While Dillashaw is coming into the fight after 2 years, the fighter suffered a loss in his last fight against former UFC ‘champ-champ’ Henry Cejudo. After that fight, the fighter tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug and was banned for 2 years.


Therefore, Dillashaw had to vacate his UFC bantamweight title in March 2019. Now, as he is set to return to action, the fighter would love to get a victory and challenge for the title again.

On the other hand, Cory Sandhagen has been competing regularly and is in substantial form. In his last fight at UFC Fight Night 184, the fighter defeated Frankie Edgar via a first-round KO. Therefore, ahead of this fight, ‘The Sandman’ will be the more confident of the two fighters.
