Cody McKenzie Wiki Update Wiki

Cody McKenzie was born in Alaska and took his first MMA fight when he was a sophomore in high school and after that knew MMA was what he wanted to do. McKenzie would win his first fight in 2007 by TKO and pick up his second win by Triangle Choke the same year. He would then go on a tear and win his next nine fights all by guillotine choke. He actually does the choke a little different than most people do and started calling it "The McKenzietine"

McKenzie would try out for The Ultimate Fighter Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck and make it into the house finishing Amir Khillah with another guillotine victory. He would follow that up with yet another guillotine win over Marc Stevens when he caught him in the move only 18 seconds into the fight. McKenzie would then lose in the quarter-final fight against Nam Phan.

The Ultimate Fighter 12

Episode 1 McKenzie def. Amir Khillah by Guillotine Choke at 2:15 of Round 1

Episode 6 McKenzie def. Marc Stevens by Guillotine Choke at 0:17 of Round 1

Episode 9 Nam Phan def. McKenzie by TKO (Punches) at 2:54 of Round 2

He would still get a chance at the UFC but would drop his first two fights to Vagner "Ciara" Rocha and Yves "Thugjitsu Master" Edwards. He would notch another guillotine win over Marcus "The Prospect" LeVesseur before dropping his next fight to Chad "Money" Mendes. McKenzie would then pick up a much needed win with his first decision win of his career over Leonard "Bad Boy" Garcia at UFC 159.  McKenzie then faced Sam "Hands Of Stone" Stout in a lightweight bout on December 14, 2013 at UFC on Fox 9.  He lost the fight via unanimous decision and was subsequently released from the promotion on March 26th, 2014. 

McKenzie's next fight is at the Battle for the Border 3 event on April 12th, 2014 and his opponent will be Mark Dobie at a catchweight of 180 lbs.  McKenzie defeated Dobie via submission. However he would lose his next two fights.

On 18 December, 2014, McKenzie took to Twitter to announce his retirement. The tweet read "I'm done fighting I would call it retiring but I never made no money so yea I quit."
