In the main event of UFC Fight Island 5, Cory Sandhagen knocked out Marlon moraes and he could fight for the title. In Abu Dhabi, on “the island of struggle”, the victor went home with a huge smile and left a clear message for Dana White, the president of the organization. After knocking out one of the best in the division in the second round, now he only thinks about the title. Therefore, the aforementioned will go after the footsteps of the contenders.
Yes, that’s definitely my plan. Moraes gave me a really good low kick so I’m trying to do my best to keep him moving so he doesn’t get weak and I don’t let my body get too weak. But I mean, that’s the plan. I want to make my rival feel my power during the duration of the fight, not only at the end of it, “the American fighter began by explaining.
Adding to his previous words, Cory He also told how he is physically: “Just when I can go back to training, not the hardest in the world, but if I could be at 80 percent for the next month and a half and feel a little if these guys are going to fight or not, especially today with the coronavirus and all that jazz. Weird things are going to happen all the time, so I’ll definitely stay at 80 percent. “
“I understand that I am the number one guy who would jump into that place, so I’m not going to be stupid and just let it fly because I don’t want to train. I will definitely stay prepared. I have no problem, or my ego has no problem, with being a backup for that fight. If either of the two is not there, I already warned that they can call me, “he explained, knowing that Petr Yan Y Aljamain Sterling faces will be seen soon.
Want to go for the title
To close with his words, Cory Sandhagen He mentioned the two fighters he aims to win in his near future: «I would feel very bad if they did me already Yan and they did that to Sterling. That said, it’s a dog-eating sport, so if they give me that opportunity, I’ll take it. But I think it should be Sterling and Yan. When that’s set aside, honestly, I’ve been doing it for a year or two. “
