UFC Countdown - 289Jun 7
The UFC bantamweight rankings could be set for a shakeup this weekend as two top five rivals trade leather with the next shot at the bantamweight champion potentially at stake for the victor when Marlon Vera takes on Cory Sandhagen.
Vera believed he had already done enough to secure the shot with a bonus-winning knockout of Dominick Cruz last time out but the 30-year-old Ecuadorian faces one last test in the form of one-time title challenger Sandhagen, hoping to put his championship credentials beyond question at the AT&T Center in Texas.

Meanwhile Sandhagen can take one more step back towards the 135lb belt with a win over another in-form contender among the bantamweight elite as he looks to back up an impressive victory against Song Yadong in September with a win on Saturday night.
Former bantamweight champion Holly Holm also returns to action as she takes on Yana Santos in the co-main event, while flyweights Andrea Lee and Maycee Barber also do battle on the main card.
