Cory Sandhagen vs. Umar Nurmagomedov to Headline UFC Fight Night Abu Dhabi

UFC Fight Night Abu Dhabi

In an electrifying showdown, UFC’s bantamweight division will witness a headline clash between Cory Sandhagen and Umar Nurmagomedov at UFC Fight Night Abu Dhabi on August 3rd. This high-stakes matchup presents Nurmagomedov with a golden opportunity to ascend the UFC rankings.

Originally slated to face off last August, Nurmagomedov was sidelined due to a shoulder injury, postponing the anticipated showdown. Sandhagen, showcasing his prowess, dominated Rob Font in his absence, further solidifying his status as a force to be reckoned with.

Sandhagen, currently ranked sixth in the USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie bantamweight rankings, has been on a remarkable streak, triumphing over Song Yadong, Marlon Vera, and Font in consecutive main events. While eager for the challenge, Sandhagen had reservations about traveling halfway around the globe to face Nurmagomedov.

With both fighters poised for glory, fans can anticipate a thrilling five-round battle that promises to deliver fireworks at #UFCAbuDhabi.
