(PRESS RELEASE) -- World Series of Fighting is proud to announce
the addition of Cody
Bollinger (14-2) to the company's bantamweight roster.
The 22-year-old Californian signed a multi-fight deal with World
Series of Fighting and is expected to debut for the promotion in
"Cody is an extremely talented fighter, and we're thrilled to have
him on board with our company," World Series of Fighting President
Sefo said. "Cody has recently endured some tough times in his
career, but we believe he is highly skilled and has a bright future
in front of him. I can't wait to see what he can accomplish in the
World Series of Fighting decagon."
Despite his young age, Bollinger has been competing professionally
for seven years. Bollinger's father signed a waiver for him to make
his professional debut in 2006 at just 15 years old. He's since
built an impressive 14-2 mark, including five wins by submission
and another four by knockout.
Most recently, Bollinger was a contestant on "The Ultimate Fighter
18," where he defeated Rafael de
Freitas to earn his way on to the show. However, he failed to
make weight for his next fight with Anthony
Gutierrez and was eliminated from the show.
"It is not every day that one finds himself living a dream that
turns into a nightmare," Bollinger wrote in his Revgear Sports
blog. I knew heading into the show that this was going to be the
hardest weight cut of my career. ... I missed weight and have zero
excuses about it, I didn't adjust well enough to the situation I
was put in and paid for that tremendously."
Bollinger will now get a second chance to make a first
"When one dream ends, you make the shift to chase a new one,"
