Cody Brundage says referees are not needed for his UFC Denver fight against Abdul Razak Alhassan.

Brundage is set for his second fight in 2024 after losing to Bo Nickal by submission at UFC 300. Although he lost that fight, Brundage believes it was a good learning experience for him.

“I just have to be more patient and calm. I was really aggressive and I went at him hard, but that put me in situations that I didn't need to be in. It was a cool experience, UFC 300 will be talked about for a long time, it was cool to be a part of it,” Brundage said on Just Scrap Radio on

Cody Brundage returns to UFC Denver on Saturday, a fight in his hometown. In addition to fighting at home, he will also face Abdul Razak Alhassan, who Brundage knows is dangerous. But these dangerous fights are what excites Brundage so much.

“He fought at the first UFC event I went to in Detroit. I saw him knock out Homasi. He's a beast, I'm a fan of his, he's a fast starter, I'm a fast starter, I think the fans should be excited for this fight. It's an exciting fight because neither of us likes to go too long and I think there's going to be chaos for sure,” Brundage added.

Ultimately, Cody Brundage believes he can succeed with his wrestling and is confident that he will defeat Alhassan in the end.

“I think the key for me is to be calm and patient. I can't get reckless because then it's 50-50. If you get reckless, I'm not saying I'm going to lose every time, but that gives him the best chance to win. Just by being patient and mixing the martial arts, I'm going to get him out of there. If I mix the martial arts well, I think I'll find a way to get him out of there,” Brundage added.

If Brundage defeats Alhassan at UFC Denver, the goal is to get a new contract and get back on his feet quickly.

“Hopefully I get another contract, 5-5 in the UFC. I don't want to fight out my contract, I want a new contract. Hopefully a new contract and two more fights this year,” Brundage concluded.
