The second consecutive UFC event without spectators in their own arena “UFC APEX” in Las Vegas (Nevada, USA) will be held in the coming weekend. In the night of Sunday CET 250 kicks off the UFC with a title fight at the head.
Another great fight in the easiest weight, and here the fighting tops of the division – sterling and Sandhagen.
Sterling is an excellent series of victories over Brett Jones, Cody Tamanna, Jimmy Rivera and Pedro Munoz. Many fans believe sterling has earned the right to fight for Henry Cejudo left vacant title, but for the belt of UFC fight Peter, Jan and josé Aldo. Probably the new champion will then face the winner of the upcoming battle.
Sandhagen in the UFC have won each of their five matches in 2019, his victims were such men as Mario Bautista, John Lineker and Raphael assunção. This year, he could get the most significant “scalp” to your collection. At the January show UFC Fight Night 166 he was scheduled to meet with Frankie Edgar, but Edgar was moved to held a month earlier Fight Night event UFC 165, where he got in a fight with “the Korean zombie” Jung Chan-Sleep and Sandhagen eventually left with nothing.
Forecast for battle
On paper the fight looks very equal. Sandhagen established himself as a good striker with underrated ground. Sterling – star wrestling on a collegiate level, at the beginning of his career in the UFC he mostly relied on his ground game and athleticism, but in recent years have greatly tightened the “seems” and now seems to be a balanced fighter. In the battle against Rivera and Munoz, he showed that he is able to combine strikes with takedowns. Suppose that Streling excellent physical condition and the fact that Sandhagen has not faced a fighter of the same level as “the Funk Master”, will play a crucial role in the fight.
