UFC champion Cody Garbrandt holds an undefeated record in his professional MMA career, but in his final amateur fight he suffered a highlight-reel knockout loss to Jerrell Hodge.

Since that fight Garbrandt (11-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) has gone on to reach extraordinary heights. He claimed the UFC bantamweight title from Dominick Cruz at UFC 207 in December and is scheduled to make his first title defense against T.J. Dillashaw at UFC 217, which takes place Nov. 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York City and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Hodge (3-1), meanwhile, has taken the slow and steady approach to his career since his third-round knockout of Garbrandt at “NAAFS: Caged Vengeance 10” in February 2014. Hodge has competed just four times since turning pro in June 2014, but returns to action on Saturday at CFFC 68, which takes place at Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, N.J.
