Share

Sandhagen and Nurmagomedov are numbers two and nine in the division, respectively. The winner has a great chance of a title fight at the end of 2024. The UFC announced the fight via social media channels.

Main Event

Cory Sandhagen has been one of the best bantamweights in the UFC for a number of years. The American last lost in 2021 when he had to leave the interim title to Petr Yan. Since then he has won three times in a row and managed to beat Rob Font in his most recent match. Sandhagen was actually supposed to fight Umar Nurmagomedov, but the Dagestani was injured.

After not fighting for a year and a half, Nurmagomedov then fought against the unknown Bekzat Almakhan in March of this year because, according to the UFC, there was no one who wanted to take the fight against him. Almakhan started well, but had to bow his head to the ultimately better Nurmagomedov. With this, the fighter from Dagestan took his record to 17-0 and picked up his fifth victory in the UFC. The UFC has now rescheduled the fight that was supposed to take place in Nashville last August.
