“Sandman” Cory Sandhagen rising Bantamweight at 28 years old is one of my favorite rising fighters in the UFC and in the MMA world. Accomplished the hell out of me defeating Raphael Assuncao at UFC 241.
Next fight for the Sandman was against Frankie Edgar but Frankie Edgar would head to South Korea, Fighting Chan Sung Jung.
Cory fighting Frankie Edgar is a huge fight for him, Winning a fight against a fan favorite, Legend who had incredible fights with Gray Maynard, Benson Henderson.
Frankie Edgar can have a incredible fight with Cory “Sandman” Sandhagen now but that fight is over now….
Sandhagen vs Sterling
Accepted a fight against Aljamain Sterliing on May 16th but thanks to the sweetheart coronavirus that fight is on HOLD.
Sandhagen vs Sterling would be one of the best fights ever in the UFC Bantamweight Division. Contender fight for the Bantamweight Title.
Sandhagen sees a fight with Sterling opposite a matchup like Yan vs. Moraes as a de facto tournament of sorts to determine the next No. 1 contender at bantamweight. If that’s how things play out, Sandhagen definitely likes his chances to stay on that timeline to fight for the belt in 2020.https://www.mmafighting.com/2020/5/8/21230297/cory-sandhagen-not-sold-on-petr-yan-hype-confident-he-will-become-champ-if-he-faces-henry-cejudo
“Amazingly, that card is a month away and we still don’t know what the main event will be. Will it be Amanda Nunes vs. Felicia Spencer, or something bigger? One fight that has been discussed for that card is Aljamain Sterling vs. Cory Sandhagen, which is a potential No. 1 contender fight at 135, but it hasn’t been signed yet.”https://www.mmamania.com/2020/5/7/21249796/midnight-mania-aljamain-sterling-cory-sandhagen-june-6-ufc-espn
