Cory Sandhagen certainly continued his winning streak, but what was the toll? It’s undeniable that Sandhagen merits a go at the UFC bantamweight title, yet the question remains – did his cautious approach, relying heavily on wrestling to clinch a decision win against Rob Font at UFC Nashville, impact his standing negatively?
In the fresh edition of Moving Forward, MMA Hook’s Alexander K. Lee, alongside guest host José Youngs, explore if Sandhagen’s performance was adequate to catapult him to the top of the contender list or if he’ll be sidelined irrespective of who triumphs in the fight between Aljamain Sterling and Sean O’Malley at UFC 292. Likewise, they ponder over the powerful Tatiana Suarez, who’s fast gaining recognition as the undisputed champ of the strawweight division. The conversation also delves into potential matches for main card victors such as Dustin Jacoby, Diego Lopes, Tanner Boser, and Ludovit Klein.
