UFC Vegas 60: Cory Sandhagen vs Song Yadong Prediction:
And although Yadong has been waiting for a chance like this, Sandhagen has to find a new niche outside the top five bantamweights. Seemingly, Yadong has figured out how to bring his evil might to the level of the UFC. It took previous champion Yan to lose his title fight with Sandhagen because of his rock-solid chin. Sandhagen’s high energy level makes him susceptible to taking damage. If his pride holds, he has lost rounds because of it.
Sandhagen has gone the distance in the Octagon twice, earning a 2-2 record with one draw and one loss. Yadong has had a lot of success in front of the judges, but this is his first professional bout lasting the full five rounds. Both gentlemen use unique strategies, all of which are protected by rock-solid chins. Sandhagen should have the upper hand because to his experience against harder opponents, but Yadong will likely win in less than ten rounds.
Prediction: Cory Sandhagen will win the fight.
