Khabib Nurmagomedov called out the results from UFC Vegas 32 after Cory Sandhagen vs TJ Dillashaw
The Eagle had kept a close eye on the main event between TJ Dillashaw and Cory Sandhagen. The fight was a close one, no doubt, and many thought that Sandhagen had done enough to get the win.
While The Sandman didn’t KO his rival, Sandhagen did give the returning Dillashaw quite a beating and even handed him a nasty cut.
Khabib even tweeted that Sandhagen should get the win 3:2 because of the damage caused to his rival.
However, the UFC judges saw it another way and gave the split decision win to Dillashaw. This saw many fans question the UFC with some stars also not happy with the judges.

The decision did catch Khabib off guard but he was quick to praise Sandhagen. The former UFC Lightweight champion claimed that Sandhagen could cause a lot of problems for anyone in the Bantamweight division.
“But anyway Sanhagen is a real deal
“He is a problem for anyone in division”
Sandhagen came into this fight with three wins on the spin. However, this loss would be a little hard to take. Losing such close fights is always a problem and the question about judging never goes away.
Sandhagen dealt a lot of damage to his rival, however, he was still a little upbeat after the loss.
He brought up speaking to Sean Shelby after the fight and also being in the running for a title shot after another win.
It will be interesting to see what is next for the Sandman but he can hold his head high after this fight.
