Cory Sandhagen vs Song Yadong at UFC Vegas 60 was a hell of a fight. Both fighters had no intentions of giving up. Lets have a look at Cory Sandhagen vs Song Yadong fight highlights.
Cory Sandhagen scored a TKO victory over Song Yadong earlier tonight (Saturday, September 17, 2022) at UFC Vegas 60, which aired live on ESPN+ from inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Song Yadong suffered a bad cut above his left eye in the early going, forcing the doctor to call a stoppage to the fight after the fourth round of the main event.
In the first round, Sandhagen was a little more energetic on the feet, but Yadong gained valuable top time and a few good body shots. Early in the second, Yadong applied some pressure until Sandhagen landed a slicing elbow inside.
Sandhagen’s punches reopened the cut. At the end of the third round, there was a lot of blood, and the doctor took another close look. He and the referee, Herb Dean, decided to continue the fight as long as the wound didn’t worsen.
Yadong regained control in the fourth round to regain some momentum, but all of the grappling caused the cut to leak. Sandhagen was able to land his own takedown with one minute remaining, putting Yadong under intense pressure to finish the fight.
Cory Sandhagen vs Song Yadong : Sandhagen Wins the Fight by TKO
After the fourth round, the doctor decided to call off the fight. Sandhagen won by TKO in a bloody and highly competitive bantamweight main event.
The official decision was a fourth-round TKO for Sandhagen, who ended his two-fight losing streak.
Even though Chris Lee gave Sandhagen three rounds to one victory over his opponent, two of the judges actually had the fight tied after two rounds.
However, none of that is important at this point. While it may not have been the conclusive ending he desired, Sandhagen caused the damage that resulted in the stoppage, giving him the victory.
Cory Sandhagen after the fight said – “I hate that it ended that way,”. “I think he deserved a fifth round. I wanted to see the fifth round. I wanted to see the scorecards to see if I was winning or not. That’s what I care about is winning. I won.”
