Definitely, the return of the UFC to RMC Sport is overwhelming. For Conor McGregor to begin with, the Irish champion having missed his comeback by being knocked out by Dustin Poirier, final January 23 …
On the evening of Saturday 6 to Sunday 7 February, all eyes had been this time on the heavyweight class, with the clash between Alistair Overeem and Alexander Volkov, which noticed the spectacular victory of the Russian fighter, now nicely positioned to hope to clinch the title of world champion of the class. However, it was one other of the fights scheduled throughout this new UFC Fight Night that noticed probably the most spectacular knockout of the night: it took solely 28 seconds for Cory Sandhagen to ship his opponent, Frankie Edgar, to the mat! 28 seconds. It takes even much less time than heating a dish in the microwave …
Obviously, the American Cory Sandhagen had no time to waste. Maybe it was double parked? Where needed to put his online part of Fortnite on break ? Still, he rapidly gained the higher hand on his opponent, because of a spectacular knee bounce. All the extra spectacular contemplating that his opponent, Frankie Edgar, just isn’t frankly a beginner: he was a UFC light-weight champion, and is taken into account a real legend of the Octagon. But he may do nothing to counter the horrible blow, which seems to come out of an episode of Dragon ball z.

From one other angle :
Cory Sandhagen, “the man of the sands”, a daily knee striker
Obviously, Cory Sandhagen, now 14 wins in 16 fights, was proud of his efficiency, even when he appeared to remorse having inflicted such a knockout on such a prestigious opponent:
“It feels good, but it’s Frankie Edgar. I don’t want to see that happen to him, you know. But better him than me.”
third in the bantamweight class, Sandhagen, nicknamed “the man of the sands” due to his title, but in addition for his agility, now hopes to have the ability to win the title. For this, he hopes to have the ability to face from the month of July the one who would be the winner of the combat between Petr Yan, the defending champion, and Aljamain Sterling, which can happen on March 7, on RMC Sport obviously. Perhaps the chance to see a Sterling-Sandhagen rematch, after the latter’s defeat in July 2020? In any case, that is what the American fighter desires of:
“If Aljamain Sterling wins, I owe him a nap and he’s going to take that nap. The winner of those two will get knocked out by me in July.”
For this, there is no such thing as a doubt that he will guess rather a lot on his well-known bounce knee, which he had already used, for instance right here in opposition to John Lineker in 2019:
