UFC Fight Night 210 results: Cory Sandhagen forced to stop vs. Song Yadong


LAS VEGAS – Returning to the cage after an 11-month layoff, Corey Sandhagen managed to cut a nasty punch early on against fellow bantamweight competitor Song Yadong, forcing the attending physician to call off the fight at the end of the fourth frame.

That match topped the UFC Fight Night 210 event on Saturday at the UFC Apex.

Sandhagen moved forward at the start of the match, changing positions and mixing attacks with punches and kicks, as well as testing his opponent’s wrestling defense early on. Halfway through the round, it was Song who was already able to bring the fight to the plate, and briefly slumped to his opponent’s back, but Sandhagen was able to escape back to his feet and reset.

Sandhagen kept his volume high for the remainder of the round, but Song found the mark with a handful of hard punches along the way as well.

Song lunged forward quickly to start the second, carrying large punches while Sandhagen was trying to stay mobile outside. Song wobbled briefly with Sandhagen with a clean shot from the left early in the frame, though he recovered quickly and appeared to damage tightly with his elbows well placed.
