Bantamweight Cory Sandhagen made some noise in the 135-pound division on Saturday when he took out former title challenger Marlon Moraes in the UFC on ESPN+ 37 main event.

“The Sandman” earned a Performance of the Night bonus for his second-round stoppage. After dropping Moraes with a spinning wheel kick, Sandhagen finished with a series of punches on the ground.

Following he win, Sandhagen believes that he’s right in the mix for a title shot against the winner of champion Petr Yan and challenger Aljamain Sterling.
