Marlon Moraes’ title aspirations took a hit on Saturday when he suffered a decisive loss to Cory Sandhagen in the UFC on ESPN+ 37 main event.

Moraes (23-7-1 MMA, 5-3 UFC) fell to 1-1 since he challenged for UFC gold in June 2019 when he succumbed to a highlight-reel TKO loss against Sandhagen (13-2 MMA, 6-1 UFC) in the bantamweight headliner, which took place at Flash Forum at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Although Moraes is still a top contender at 135 pounds, his road to gold got a little longer with the defeat to Sandhagen.
