Cory Sandhagen

Sandhagen (17-4 MMA) entered the contest sporting a two-fight winning streak, his most previous being a decision victory over Marlon Vera. Prior to that, ‘The Sandman’ had earned a TKO victory over Song Yadong in September of 2022.

Meanwhile, Rob Font (20-7 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since April’s UFC 287 event, where he scored a first-round TKO victory over Adrian Yanez. That finish had put Font back into the win column, as he had previously suffered back-to-back decision losses to Jose Aldo and Marlon Vera respectively.

Tonight’s UFC Nashville main event did not result in the fire fight most fans were hoping for. Cory Sandhagen utilized his grappling skills to keep Rob Font pinned on the canvas for the majority of their twenty-five-minute affair. While it wasn’t the most exciting performance, it was a strong showing for ‘The Sandman’.
