Cory Sandhagen is one of the UFC’s fastest-rising bantamweights. After only three years in the UFC, the American is ranked second in the ‘tough’ bantamweight division. Sandhagen, or ‘Sandman,’ has become a force to be reckoned with after victories over Raphael Assuncao, Marlon Moraes, and Frankie Edgar. He is now preparing to welcome TJ Dillashaw to the Octagon after a 30-month absence. Sandhagen was born on April 20, 1992, in Aurora, Colorado. He made his MMA debut in 2015 and took to the sport like a duck to water, making rapid strides in a short period.
Sandhagen was born and raised in Aurora, Colorado, and attended Smoky Hill High School, where he was a member of the basketball team – a sport he had played since he was a child. He eventually became interested in combat sports, beginning with kickboxing, where he won multiple WKA titles. Sandhagen began his transition to mixed martial arts after winning a WKA world title. Sandhagen earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Colorado Boulder.
Cory Sandhagen made his debut on May 30, 2015. His first home was FTW: Prize Fighting Championship. He then quickly went 5-0 in his MMA career, earning him a contract with the Legacy Fighting Alliance. Jamall Emmers defeated him in a unanimous decision loss on his LFA debut.
After that, there was no turning back as Sandhagen won after the win, going on a seven-fight winning streak that lasted into the UFC. Sandhagen made his UFC debut in January 2018 against Austin Arnett.
His first UFC loss came against current bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling, who slept him with a rear-naked choke from ‘The Funk Master.’ Following that defeat, he won back-to-back fights against Marlon Moraes and Frankie Edgar most recently.
When it comes to his personal life, Cory Sandhagen is extremely private. He has revealed nothing about his parents except that they are quite old, which he has mentioned a couple of times. The same can be said for his girlfriend. He does have a girlfriend, but she has never been publicly identified.
Cory Sandhagen has an estimated net worth of $1 million. He has recently been able to snag large purses due to his quick rise to the top. His biggest payday came from a flying knee KO victory over Frankie Edgar earlier this year. That night, he made $221,000 in cash. Sandhagen walked away from his first fight against Austin Arnett with an extra $22,500 in his bag.
Cory Sandhagen bought an Auto 370/632, 2020 model. This purple car cost him thousands of dollars, but he does not seem to mind.
There is no record of his house or any other luxury life.
