Named the likely rival of Marlon Vera

UFC bantamweight number four, Marlon Vera, could take on the division’s top-five Corey Sandhagen next.

Ariel Helwani, a well-known sports columnist, announced the development of the duel, scheduled for the first quarter of next year.

In August of this year, Marlon “Chito” Vera scored a fourth victory in a row, defeating former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz by knockout in the fourth round.

Cory Sandhagen got his career back on track in September by winning a TKO over Song Yadong at the end of the fourth round, whom the doctor didn’t release into the final round. Prior to that, Sandhagen lost decisions to T.J. Dillashaw and Petr Yan.
