Cory Sandhagen is expected to fight with Song Yadong on September 17th. Sandhagen is coming off two straight losses against Petr Yan and a controversial loss vs T.J. Dillashaw who is now expected to challenge Aljamain Sterling for the Bantamweight title at UFC 279, but Sterling hasn’t signed the contract yet.

Yadong (19-5-1, 1 NC) has a three fight win streak and a win over Sandhagen will bring him closer to the top ranked fighters and potentially challenge for the title in the near future. He is currently ranked 14th and Sandhagen is ranked no.4.
