Cody Stamann vs. Taylor Lapilus Set for UFC Fight Night on June 8

Oh boy, we’ve got a bantamweight clash that’s gonna set the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on fire this June 8. Cody Stamann is squaring off against the former champ of Ares Fighting Championship, Taylor Lapilus. This is not just any fight; it’s a battle that’s been buzzing around since it was first whispered by Stamann’s crew over at Iridium Sports Agency. And guess where they dropped the news? On X, you know, the platform we used to call Twitter.

Now, let’s talk about Stamann for a sec. The guy’s record is 21-6, which is no joke. But, he’s coming off a bit of a rough patch, having lost to Douglas Silva de Andrade last May. That loss kinda put a damper on his two-fight winning streak. Before that, he had a couple of tough breaks against some heavy hitters like Said Nurmagomedov, Merab Dvalishvili, and Jimmie Rivera. It’s been a rollercoaster, to say the least.

On the flip side, we’ve got Lapilus. His record’s sitting pretty at 19-4. But like Stamann, he’s also trying to bounce back from a loss. Farid Basharat handed him a unanimous decision defeat at UFC Fight Night 234. Before that stumble, Lapilus was on a bit of a tear, snagging a win against Caolan Loughran and riding a five-fight winning streak from his days at Ares Fighting Championship and TKO Major League MMA. The guy’s been around the block, fighting his way back to the big show.

And hey, while we’re all hyped about Stamann vs. Lapilus, let’s not forget the rest of the fight card. There’s a middleweight clash that’s got everyone talking – Julian Marquez vs. Zachary Reese. Plus, a strawweight showdown between Eduarda Moura and Denise Gomes. This night’s shaping up to be one for the books, folks. So, mark your calendars, grab your snacks, and get ready for some top-tier MMA action. It’s gonna be a blast!
