After a tightly contested bout fought at the highest level, TJ Dillashaw would edge out Cory Sandhagen via split decision in his first fight in two years.

With a fascinating clash of styles playing out, Sandhagen would land heavy counter blows while Dillashaw’s forward pressure would see the former champion pepper away with well-timed kicks and entries into the clinch.

While Sandhagen would no doubt land the more damaging strikes, most notably opening a deep cut in the second round, Dillashaw’s control time was perhaps the decisive factor for two of the three ringside judges.
