Sandhagen: "People are writing that I will be killed in a fight with Nurmagomedov"

Top American UFC lightweight fighter Corey Sandhagen says he feels no pressure ahead of his bout with undefeated Dagestan Umar Nurmagomedov.

"I don't feel any pressure. I hardly sit on social media, only read messages. That way I feel more healthy. Of course, sometimes I see some people posting that I'm going to be killed. I think about it for 5-10 seconds, but then I readjust to the positive side," Corey told Sportskeeda.

Recall, Sandhagen and Nurmagomedov should fight on August 3 in the main event of the show UFC on ABC 7 in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
