Cody Stevens Loses Vision But Stays Focused On MMA
Professional fighter Cody Stevens will never see again out of his right eye.
A freak injury during his last MMA fight in August resulted in a ruptured globe that could not be fixed through a series of surgeries.
While the tragic impairment has left Cody legally blind in his right eye, his hunger for training and competition has never wavered. He continues to work out full-time at his training facility in Mansfield where he coaches a variety of athletes in mixed martial arts and even plans to compete professionally at grappling tournaments in the near future.
Stevens has also teamed up with BCM Promotions president Bob Marshall to help with operations of the recently formed MMA league. Marshall intends to adopt many of the principles put in place by Mansfield-based Revelation Fight Organization, which closed up shop at the beginning of 2018 after becoming the leading promotion in the state of Ohio.
BCM will put on their next show on Saturday, April 6 at the Masonic Temple in Mansfield where “Fight Night 5” will feature a number of quality amateur fighters, including a headliner with top-ranked flyweights in the region. Doors will open at 5 pm with the event getting underway at 6, with a total of 14 fights on the card.
