The bantamweight contenders will square off in an exciting main event on Saturday when Cory Sandhagen and Song Yadong officiate this weekend’s UFC Fight Night.
Sandhagen (14-4) last fought 11 months ago, losing to Petr Yan on points in a Fight of the Year contender to crown an interim champion at 135 pounds. It was a second straight defeat for the 30-year-old American, who was controversially highlighted by former defending champion TJ Dillashaw last June.
Meanwhile, Yadong (19-6-1, 1 no contest) is entering a three-fight win streak at the UFC Apex Institute in Las Vegas this Saturday after he last competed in March when he defeated former title challenger Marlon Moraes in the first round stopped .
The 24-year-old Chinese will look to jump the rankings with a win here by entering the main event in 10th place at bantamweight, while Sandhagen is No. 4 at 235lbs.
