UFC: All you need to know ahead of Cory Sandhagen vs Song Yadong

All eyes will be on the bantamweight division in the early hours of Sunday morning when Cory Sandhagen takes on Song Yadong.

After returning to bantamweight, Sandhagen embarked on a four-fight winning streak to emerge as a title contender before his hopes were derailed by Aljamain Sterling in June 2020.

Sandhagen did bounce back when earning victories over Marlon Moraes and Frankie Edgar, sealing successive 'Performance of the Night' bonuses, but he was unable to make it three in a row when losing via split decision against T.J. Dillashaw.

Despite that loss, Sandhagen was still handed the chance to face Petr Yan for the interim bantamweight strap at UFC 267, however, he suffered another defeat by decision.

The 30-year-old, who is ranked No.4, has his sights set on another shot at the title but he'll need to avoid a third successive loss to keep those hopes alive.

And getting back to winning ways isn't likely to prove easy for The Sandman this weekend with the impressive Song standing on the other side of the octagon.

Song has only lost one of his last eight contests when fighting at bantamweight and he's subsequently climbed to No.10 in the division.

His title ambitions are still some way down the line but a win over Sandhagen would undoubtedly strengthen his claims and could even propel him into the top 5.

China's Song is the 17/10 underdog as he looks to continue his winning streak and Sandhagen can be backed at 1/2 to get the victory.
