He has been in the UFC since June 2-17 and lost only twice in the seven matches given to him. Heading to his next match, he took on Jose Aldo in UFC 245 back in December 2019.

Cory Sandhagen

Cory Sandhagen is at his prime at 28 years old and this American fighter flew all the way from Aurora, Colorado. He stands at 5-foot-11 and this natural featherweight will go down in weight for this match and will represent the Elevation Fight Team. Sandhagen now holds an impressive 12-2 professional record with four knockouts, three submissions and five decision victories. He has been in the UFC since January 2018 and has won five of the six fights in the organization. In his last match, he went up against Aljamain Sterling in UFC 250 just this June 2020.
