Aljamain Sterling -115
Sterling is coming into the fight here standing at only 5’7” and 135 pounds. However, one thing that Sterling has going for him is he has a 71 inch reach that is really good for someone of his height.
In his career Sterling has come to rely on the orthodox type of stance for his fighting. Sterling does use more of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu type of fighting style when it comes time to fight. In his last five fights Sterling has ended up getting 4 wins and 1 loss, but the last loss was 3 years ago in 2017.
Sandhagen is coming into the fight here with a big height advantage that has him standing at 5’11” and 135 pounds. When it comes to the reach it shows that the height is not the determining factor as Sandhagen has only a 70 inch reach.
Cory Sandhagen is heading into the fight more of a striker style fighter compared to what the other styles are, but he uses more of a switch style of dance, which makes it a little bit more unpredictable. In all of his last 5 races Sandhagen has ended up getting a win in each of those fights. He even managed to get 2 KO/TKO wins, a submission, split and unanimous decisions in the win.
This is a fight that will actually be fairly well matched. However, one thing that is going to be easy to see is the fact that Sandhagen is coming in with a better style that has shown a wide range of skills. Look for all of those skills to really help Sandhagen in this very closely matched fight and use his height advantage to lean on Sterling and make him carry him. UFC 250 Fight Night Prediction, Cory Sandhagen.
