inty Bets is joined by Kevin Iole to preview the upcoming UFC Fight Night main event between Cory Sandhagen and Song Yadong at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 17th.
MINTY BETS: We've got "UFC Fight Tonight" taking place this Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm MintyBets. And here to give us his best bet for the bantamweight main event is Kevin Iole. Kevin, the main event features Corey Sandhagen, -225, versus Song Yadong at +175. Now Yadong has got that durability and Corey's got really great technique. I think this should be a really explosive fight. But I'm kind of leaning Corey to win. What are your thoughts?
KEVIN IOLE: Yeah, I'd like Sandhagen to win this, Minty. I think he's a more well-rounded fighter. And he's a more experienced fighter at the highest level. Song Yadong, of course, has fought Chito Vera, but he hasn't had the number of big fights that you've seen with Cory Sandhagen, who's been in there basically with everybody and really acquitted himself well every time he's there.
And I think it's a close fight. The numbers may be a little bit high for my liking. But I'm going to go ahead and play Cory Sandhagen here. Because I think he's just the better overall fighter. And he knows he needs a win in this spot. He can't really absorb another loss, given what's happened to him in fights with Sterling and Petr Yan, et cetera. So I like Sandhagen. I think he's got the motivation here. I think he's got the better overall game. I'm going to go Cory Sandhagen, lay the money to win this fight.
MINTY BETS: I like it. I like it. Thank you so much, Kevin.
KEVIN IOLE: Thanks, Minty.
