This weekend we see the matchup between two of the most high-level bantamweights in the UFC. On one side there’s a young contender looking for another big name win to take one step closer to a title shot, his opponent also looking to get back into contention after a lengthy suspension.
Cory Sandhagen, the number 2 ranked UFC bantamweight is currently riding a 2 fight win streak after stopping the likes of Marlon Moraes (2nd round TKO) and Frankie Edgar (1st round KO). With a record of 7-1 in the UFC with his only loss coming at the hands of current champion Aljamain Sterling last June, Sandhagen looks to bounce back in a big way. A BJJ brown belt Cory has shown versatility in the stand-up department as well by proof of his 28-second dismantling of the former legend Edgar.
Tj Dillashaw, once the best fighter in his division, high-level striker and wrestler mix that developed from years of learning and fighting against some of the best fighters the weight class had to offer. After a two year absence from competition, former UFC bantamweight champion Tj Dillashaw is preparing for his anticipated return this weekend, he has little regard for peoples opinions as his sole focus is on winning and regaining his crown.
