Henry “The Messenger” Cejudo believes Cory Sandhagen is the best 135 pounder after him, he said “He’s probably, in my opinion, the best 135 pounder other than me,” but Cejudo has the perfect formula to beat him.
In an interview with MMA Junkie he said, “You just have to learn to bring the fight to Cory Sandhagen. You just gotta bring the fight, that’s it. You cannot give that kid space.”
“He’s extremely dangerous; he’s got talent. But if you don’t bring the fight, he’s gonna get you because there’s one thing that he does know very well, and that’s distance and his composure, which are the things that I look at when I watch a fight.”
Cejudo believes Sandhagen should wait for his title shot
Henry Cejudo thinks Sandhagen is more talented than Dillashaw but he should wait for his chance at the title, he said “I would wait in line if I were him (Sandhagen). I would also wait for T.J. too because that’s an easy fight for him. The difference between Cory Sandhagen and T.J. Dillashaw is the fact that he’s better at what Dillashaw does.”
“He’s a lot cleaner; he’s a lot smoother. They have similar styles, but T.J.’s style is a lot more broken, that Duane ‘Bang’ whatever it’s called. So, if I was Cory, I would wait. If I was T.J., I would probably try to fight him to get to that title shot.”
