With the dust settled on UFC 279 (and all the chaos it brought) the promotion is ready to move onto the next show. This weekend, live from the UFC APEX, is UFC Vegas 60: Sandhagen vs. Song. And this one is for the hardcores.
The main event is Cory Sandhagen, who is desperate to get over the hump at bantamweight and contest for the title, and Song Yadong who has quietly made himself a threat in the division. Outside of these two there’s not a lot of name value on the card, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any fun fights.
Also on the main card is Chidi Njokuani vs. Gregory Rodrigues and Andre Fili vs. Bill Algeo. Heavyweights Tanner Boser and Rodrigo Nascimento will also go at it.
The prelims are headlined by Damon Jackson vs. Pat Sabatini. Below them are former headliners Aspen Ladd and Sara McMann. Undefeated Mexican prospect Daniel Zellhuber is also scheduled to appear. He’s matched up with Trey Ogden.
Before these fighters get a chance to make their mark on the card they’ll have to get through the weigh-in process unscathed. It’s unlikely that we’ll see a repeat of last week’s shuffling, but you never know in this sport.
