– Cory Sandhagen spoke with reporters after his win over Mario Bautista at UFC on ESPN+ 1. Highlights are below, per MMAjunkie:

On a possible fight with John Lineker: “Right now, I’m in no rush to call anyone out. But I definitely want to fight up. I’m comfortable in this spot where I am, so I need to step out of my comfort zone a little bit. If it’s Lineker, it’s Lineker – or someone in the top 15 or top 10.”

On his win being the first UFC fight broadcast on ESPN: “It’s super cool. ESPN – we grew up watching that our whole lives in the U.S., so that was cool. I didn’t think about it too much. I have a lot of family from Queens, and I had all of them come, so I was a little bit more excited that my family from New York got to come watch me fight. But being on ESPN is pretty cool.”
