Before his recent entry to the octagon, UFC newcomer Cody Durden was winless with a loss and a draw under his belt. This win would mean a great start to many more, or so he thought.
On Saturday at UFC Vegas 43, Cody Durden beats Qileng Aori by unanimous decision during the preliminary cards. This would be Durden’s first-ever win in the Octagon, supposedly a very monumental event for any aspiring UFC champion.
During his post-fight interview with Daniel Cormier, he makes a racist remark that sparks controversy and hate among other fighters and fans.
“I knew he was going to be tough but I had to send him back to China, where he came from,”
The arena is filled with boos and you can feel the hate towards Durden even days after the event. You can learn more about this controversial moment in the video below:
