After a TKO win over Song Yadong at UFC Vegas 60 Cory Sandhagen is ready for any opponent that comes his way. Cory Sandhagen won the fight over Yadong after the referee stopped the fight as Sandhagen smashed Yadong with a right elbow opening up the left eyebrow part.
Cory Sandhagen while talking to the reporters after the fight vs Song Yadong was asked about the next opponent that he would probably wanna face.
No, the state of the division, right? You just said the ones who make sense, but are any of the names preferable over the others, or is it just about a date on the calendar and whoever can show up?
No, not really. I think, as a martial artist, I’ve tried not to have many opinions about anything. You know, I live in an area where I just more or less try to go with the flow and let life, you know, give me opportunities and I take them. So Marlo Vera or Merab are the obvious names.
Both of them posed. Most are very different challenges for completely opposite fighters, so I don’t really care, man. You know, give me one of those for Christmas.
