At UFC Vegas 18, Cory Sandhagen got a great victory and now he would have his chance for him Title. In what could be the knockout of the year, against Frankie Edgar, he left a great new image. The renowned American fighter killed one of the legends of Mixed Martial Arts, after a flying knee that ended up on the chin of his rival. Therefore, it is now in the footsteps of another prestigious name, to be New Star.
Starting with his words, Sandhagen He stressed: “I am a different monster than before I fought Aljamain Sterling. He taught me some lessons. I know Petr Yan has been talking about fighting TJ Dillashaw after fighting Aljamain Sterling in UFC 259, and that’s if he even wins that fight. That is rubbish to me. Fight me, I’m the toughest guy next to Aljamain. If Aljamain wins, I owe him a nap.
He’s going to have that nap. The winner of those two is eliminated by me in July. It is kill or be killed. I heard an interview where Frankie said he really enjoys fighting and that’s what keeps him motivated. That is not where I am. I am in a different place. I come for the legacy, I come for the world titles. I come to be the king. That’s why I’m here and I’m trying to hurt people when I’m there with them, “he said.
At the same time, Cory He stressed: “Win the belt in July, defend it before the end of the year. I let him get a little closer. I’m longer and I know I look long, so I can corner these guys in my range without them knowing. Most of the time they are in the range where I can hit them and sometimes I do. I just corner them in a range where I could hit him and he didn’t know that. I was only inches away from finishing and then I jumped.
What he said before
“That seems a lack of respect for the sport. I have been working. I have been working these last two years. I’m ready for the belt. I’m glad it was him and not me. This is not a game. It doesn’t feel good to see someone crawl and be groggy, especially when it’s Frankie Edgar, who everyone loves, including me. I really don’t think I still know much about this sport, to be honest with you, “he dictated. Cory Sandhagen, defending the legendary fighter.
