He defeated Sean O'Malley by TKO, Davey Grant by unanimous decision, Frankie Edgar by KO, Rob Font by unanimous decision, and Dominick Cruz by KO; while losing to José Aldo by unanimous decision in December of 2020. Vera has been a pro since 2011 and he has eight wins by TKO/KO and eight by submission. He has seven first round finishes.

Vera said this to mmajunkie.usatoday.com about his upcoming fight against Sandhagen, “He needs to convince himself of being OK to win. I don’t need to say anything about him to think I’m going to win. I’m going to win because I’m working this hard. So, if he thinks my style is not reliable or whatever he thinks, that’s on him. I’m not going to wrestle you, I’m not going to strike you, I’m not going to jiu-jitsu you, and I’m going to fight you. Whatever he thinks about my style, you still got to face me. You still got to go through me. I got 20 minutes (25) to figure it out and put you out. I’m always trying to just get better and keep that hunger in me. When I go into these fights, I always see something. I just want it way more than anybody else, and that’s what’s giving me success, because I’m always looking forward to get it done.”

Cory Sandhagen (15-4, 8-3 UFC)

Sandhagen came into the UFC with a record of 7-1 and he has eight wins and three losses in the UFC. In his last six fights, he has three wins and three losses. He defeated Marlon Moraes by TKO, Frankie Edgar by KO, and Song Yadong by TKO; while losing to Aljamain Sterling by rear-naked choke submission, T.J. Dillashaw by split decision, and Petr Yan by unanimous decision. Sandhagen has been a pro since 2015 and he has seven wins by TKO/KO and three by submission. He has six first round finishes.

Sandhagen said this to mmajunkie.usatoday.com about his upcoming fight against Vera, “I think the way that he’s been winning is not a reliable way to win. When I think about some of the best fighters in the world or what I foresee myself trying to become, which is the best fighter in the world, it doesn’t involve a lot of unreliable winning. It involves strategically beating them in every moment and having just very reliable ways to win. Whether that be like takedowns, whether that be just being a better kickboxer, whether that be submissions – whatever that is, I don’t think that it can be lose most of the fight and then catch the person in one of the later rounds. … I don’t think it’s going to work against me, and that’s kind of the way that I feel about his style.”

UFC Picks

Vera has won his last four fights but he is listed as the underdog in this fight against Sandhagen, who is coming off a win against Song Yadong last time out. The competition that Sandhagen has faced is simply better than what Vera has faced and until I see Vera beat someone who isn’t past his prime, I will not be sold. I’ll take Sandhagen to win this bout.
