Sandhagen vs Yadong: What was said?

Cory Sandhagen: “Yadong is super athletic, and I think he’s a very dangerous guy.

“But I don’t think he’s ever faced anyone like me. I know everyone says that shit every time, but he literally didn’t face anyone in the top five, so I could definitely say that.

“I’m a humble enough guy and smart enough to know that if I want to be the champion and stay that way for a long time, I have to like to fix some things in my game.

“My game is really tight. It’s really solid. It sure is top five, (but) I don’t want to be top five. I don’t want to spend the next five, six years that I have in the sport (just) in the top five. That’s not what interests me. That’s not what I signed up for.

“I want to be champion. I’ve spent the last year really hammering that home and making sure that when I come back, which is now, I can have a real title run.
