Recently on TNT Sports, Michael Bisping explained how Cory Sandhagen vs Umar Nurmagomedov is going to be a competitive knock.

“When it comes to contenders, Cory Sandhagen is right there,” Bisping said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “He has proven himself as the worthy guy, but he’s got to continue fighting to establish himself and get that shot.

There is no one better, there’s no one hungrier, there’s no one more undeniable than Umar Nurmagomedov. Of course with that last name, with the resume, the undefeated record and the well-rounded skills. (He’s) Dagestani – we know the wrestling is there.

But the man is a kickboxing phenom, as well. This is a tremendous fight. Of course, it’s the main event and whoever wins this, they have to be next for Sean O’Malley”.
