DWCS Fighter Spotlight: Cody Brundage

A nominee for The Scrap’s Regional Fighter of the Year, Brundage has fought the same guy back-to-back recently. The first, was a bloodbath that went to a decision. However, the second finished in the first round and saw Brundage earn a shiny gold belt around his waist. He can finish the fight early, and can go the distance. But one thing that is always certain, a Cody Brundage fight is always exciting.
