Everything you need to know about how to watch Sandhagen vs. Dillashaw at UFC Fight Night on Saturday.
TJ Dillashaw makes his long-awaited return to the Octagon after a two-year suspension for PED use… and he’s jumping in the heat again.
Dillashaw faces No.2 bantamweight Cory Sandhagen at the UFC Fight Night main event in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
“They tried to offer me fights that weren’t in the top five, and I said no. I want someone in the top five, ”Dillashaw said during a recent episode of Food Truck Diaries with Brendan Schaub.
“Dude I’m coming back. I’m 35. I want my belt back. I’ve never lost it. I’m here to prove I’m the best in the world, and what better way to do it then get back to the top “Cory Sandhagen is a great opponent. I’ve trained a lot with him. He’s a great athlete, but it’s a big fight for me.”
Dillashaw last fought in January 2019, when he suffered a first round TKO at the hands of Henry Cejudo. He then began a two-year suspension for testing positive for recombinant human erythropoietin (EPO).
He will face a game of Sandhagen who rebounded from a submission first round loss to Aljamain Sterling in June 2020 with back-to-back wins over Marlon Moraes and Frankie Edgar in October and February, respectively.
Will Dillashaw immediately make a splash by finishing Sandhagen or will “The Sandman” get the best of his former training partner?
