had problems reaching 135 and now he is going to try to do something impossible to reach 125 in UFC. To get to 135, he was eating healthy, but there was no specific reason behind that. Now we are putting more order. Then we have a lot of time for this fall. He will eat very well until fight week, so don’t think about a 1500 kilocalorie diet. That is not going to happen, “said the nutritionist of Cody.

In closing, he said of Garbrandt: “He’s not going to aggressively dehydrate to make the weight. So by the time you fight, in 30, sometimes 36 hours, you will be fully hydrated. I’ll test your hydration. Cody will be fully rehydrated. I think you’re really going to see a new Cody Garbrandt in the cage, and I’m not sugarcoating reality, but I really see a new motivation. He sees his way in a different way, and I think that will translate into the cage when he fights. “
