    I think he's exactly what he is, but needs more experience against these top elite guys to be champion material.

    He'll learn a lot from that TJ fight.

    As advertised, dude is a beast. One loss to an ex champion doesn’t discredit his vicious streak leading up to Saturday night.

    Sherdog needs to chill the fuck out on the “he was never any good” bullshit.

    props to Sandhagan, and props to TJ.

    He won the fight but has a very low presence.

    The same could be said about DJ. No presence or charisma that catches people sadly.

    I voted as advertised. Perhaps a tiny bit overrated going into the fight. Alot of people thought he was going to destroy Dilly, which i couldn't wrap my head around at all.

    UFC might be pushing this kid to quick. He's very good and tricky, but Font boxes his ears off imo. He should step back in competition.

    Mostly as advertised. He definitely showed that danger that made people believe him to a be a slight favourite, but it was definitely also expected that TJ would not be an easy fight. Maybe just a little bit overrated tho. He has been such a technical and calculated striker, to point where I'd believe he wouldn't get so easily wrestled or clinched up, but I wasn't expecting Cory to get caught up in that game but he quite did.

    One of the most overrated fighters in the UFC.


    2-2 in his last 4

    No elite wins

    can’t grapple

    constantly fed washed up fighters and still couldn’t get it done against TJ


    The only people who think Sandhagen is legit are the ones doubling down who don’t want to admit they were wrong about him.

    Edmen Shabazyan of bantamweight. Young, great striker, bright future but has a glaring hole in his game. People take his back waay too often.

    You could argue he just beat TJ Dillashaw, a guy who lost 2 fights via an early stoppage and the other 2 via a split decision that could have gone his way. Sandhagen is a beast with a lot of tools. I think he needs better coaching, but he's legit.

    He belongs in the top 5, but I don't think he'll win a belt. He's got time to improve, though, so who knows

    SPF 50 would give him a solid 15 minutes before incineration.

    Really good fighter.... looks like he benefitted immensely from being a lot taller than Dillashaw.

    Still has some tools he needs to shapren but I think he's a legit top5.

    Solid top 5 BW which says a lot these days. Might hold the belt some day but current BW is one of the all-time toughest divisions.

    He's excellent. Extremely fast reflexes and eyes, unreal reaction time. What people don't realise is how formidable TJ is.
