Cory Sandhagen is willing to reschedule his fight against Umar Nurmagomedov , but under two conditions. Sandhagen (17-4 MMA, 10-3 UFC) was booked to face Nurmagomedov in the UFC on ESPN 50 headliner this past August, but faced Rob Font instead after Nurmagomedov withdrew due to injury. Sandhagen dominated Font , but tore his triceps in Round 1. At first, Sandhagen wasn’t keen on fighting Nurmagomedov (16-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) again. He explains that after beating Font, he expected to take a step forward, not backwards. “It wasn’t necessarily a no as much as it was like, ‘Hey, give me some time to think about it,’ because it does feel like I would maybe be a little slighted in that situation – only because I felt like I was now one fight ahead of fighting him,” Sandhagen told MMA on SiriusXM
