UFC Fight Night card: Marlon Vera vs Cory Sandhagen and all bouts tonight
Marlon Vera and Cory Sandhagen will bid to become the UFC’s next title challenger at bantamweight this weekend, when they clash in a Fight Night main event.
Vera has won four fights in a row, with head-kick knockouts of former champions Dominick Cruz and Frankie Edgar punctuating that run. Meanwhile, Sandhagen has had tougher luck against ex-champions in recent times, losing narrow decisions to Petr Yan and TJ Dillashaw.
However, the American bounced back in August with a TKO of Song Yadong, and he will look to build on that result on Saturday, as he takes on Ecuador’s “Chito” Vera.
In the co-main event, former champion Holly Holm takes on Yana Santos in a women’s bantamweight clash.
