Sandhagen vs Song Betting Tip
Sandhagen lost his last two fighters by decision. The 30-year-old is the favourite heading into Saturday night, but will those losses affect him? Despite back-to-back losses in UFC, Sandhagen is ranked No. 4 in the Bantamweight rankings.
Yadong Song is 24 years old and brings youth into the fight. The Kung Fu Kid is ranked No. 10 in the Bantamweight division. A win against Sandhagen would send Song up the rankings.
Sandhagen is the favourite to win, but the odds aren't skewed badly in his favour. Bookies are backing Sandhagen to win despite back-to-back decisions going against him.
Song is 19-6 in the octagon. He is on a three-fight win streak in UFC. A split-decision win against Casey Kenney was followed by a second-round TKO win versus Julio Acre.
In March 2022, Song defeated Marlon Moraes via KO at UFC Fight Night Santos vs Ankalaev. It took just 2:06 into the first round for Song to bag the win.
Sandhagen is being favoured too heavily by the bookies. His last two fights went the distance. Song's recent fights were quicker with the Chinese fighter attacking. Sandhagen may try to wear down Song, and extend the match. Song may try to knock out Sandhagen early.
Both fighters are at 3/1 to win via TKO, KO, or submission. Recent results show neither of the fighters is an expert in submission wrestling. A TKO or KO could be the result of this one. The fight is likely to end before going to the judges.

Sandhagen's last two fights went to the judges. Song will work to avoid going the distance. Song is very effective on his feet. If the fight goes to the mat, then Sandhagen has the edge. However, our betting tips prediction is for the fighters to stay upright with punches and kicks deciding it.
