Get ready for an action-packed matchup as Cory Sandhagen and Rob Font prepare to face off at UFC Fight Night in Nashville. Both fighters are known for their fearless approach in the octagon.
Sandhagen (16-4) has gained a reputation as a future world champion, but has faced setbacks against previous and future UFC champions on three occasions. Despite this, Sandhagen has showcased his skills through decision victories and impressive performances. He now faces Font after a shift in opponents due to an injury, but the objective remains the same – keeping opponents on their toes and overwhelmed.
“I’m able to confuse opponents with my speed and constant changes in footwork and levels,” Sandhagen stated. “It becomes mentally and physically exhausting for them to keep up with my movements. That’s why I’ve been successful in the octagon.”
