UFC bantamweight Cory Sandhagen is ever so close to a shot at the 135lbs title following what was the biggest win of his career against Marlon Moraes UFC Fight Island 5. Sandhagen finished Moraes with a perfectly timed spinning heel kick in the second round.

While Sandhagen might very well challenge Petr Yan for the bantamweight title up next, he will have to wait for a doctor’s clearance before stepping inside the cage again after the medical suspensions were announced for UFC Fight Island 5 in Abu Dhabi.

According to MMA.tv, Sandhagen must get himself cleared by an ophthalmologist or he’ll be sidelined for six months due to injuries sustained during his encounter with Moraes. As for the former #1 ranked UFC bantamweight Moraes, he will surprisingly have to sit out for just 45 days after being knocked out in the main event of UFC Fight Island 5.
