Cory Sandhagen, the former interim title challenger and currently ranked #4 at 135 pounds, is preparing for his second main event of the year. After an impressive victory against Marlon Vera in the UFC San Antonio headliner, Sandhagen is ready to take on a new challenge. On August 5, he will headline the UFC Nashville card against the undefeated Umar Nurmagomedov.

A Dominant Year for Sandhagen

Sandhagen started the year with a dominant performance against Marlon Vera. He controlled and dominated ‘Chito’ across five rounds, showcasing his skills and securing a comfortable decision victory. This win came after his successful main event bout against Song Yadong in September.

Sandhagen’s Next Opponent

Despite his impressive form and position in the top five, Sandhagen’s next opponent is not from the divisional top 10. Umar Nurmagomedov, with an undefeated record, poses a significant challenge to Sandhagen. Many question the matchup, underestimating Sandhagen’s grappling skills and overestimating the Dagestani style of wrestling.

The Battle of Styles

The upcoming fight between Sandhagen and Nurmagomedov is a clash of styles. Sandhagen’s well-rounded skills and ability to control the fight will be tested against Nurmagomedov’s wrestling prowess. Sandhagen believes that his grappling skills are often overlooked and plans to prove his doubters wrong.

Closing Remarks

Cory Sandhagen’s next fight against Umar Nurmagomedov is set to be an exciting battle between two talented fighters. Sandhagen’s dominant performances and impressive skills make him a formidable opponent. Will he be able to overcome Nurmagomedov’s undefeated streak? Only time will tell.
