UFC Vegas 32: Cory Sandhagen vs. T.J. Dillashaw full live results and highlights

A pivotal bantamweight matchup tops UFC Vegas 32, as former two-time bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw makes his long-awaited return to the Octagon, as he takes on Cory Sandhagen.

Sandhagen has made a name for himself in the bantamweight division since his short-notice UFC debut in January 2018. Sandhagen raised his stock in 2019 through a submission of Mario Bautista and decisions over John Lineker and Raphael Assuncao. Sandhagen was submitted quickly by current champ Aljamain Sterling at UFC 250 but has since rebounded with devastating knockouts of Marlon Moraes and Frankie Edgar.

This will mark Dillashaw’s first fight in over two years, as he was serving a suspension for testing positive for EPO in early 2019.

His first reign as bantamweight champion began when he defeated Renan Barao in amazing upset fashion at UFC 173. He’d defend against Joe Soto and Barao before losing the championship to Dominick Cruz. Dillashaw got back to winning ways against Assuncao and Lineker before stopping Cody Garbrandt at UFC 217 to recapture the gold.

Dillashaw defended the belt in a rematch with Garbrandt and unsuccessfully challenged Henry Cejudo for the flyweight title in January 2019.
