Cory Sandhagen v Yadong Song UFC Fight Night Betting Tips & Predictions
Cory ‘The Sandman’ Sandhagen will be looking to end a two-fight losing run when he returns to the Octagon this weekend.
Sandhagen, who has a professional record of 18 fights, 14 wins and four defeats, has lost his last two fights against T.J Dillashaw and Petr Yan.
The American, who is ranked number four, knows he cannot afford to lose a third successive fight if he is to get a shot at the UFC bantamweight belt.
His fight against Yan was for the interim belt, but he fell short as he lost a unanimous points decision in Abu Dhabi at UFC 267 last October.
Yadong Song is ranked number 10 in the bantamweight division, and he has a professional record of 27 fights, 19 wins, six losses, one draw and one no contest.
The Chinese fighter is currently on a three-fight winning streak thanks to victories over Casey Kenney, Julio Arce and Marlon Moraes.
It’s safe to say that this will be Song’s toughest test since making his UFC debut on the Michael Bisping versus Kelvin Gastelum undercard at UFC Fight Night in China in 2017.
Song has a good future ahead of him – he’s only 24 – but I think he will come unstuck against The Sandman.
Sandhagen has six knockout wins, five on points and three by submission. I am backing him to grab his fourth submission win by tapping out The Kung Fu Monkey in the third round.
