Knee to the head was enough to end a living UFC legend

Cory Sandhagen only needed 28 seconds to put his rival to sleep in what was the fight of his consolidation as a contender for the UFC title. The fighter delivered a brutal knee to the face of an icon of mixed martial arts (MMA) like Frankie Edgar that sent him to the canvas in a deep sleep.

Before the fight, Cory Sandhagen warned of his intentions. “Franki Edgar has been knocked out a couple of times at featherweight and it’s easy to do it,” said the fighter, who later backed up his words. He came out determined to finish as soon as possible and it did not take him too long to achieve his goal against the legendary fighter.

“I had a chance to finish him off and I did. I feel good. I beat Frankie Edgar. I have always followed him, he is a legend of this sport. I said I was here to fight the best and I made it clear once again, ”Sandhagen commented at a press conference after the fight.

In addition, the Colorado fighter made it clear that he wants to fight for the title of the bantamweight division immediately. His celebration after Edgar’s beastly KO confirmed it, and his post-fight statements confirmed it. “I am intact. I don’t have a scratch. I can fight whenever they want. I will go for everyone and for the belt, no one doubts it. I will show that I am the best in this division.

This KO leaves Sandhagen’s record at 14-2, with eight finals before the bell. In addition, his knockout of Frankie Edgar is one of the fastest in UFC history, although far from the five seconds it took Jorge Masvidal to send Ben Askren to the canvas at UFC 239.
