Saturday, UFC 250 sees the UFC Apex host a pay-per-view event for the first time when some of the sport’s brightest prospects get ready to showcase their potential on the big stage in Las Vegas.
Headlining the event is a fight between two-division UFC women’s champion Amanda Nunes and challenge Felicia Spencer. Nunes is putting her 145-pound title on the line for the first time.
Also on the card is a pivotal bantamweight clash between Aljamain Sterling and Cory Sandhagen, who are looking to cement themselves as the No. 1 contender at 135 pounds.
And Dana White’s Contender Series alums Sean O’Malley, Alonzo Menifield and Chase Hooper all will look to remain unbeaten as they continue to climb up the ranks in their divisions.
UFC 250 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+.
Ahead of fight night, let’s take a closer look at four fighters on the rise at UFC 250.
Elevation Fight Team’s Cory Sandhagen has dazzled since joining the UFC roster in January 2018.
Displaying a creative and technical style, the well-rounded Sandhagen (12-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) quickly showed off his skills, stopping his first three opponents in the UFC.
He was given a big step up in competition when he was matched up with the hard-hitting John Lineker, and Sandhagen was able to use his footwork and movement to outmaneuver the Brazilian powerhouse.
He then faced Raphael Assuncao at UFC 241 this past August and picked up a dominant decision win over the 135-pound staple for his biggest victory to date.
Five UFC fights into his career, Sandhagen finds himself on the cusp of a title shot when he takes on fellow streaking bantamweight Aljamain Sterling at UFC 250.
