Frankie Edgar issues statement following knockout loss to Cory Sandhagen

Chris Taylor - February 8, 2021

Frankie Edgar was hoping to earn a bantamweight title shot with a win over Cory Sandhagen in the co-main event of UFC Vegas 18. Edgar (24-9-1 MMA) had made his 135-pound debut this past August where he picked up a thrilling split-decision victory over Pedro Munhoz. That win had snapped a two-fight losing skid for ‘The Answer’, as Frankie had previously suffered setbacks to Chan Sung Jung and Max Holloway at featherweight.
