Taylor Lapilus returning to UFC in June

“Double Impact” will make his return to the octagon. Frenchman Taylor Lapilus (32 years old, 19 wins, 4 losses), who competes in the bantamweight category (bantamweight, 57-61 kg) in the UFC, will fight American Cody Stamann (34 years old, 21 wins, 6 losses , 1 draw) on the night of June 8 to 9 during a UFC Fight Night in Louisville (United States).

The opportunity for the Habs to bounce back after their points defeat against Farid Basharat in January in Las Vegas. To do this, he will have to beat an experienced fighter who has been playing in the UFC since 2017. Stamann alternates, on the other hand, between good and less good results. After a promising start (three victories in a row between July 2017 and March 2018), the American is struggling to win against big names in his category. For example, he lost against Aljamain Sterling, former bantamweight champion (but not at the time of their confrontation) or against Merab Dvalishvili, current number 1 in the category. He has also lost four of his last six fights.

New opportunity for Lapilus

Arriving at the UFC in 2015, Taylor Lapilus has already had two lives in the UFC. The first between April 2015 and September 2016 ended with a positive balance sheet (3 victories, 1 defeat) but considered insufficient by the organization which had not renewed his contract, judging his style too boring. The second began seven years later, in September 2023, when Lapilus made his comeback at UFC Paris 2, dominating Irishman Caolan Loughran by unanimous decision. But he was unable to continue, being beaten a few months later by Farid Basharat in January.
