UFC Vegas 60: Sandhagen vs. Yadong predictions

UFC Vegas 60 lost one prelim fight due to a weight miss but the show continues on at The Apex in Las Vegas.

The Aspen Ladd vs. Sara McMann fight is off for the third time, this time due to Ladd coming in two pounds over the bantamweight limit.

But everyone else made weight successfully, including the main event participants Corey Sandhagen and Song Yadong.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card, but first a word from Dana White.

MAIN CARD (7PM ET/4PM PT)

ANTHONY HERNANDEZ (9-2-0, 1NC) VS. MARC-ANDRE BARRIAULT (14-5-0, 1NC)

UFC vegas 60

Andrews: Hernandez likes to use the chokes, while Barriault has a number of knockouts. If Marc-Andre can keep it standing and maintain distance, he can pile up the points. But I think Hernandez will close the distance and cinch up the Guillotine choke.

Andrews Prediction: Anthony Hernandez via submission

TANNER BOSER (20-8-1) VS. RODRIGO NASCIMENTO (8-1-0, 1NC)

UFC vegas 60

Andrews: Nascimento will enjoy a weight advantage of over 30 pounds. But Boser knocked out OSP in his last fight and Nascimento was dropped by Chris Daukaus, a guy physically similar to Boser. So, I ‘m going with Boser to get the TKO.

Andrews Prediction: Tanner Boser via TKO 

JOSEPH PFYER (9-2-0) VS. ALEN AMEDOVSKI (8-3-0)

Andrews: This is a nice setup fight for Pfyer to introduce himself to the fanbase that didn’t see him on DWCS. Let’s see if he can finish him.

Andrews Prediction: Joseph Pyfer via TKO

ANDRE FILI (21-9-0, 1NC) VS. BILL ALGEO (16-6-0) 

UFC vegas 60

Andrews: Tough one to call. Fili has been in the UFC since 2013, but lately has not won a fight since 2020, a stretch of three fights (0-2-0, 1NC). Algeo is replacing Lando but is coming off a good win. Algeo pulls it off.

Andrews Prediction: Bill Algeo via TKO

CHIDI NJOUKANI (22-7-0, 1NC) VS. GREGORY RODRIGUES (12-4-0) 

Andrews: Good fight as both fighters come into the contest on win streaks. I thunk Rodrigues breaks through here after some early trouble.

Andrews Prediction: Gregory Rodrigues via TKO

MAIN EVENT 

#4 COREY SANDHAGEN (14-4-0) VS. #10 SONG YADONG (19-6-1, 1NC) 

Andrews: Sandhagen is a big bantamweight and a good striker but Yadong breaks through here in the late rounds to eke out the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Song Yadong via SD

Enjoy the fights.
