UFC 250: Aljamain Sterling takes on Cory Sandhagen
Two top UFC bantamweight contenders will be squaring off at UFC 250 in Las Vegas.
Aljamain Sterling (18-3-0), currently ranked No. 2, and Cory Sandhagen (12-1-0) will meet in the octagon with the winner remaining in the title shot conversation for the championship, recently vacated by the retirement of Henry Cejudo.
Sterling, 30, is currently enjoying a four fight win streak, including a decision win over Pedro Munoz in his last bout at UFC 238 last June.

Since debuting in the UFC in January 2018, all Sandhagen, 28, has done is go undefeated in five bouts in the octagon. His last win was a decision over Raphael Assuncao at UFC 241 in August 2019. His once broken thumb seems to have completely healed, in no small part from getting his hand raised.
