In his first event of 2020, Cody was entered in both the gi and nogi disciplines.The gi category didn’t go as he’d hoped for when he had to have a medic attend him due to being dropped from his opponent’s shoulders. But after a break he went into the nogi event winning his first fight 9-0, and in the final he won via an armbar triangle to take the gold medal.
