UFC is back in Abu Dhabi’s Yas Bay Area, Fight Island For UFC 267!
For Petr Yan this is very familiar territory as he defeated Jose Aldo at UFC 251 in Fight Island which allowed him to gain short lived glory as the bantamweight champ before losing to a controversial yet correct DQ loss to Aljamain Sterling at UFC 259. The man standing in his way to reclaiming his title is Cory Sandhagen, a brash American who has the flair for dramatic knockouts, one being a flying knee to the head of Frankie Edgar, who was knocked out before hitting the canvass head first.
Before facing Petr Yan in UFC 276, Sandhagen halted the quick rise of Marlon Moraes with a spinning heel kick to the head for a KO victory, and also might have ended Frankie Edgar’s time in the bantamweight division with that memorable KO.
