This is the UFC Vegas 60 live blog for the bantamweight main event between Cory Sandhagen and Song Yadong on Saturday in Las Vegas.

Sandhagen enters this bout at a pivotal moment in his career. The former bantamweight interim title challenger has lost two in a row, and in the stacked 135-pound division, a third loss could prove disastrous for “The Sandman” and his title aspiration. To retain his position as the No. 4 bantamweight in the world, and to stay in the title conversation, Sandhagen needs to right the ship tonight.

Unlike Sandhagen, Yadong enters the octagon on a three-fight winning streak, with back-to-back stoppages over Julio Arce and Marlon Moraes. The 24-year-old powerhouse has a bright future ahead of him, but a win tonight could prove that the future is now, and jump him to the shortlist for a title shot or title eliminator.
