‘High level and violent’: Pros react to Cory Sandhagen’s bloody stoppage win at UFC Vegas 60


Cory Sandhagen was very likely in a must-win situation in the main event of UFC Vegas 60 and he came through in a big way.

On the heels of back-to-back losses, Sandhagen faced surging 24-year-old contender Song Yadong in the main event of Saturday’s UFC Fight Night card at the APEX. As expected, the fight was intense and competitive. But, the moment that changed the outcome came when Yadong suffered a severe cut above his left eye.

Finally, after the fourth round ended, the cage side physician — who gave him chances to continue throughout the main event despite the horrendous looking cut — stopped the bout before the fifth and final round could begin, giving Sandhagen the much-needed TKO victory.

Here’s what their fellow UFC fighters had to say about some of the main card action at Saturday’s UFC Vegas 60 event.
