Cory Sandhagen stopped Song Yadong by TKO after the fourth round Saturday night in their bantamweight bout at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas.

The referee called the fight at the conclusion of the fourth round after it was determined Yadong could no longer continue with a cut over his left eye.

Sandhagen earned his first victory since February 2021.

“Song is good, I knew he was good,” Sandhagen said. “I hate the way it ended. He deserved a fifth round. I wanted to see the scorecards to see if I was winning. But I cut him in the first, and I’m happy about it.”

Sandhagen improved to 15-4. Yadong dropped to 19-7-1.
