WATCH: Cody Pfister retirement speech after Bellator 174 submission win
Tonight during the Bellator 174 prelims, Cody Pfister made his Bellator MMA debut, defeating Jonathan Gary via submission in the first round. Immediately following the bout, Pfister let the MMA world know that he would be hanging up the gloves for good, announcing his retirement.
UPDATE: Cody’s retirement would be short lived…… extremely short lived as he returned to fighting just six months later. He picked up a win over Charles Bennett at Fist Fight Night 2. Pfister picked up a win there and then fought yet again one month later at Kunlun Fight MMA 16 where he defeated Haotian Wu by way of unanimous decision.
