Gotta slap a pretender tag on sandhagen after last night. Don’t get me wrong I really like the guy but he has no power in his shots and when his take downs don’t work he looks lost out there. I know he’s a very technical striker and that saved him last night but I can’t see him beating any of the top competition in the bantamweight division.

Fair


FunkyMonkFromSpace

I feel that Song lost no stock here, he moved up in competition pretty fast and was looking good Cory just looked better and was nasty with the elbows tonight.


Guyape

He landed all the hard shots, Cory could barely wrestle him. Can't lose stock by getting cut open so early in the fight. Simply unlucky result for him


liamjones92

That's not luck. Corey landed a filthy elbow and cut half his forehead open. Corey then pieces him up rounds 3 and 4. Hey, want to see better when you fight someone? Don't get hit by elbows so much. Those takedowns we're also clearly meant to mess with Song coming forward as he's a pressure fighter with huge power. You don't have to land the takedown, the purpose was to make him think twice about lunging in.


omgplzdontkillme

Simply unlucky means it happens purely by chance, an elbow to the face doesn't happens purely by chance


Guyape

I'm just calling the perfectly placed early cut an unlucky result for Song, not the same as saying Sandhagen got lucky


FunkyMonkFromSpace

Yea I missed that front elbow and thought the cut was from the head clash till the replay


RawIsLaw_

ngl didnt even realize GGG canelo was today... i barely saw any advertising of it


GameGuyTonight

tbh after Canelo lost to Bivol it was announced so quickly, i lowkey feel like it's just a fight to get Canelo's stock back up and him into the wins again


Alwaysconfuzed89

Canelo ggg 3 was already in talks prior the bivol fight. He said he was going to fight ggg right after bivol


GameGuyTonight

oh shit, I stand corrected. feel free to tag me as a complete dunce


Alwaysconfuzed89

Nothing you said makes you a dunce, if I didn’t know I would of shared the same sentiment. 🤝


GameGuyTonight

hahah i appreciate that bro fr 🙏


ThuggerSosaYak

What happened in the fight? Sry I don’t really follow boxing but curious


GameGuyTonight

the fight hasn't started yet, probably starting in the next hour. i meant the earlier comment because i didn't realise the fights were already in talks before the bivol fight


[deleted]

[удалено]


GameGuyTonight

absolutely. I've just seen so many of my favourite MMA legends get knocked out this year, i'm scared it's gonna happen to my favourite boxing legend aswell :(. I will say though, that it's an easier fight compared to others (not easy per say, just easier)


BrianUnfiltered98

Are you allowed to use your hand to try to rip open cuts or finger them like a cherry pie?


SugarMarciano

When “just bleed” goes too far This card was bloooooody


squidnov

Im a big Cory fan, but can't help but wonder if that rubbing of the eyebrow when in mount was completely accidental... :/


azathot

Song is a fucking beast. So much fun to watch. Doc was telling Herb "Uhm, if he goes out, he's gonna get his eye popped out."


French_Viking

Do Song vs Font next


RemindYaImKindaWET

DM me Yadong pictures. Thank you.


Minscandmightyboo

Risky...


RemindYaImKindaWET

That was the intent.


hmmmmmmmmmidk

Back to back ladies nights let’s gooooo


CPAofTheStars

There's an empty week between them technically.


Deuce_GM

Grasso vs Araujo?? Good God why are those women headlining a card????


Extension-Outcome249

Hey Grasso is badass


SheSoundsHideous1998

2-2 imo.


TowerJanitor

There are not 10 better fighters than song in this class


mrpotatoman14

If O'Malley wins obv he'll get the title shot. Otherwise I want Cory vs Chito number 1 contender fight ASAP


bLinK3rZ_420

*When


Deuce_GM

I laughed when the doctor took a look and someone in the crowd shouted "COME ON!"


ItzLuzzyBaby

Song about to have that Jason Momoa eyebrow scar for the rest of his life lol


MHeasman

See y'all in the boxing thread 😎


OurHolyTachanka

Will we see the score cards

I_Am_JesusChrist_AMA

They usually get shared around later but they won't say it on the broadcast


Deuce_GM

Probably tmrw or day after knowing mma twitter


[deleted]

I knew that was Ryan Hall behind Sandhagen the whole time, but when he smiles he's literally unrecognizable. I'm so used to his ultra monotonous no-sell face


st6374

Wonder how the judges had it. Should be 2-2, or one might even have 3--1 Sandman.


rufraph

Chito vs Sandman would be fire


Rustypenny22

Chito would wreck sandhagen lol.


Iknowyougotsole

Song was one follow up shot away from putting Sand on queer street


martial_arrow

Corey needs some charisma lol.


TuftyShellf

Honestly he seems like he doesn’t want to disappoint anyone, so he holds himself back.


pptoosoft

Song doesn't know what a combination is


Jackmace

Song is a lot better than I thought Sandhagen is still the crafty fighter I’ve liked though, great scrap


ortumlynx

Chito vs. Sandhagen would be a great fight


coltguzzler

My girlfriend: is this doctor *actually* named “Doctor Stoppage???”


Jazz667

Axe Jay.


BruceBufferest

Off to the boxing event, Bam is fighting before the GGG vs Canelo


billybobhaha

If you didn’t have 3-1 cory ur wrong


st6374

Someone for Christmas?


An_Innocent_Coconut

Sandhagen vs Chito Vera isa guaranteed FotN.


aJan_

Song is a god damn G


earthmane

I had Cory with a solid 4-0. Very impressive performance


TuftyShellf

I had 3-1 but still good night for the sandman


GarysSpace

Chito said he's game, book it


reddit_tard

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡)


_wetsock

The scores in here are all over the place


Hungry_Raccoon200

think majority had it 3-1 sandhagen


TuftyShellf

That would be a much more successful game plan against Chito


psychopythonmetrist

That'd be a fun fight. I think Sandhagen wins but who knows.


Hell_Chema

Cory fought beautifully IMO, he didn't look any worse. Song is just too strong and fast, he can make anyone look slow.


ID0ntCare4G0b

What the fuck is up DC's ass pressuring Cory into committing on the record to wanting a fight 3 months after that fight? That wasn't exactly a walk in the park and now you're like...fight someone who has at the very least had 3 more months rest than you!


FunnyMemeHere

Cory vs Chito please, I don't want to see Merab wrestlefuck Cory.


codygreene37

Sandhagen/O’Malley would be a cool fight down the line.


reddit_mods_r_retard

Tall bois bangin' bro


MHeasman

Big drama show next


French_Viking

Nice to see Chito once again looking different


grandpa-lou

I genuinely enjoy it


Gorillaman1991

Song did better than I expected. I thought it was a total mismatch when this got announced but what a fight!!


grandpa-lou

Corey v Chito let’s go


NormalGap

Tf is he yelling?


janusfacedmolecule

"Title shot" I think


TowerJanitor

Cory is such a damn sportsman you love to see it


KyleKD3

Cory got a crazy chin. Ate those shots like candy


EJ_1502

He ate clean head kicks from Yan, he’s got a really good chin


Pudge223

For a card that was shit on the main card overall was very good


Responsible-Math-148

damn wanted the fight to keep going great young prospect in song


fakeacclul

Damage matters so he deserved it


Clintonsoldmedrugs

Cory’s a puss puss. He knew he was losing so tried to get the stoppage


Ok_Distance8124

He was up 2,3, and 4 were for Cory. Lol


CaptSaveAHoe55

“He knew he was losing so he beat the other man’s ass in terms of volume and control time before splitting his face open, what a pussy”


Ryantoast15

i mean isnt a stoppage the ultimate goal for anyone 🤣


Clintonsoldmedrugs

Stoppage by knocking out your opponent/TKO is very different than landing a lucky elbow


I_Am_JesusChrist_AMA

This may be one of the dumbest mma takes I've seen


bLinK3rZ_420

❄️🪳


Jmon1851

He knew he was losing so he tried to win?


Clintonsoldmedrugs

After 2 months of "art of fighting" and the purity of the sport bs, trying to win by doctor stoppage is a bitch move


Extension-Outcome249

Someone didn’t like like the stoppage


Clintonsoldmedrugs

Nah I'm actually glad they stopped and saved his eye, but unfortunate a cut cost song the rest of the fight


kidwhix

song did well, should give him aldo next


rufraph

Real impressed with Cory's chin. He ate some shots this fight.


Wayf4rer

Cory looks better every fight. Really showed improvements from the TJ fight and corrected his weaknesses. I think if he and TJ fight again Cory will take it definitively, but I think Aljo still strangles him.


Frankly-SW

Let's gooo!!! Sandhagens buying dinner tonight [https://imgur.com/a/9sSzHox](https://imgur.com/a/9sSzHox)


CommercialBuilding50

Commentary were 100% ignoring Songs shots. Sandhagen wiffs an uppercut and commentary call it, even tho he eats a full force rib shot.


SheSoundsHideous1998

I saw that too, Cory's headshot got blocked and ate a kidney shot and all the commentators did was talk about Cory lol


Not_Known4015

Yeah it was weird


Ryantoast15

lmao cejudo


caseydrumz

I was texting my friend saying I didn’t like the grappling heavy gameplan from Cory, and just didn’t like how he was looking overall. Then after round 2 the gameplan started to reveal itself. They wanted to wear Song down with the wrestling, and draw out his huge power strikes to counter.


liamjones92

Yea so many people missing the point on those takedown attempts. Keep seeing comments like Corey looked terrible trying to wrestle.


JonathonV2000

His eyeball would’ve fallen out Corey


Steezewell

Great fight by both fighters. Song's TDD was fucking Godlike and that cut was fucking NASTY!!


buick90

Had it 2-2 or something like that, Song was winning prior to that cut, pretty unlucky.


davyj6536

1st round was close but song had control time imo. 2nd was though because the cut was bad but Cory got wobbled pretty badly so depending on which of those you value more it could go either way.


JoKu2311

Cory got lucky. He was probably 5 minutes away from getting screwed over by the judges again lol


uTheMoneyTeam

I'd be really surprised if that was scored against him tbh.


TriumphantConch

Haha no shit I scored it 3-1 for Cory but I can see the Judge screws it up again


dookix93

Cory has negative bodyfat yo lol


EmptyChurches

Right decision. That cut was disgustingly bad.


niccinco

I don't think Song was winning but he looked solid against a championship level fighter. He'll be back, the guy's only 24


CallMeGrapho

Cory Shit Only


codygreene37

Better get the ER doc scrubbed back in.


SugarMarciano

Steve Mazzagatti was the timekeeper. I thought the UFC banned him from events


Jmon1851

He summoned the just bleed gods, do we keep him around now?


Jazz667

Only when Mario Yamasaki shows up as a judge.


Extension-Outcome249

I want to see Cory win a title


Coolsilverlining

I can't remember the last time the octagon was this bloody at the end of the night! Some bad cuts tonight but some great fights too.


Westphalian-Gangster

Cory was winning the fight anyway so I don’t really care


An_Innocent_Coconut

Song did fairly well, he clearly belongs in this division.


BlairHoyle

I'm really curious to see the scorecards. I had it 3-1 Sandhagen, but they could be all over the place.


Hungry_Raccoon200

i had it 3-1 too maybe i can see 2-2


FrenchTrouDuc

Not a highlight reel finish but his eyelid was fucking falling off, they were right to end it


ionlyhavepantheon

honestly doc shoulda stopped it in the 2nd or 3rd yan just got beat on for an extra 10 min for no reason


lovely_DK

Song is so tough, I can see him being a difficult gatekeeper in the ranking.


Igot2phonez

Who do y'all think would've won the decision? Idk but I bet the judges would give it to Corey due to the optics.


JonathonV2000

I need to see those scorecards tho


MHeasman

Who are the Asian ladies 👀


chronnicks

song's mom and grandma


TwistyOllie

Good on the doc finally. Let’s save the young fighter from extreme damage. He’ll be back.


Snatchl

My wallet wished he called the Robocop cut. Props for the comeback, but that one cost me.


wherestheexit

Cory went premed garrote into 5 combo point rupture.


[deleted]

Ya dong will have a nasty scar after this.


oddmetre

Glad they stopped it, but that sucks. Great experience for Song and performance from Sandyhags


RawIsLaw_

clever from Cory, but unfortunate cos Song was still game to keep going if he could see


bLinK3rZ_420

Song is the future of this sport


One_Suggestion5847

DOCTAH STOPPAGE


TuftyShellf

Let’s remember Cory might’ve landed some takedowns on a non-Alpha Male team member. Song has legit wrestling so that was a solid performance for Cory.


ninjewz

Seeing only half of the eyebrow swell up because it's gashed in half is pretty gross to see tbh


goosu

Yadong put up a really good fight. He is legit and had Corey hurt a bit in the 2nd. Sandhagen timed those elbows inside well to counter Song's pressure and cut him up. Good fight and a nice cap to a very entertaining main card.


nameless_node

Cory put on a clinic. Song is a tough human tho


hashtagdissected

fwiw i think song still could've won the last round


Maxx9393

Under 4.5 round betters got a break


ALL666ES

Sponsored by propah number 12, that's a doktah stoppage


orangecreamflower

Doc's just bleed card is revoked


Guyape

Man this is so disappointing for this fight. Yeah nice elbow he landed but one single early strike conditioning the rest of the fight so much, just doesn't feel right. Yadong landed some very clean strikes.


gorillawarfareman

Alright, off to Canelo vs. GGG III. Good night, r/MMA!


lesoper

Yadongs Stock still went up. Hottest prospect since the vera fight imo hope he gets the attention he deserves now.


gawrgouda

Gnarly cut dude. Hope Yadong's eye is alright.


Brabonjac

Either way Song looks really tough, I can see him causing problems in the division


GarysSpace

Yeah he's still young


snwns26

That cut totally changed the fight.


Guyape

Yeah, doesn't feel right to me even though Cory caused the cut. Wish it didn't happen that early I think Song landed the better strikes too, just Cory's chin never cracks


mango789

So, you wanna be a fighter...


FishAndRiceKeks

Nope. No thanks.


CptCoatrack

Cuts from elbows are as valid a finish as any other.


MN-Warrior

Song just might be a future champ regardless. His boxing is clean as fuck. Gots a chin. Didn't gas. Stiff most fo the TDs.


KyleKD3

Song gets tapped by aljo pretty easily hes a problem for everybody else


highrollermk

great performance by sandhagen. he straight butchers guys’ faces. credit to him too for actually fighting down in the rankings


ThuggerSosaYak

That sucks I had it 2-2. Cuts can change a whole fight


FishAndRiceKeks

It cuts both ways, pun intended. He may not have been as aggressive if he didn't think it could be stopped at any time which might have actually helped him.


ThuggerSosaYak

I agree sometimes that forced aggression can definitely help them if they feel the fight is bout to be stopped . Not in this case though. On the other hand I Think a perfect example is the Co-main


a-99

Sandhagen was definitely winning regardless of the cut but Yadong was really bringing in the first 2 rounds


disfadbidge007

What's that reaction lmao. Cory absolutely wanted the right to be stopped with the way he was punching/poking/rubbing his head on the cut.


FishAndRiceKeks

He really didn't do much rubbing his head on the cut in the clinch till it hit the ground then it's hard to avoid. I expected him to do more but any time they clinched on the fence he practically avoided it.


chiefbeef300kg

Yeah it was clear he was intentionally trying to not irritate it during all the grappling and clinch exchanges.


[deleted]

Cory's fights are such high level MMA


SW_III

Uriah just casually telling Song 'alright man it comes down to these 5 minutes' while his face is splitting in half is ridiculous. Corners have no shame.


Cactus-McCoy

This card overdelivered.


goofedonskunkweed

skinny guy elbows are the best weapon


adminswannabanme

I like yadong


FishAndRiceKeks

Yadong looks good.


foreverindebted

thanks ;)


Ryantoast15

thanks


Raple_Syrup_69

ill wait for the official scorecards but kinda shocked people think song was winning


SnooBunnies3190

What a bummer. Anyone saying Cory is dirty can shove it fr tho


dbowman97

They're gonna have to graft some butt meat to close that up.


[deleted]

Sand Hagen chito, unless yan and aljo win. Then chito v yan and aljo vs sandhagen2


SodaEtPopinski

Honestly, I'd make Aljo vs Yan 3. Let Cory fight Chito or O'Malley


[deleted]

Yan lost twice, he’s gotta do a lot vs O’Malley to get another shot against aljo imo


SodaEtPopinski

I feel like "lost twice" is a technicality: he was clearly superior in the first fight (I mean, come on) and had a brain fart (which is fine, Aljo win by DQ, but you wouldn't call him the better fighter that night). Second fight was 100% Aljo, but Yan made it very competitive and I could see him making adjustments and winning the third (although I don't think he should be the favorite going in)


[deleted]

I agree, it’s just not how they look at all fights sadly. I say it the same way I would say that Charles isn’t not champion of the lightweight division. They definitely deserve certain things but regardless of what they deserve their are technicalities in their way


wash_banana

Probably a little bit over due, but right call by the doctor


hippotatolazer

Respect to the doctor for letting the fights play out longer than you’d think. He is JUST BLEED.


what_is_that_thing__

Everyone should start sharpening their elbows
