Marlon Vera vs Cory Sandhagen Betting Analysis

Both these men have circled each other over the past couple of years as the bantamweight division is on fire and has practically turned into a constant tournament bracket.

Sandhagen comes in with some high-end UFC experience, having competed against 4 UFC champions with the likes of Frankie Edgar/Petr Yan/Aljamain Sterling and TJ Dillashaw as former opponents.

Marlon Vera is on pace to break records for longevity with the promotion at the age of 30. Vera has already amassed a UFC record of 14-6 as he enters the prime of his career.


Cory Sandhagen offers some of the most dynamic and diverse striking the UFC offers. He can resemble an Israel Adesanya with some of his unique offensive attacks as he uses his legs to keep excellent distance management and isn’t afraid to mix things up with his elbows and knees.

In this fight, range management will have to be a key for Sandhagen, as Vera does his best when he gets in the face of his opponents and makes it a dog fight.

Sandhagen can pick his shots from the outside while doing damage and winning rounds. That is likely his path to victory.


For a good reason, Marlon Vera is a fan favourite, as his rise to UFC contention has been well documented, beating great talent at every corner and fighting the most challenging fights.

Vera has drawn one of the most dreadful schedules of late as he’s faced off with former champion Dominick Cruz and the likes of Sean O’Malley and Rob Font. But he’s managed to defeat them all with the battering style that rarely sees him ever out of a fight.

Vera has some excellent skills on the feet as he mixes his attacks up very well while boasting some strong BJJ understanding as he’s secured three submission victories inside the octagon.

Vera will be looking to create chaos and bring war out of Cory Sandhagen, where Vera is the best in the world.

Marlon Vera vs Cory Sandhagen Expert Prediction

Both men have proven extremely durable over their tenures inside the octagon.

In their combined 10 UFC losses, Sandhagen is the only one to be finished, and that’s a submission against now-champion Aljamian Sterling.

90% rate as they match up, and we get the fight to go the distance at a great price of -145

Prediction: Fight Goes The Distance (-145)
