Cory Sandhagen

Cory Sandhagen is the No. 2 ranked UFC bantamweight champion with a record of 14 wins and two losses. This 29-year-old American fighter is considered one of the main contenders for the title in his weight class. Most likely, he would have already received a title fight, if not for the annoying defeat by Aljamain Sterling, who forced the American to surrender in the first round after a successful choke hold.

However, this did not upset the fighter's plans and he had two bright fights after losing. First, he defeated Marion Moraesh by technical knockout in the second round and in the previous fight he effectively knocked out Frankie Edgar with his knee in the first segment.

TJ Dillashaw

TJ Dillashaw is a two-time UFC champion with a record of 17 wins and four losses. After losing in 2019 to Henry Sejudo, the 35-year-old American was suspended for two years for doping, which cast doubt on his former achievements.

TJ Dillashaw did not enter the octagon for about two and a half years and it is not entirely clear what form he is in, but past performances have demonstrated that he has good striking technique and knockout blow.

Prediction

Cory Sandhagen has trained with his current opponent and knows all his strengths and weaknesses. Frankly, TJ Dillashaw chose the wrong fighter for his return to the octagon. Superiority in anthropometry is completely on the side of the favorite, who has 11 cm in height and 18 cm in the span of the arms.

Of his seven previous victories, Cory Sandhagen scored five ahead of schedule, knocking out opponents in the opening rounds. His powerful striking technique and ability to keep his opponent at a distance in this fight, in our opinion, will play a key role. There is no doubt that his physical form and functional readiness is better than that of his opponent.

We believe that the fight will not last the entire distance and the return of the ex-champion will end in his defeat by knockout. Our prediction is an early victory for Cory Sandhagen. For such an outcome bookmaker 1xBet offers odds of 1.93.
