Frankie Edgar is confident that a victory over Corey Sandhagen at UFC Vegas 18 will ensure him the title of champion in the future
Frankie Edgar's showdown with his ultralight rival, the aforementioned Corey Sandhagen, scheduled for February 6 in Las Vegas, will propel him to his next UFC title. The fight for the title will be a real highlight of the UFC tournament program, and for the winner it will be a great promotion on the career ladder in their category.

The 39-year-old Edgar became widely known after his debut in this category last August, defeating Pedro Munoz, which became one of the best and outstanding sports sensations of 2020. Edgar looked as tough, strong, and even dangerous in a way as he had when competing in the lightweight championships a decade ago. Of course, this is not a very impressive example, but still, it is worth paying tribute, as soon as he enters the octagon, Edgar causes a storm of emotions in the audience.
In the new category, after incessant training, Edgar is eager to get back in the ring and prove that he is rightfully the owner of the title. The opportunity will come next weekend, when his opponent will be Sandhagen, whose last October victory was the knockout of Marlon Morais.

” In my opinion, this fight can become the main confrontation of the contenders for the title in the category, "Edgar said in the new edition of the podcast "Very fast with Mike Swick". “He's in second place, I'm in third. Aljamain (Sterling) and Petr Yan have already been announced as contenders for the title, I think their fight will be on March 6, so now is the right time for our fight with Sandhagen. We'll fight a month earlier than these guys; we'll see what happens to them, and then hopefully the winner of our fight will be the winner of their fight."


Although Edgar is not a star of UFC competitions, for the first time in the last three years, he expects to win his first series of victories from 2016-2017. This is the longest break in his professional career and one of the fundamental reasons why Edgar moved to the ultralight category.

Fortunately, this transition of Edgar seems to be the best strategy of the athlete at this stage of his activity. Finally, he fights in his weight category, and the athlete has already shown that he is a legitimate candidate for the title in his new category, it remains only to win in one fight. It is now in the power of the "Answer" to eliminate any attempts by Sandhagen to get the title at the UFC Vegas 18 tournament and in the process prevent his claim to the UFC gold belt.

Kamaru Usman is eager for a rematch with Masvidal, as a broken nose before the first fight did not allow him to realize his potential
Kamaru Usman will defend his welterweight title against Gilbert Burns at UFC 258 next month, but the Nigerian Nightmare is still aiming for a rematch with Jorge Masvidal.

Usman, set to defend his 170-pound belt against Burns on February 13 live on ESPN + PPV from Las Vegas, Nevada, defeated Masvidal by decision when they met at UFC 251 on " Fight Island." Although the fight helped UFC 251 collect 1.3 million purchases per view, it is difficult to call the performance of the fighters, especially the champion, the best.
Usman has had plenty of time to reflect on the fight with Masvidal, and he believes that if they had met again, everything would have been different.

"I'm not happy because I didn't fight at full strength in that fight, no matter how much I prepared before," Usman told ESPN. "Many things influenced the fight. But I'm much better than that. Now I have a lot more techniques and skills that I can show, and then I beat him with what I did for five years."
"Now I'm struggling with myself," Usman continued. "This fight will happen if he tries, and I want to do it again, because you need to put an exclamation mark on it. I want to kill him. I want to impress myself."

Justin Gatji celebrates losing to "idiot" Conor McGregor and aims to win the fight with Dustin Poirier
Public announcement: Justin Gatz hates Conor McGregor.
This isn't exactly the latest news at the moment, given that Justin Gatz has been bashing the "Infamous" (McGregor) in the MMA-focused media for the past few years. So you can imagine Gatji's glee when McGregor was knocked out at UFC 257.

Gatji stated: "He (McGregor) or his coach said he wants to have a title fight in the next rematch with Poirier. They're idiots. He was treated in a special way again and again, but he did not take advantage of this opportunity. This event was an opportunity for him to win. Right now, he wants to be Mr. Humble, but everyone knows he'd be an asshole if he won this fight. I like to watch this chatterbox get knocked out, and nothing makes me happier. It was great to see a piece of shit go down, I loved it.»


McGregor was ready to make another attempt to get the lightweight title, which currently belongs to Khabib Nurmagomedov. But top contender Dustin Poirier changed his plans at the main event of UFC 257 last weekend in Abu Dhabi, winning by technical knockout in the second round.
"Diamond" (Poirier's nickname) also ranks higher in the rankings than Gatji.
"I saw that Dustin is above me in the ranking. It's well deserved, " Gatji continued. - He's one, I'm two, Charles (Oliveira) is three, (Michael) Chandler is four. No matter what, I must defeat Poirier. I'll get to the top of the rankings, no matter what it takes. It was an amazing weekend for us lightweights. It's really shaken up the division, and it's really going to get the UFC organizers to come together and come up with some ideas. "The
fight between Gatji and McGregor is one of those options... Assuming that "Infamous" fulfills its promise.

Peter Yan not interested in Edgar-Sandhagen winner, welcomes back T. J. Dillashaw
I have some bad news for the winner of the Frankie Edgar vs. Cory Sandhagen fight. The fight in the ultralight category between the Top 5 contenders is scheduled as part of the upcoming event "UFC Vegas 18". It will be held on February 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Instead of taking part in this fight, the reigning 61-pound titleholder Peter Yan took aim at former champion T. J. Dillashaw. The latter returns to competition after a two-year suspension due to taking the EPO drug, which he used to lose weight and gain the title in an easier way.

"Edgar is older. It's small, its fan base is not very good, "said Ian." Sundhagen lost to Sterling. I think Dillashaw might. T. J. Dillashaw returned after a doping test. I want to fight him. It depends on the UFC. If the conditions allow, I will fight him whenever I want. Just make sure that this time he is not going to use anything forbidden. I think it's going to be a really great fight and I'm going to win. He's older. He had a 2-year break, during which he did not take part in fights. Today, if I remember correctly, he is 34 years old. It is older for the ultralight weight category.”


Ian, 27, won't have to worry about picking his next opponent unless he can get past top contender Aljamain Sterling at UFC 259, officially scheduled for March 6 in Las Vegas or Abu Dhabi.
The "Funk Master" (Aljamain Sterling's nickname) doesn't seem to share his views on Dillashaw.
Yang has been competing in the Octagon for less than three years, but has already won seven straight under the UFC banner. The only downside to" No Mercy " (Ian's nickname) is that he hasn't beaten any of the Top 5 in his weight class yet.
But that could change at the upcoming UFC 259 in just a few weeks.
