UFC on ESPN+ 37 Results: Sandhagen Finishes Moraes, Barboza Cruises Past Amirkhani

Bryan Henderson Editor-in-Chief

On Saturday, Oct. 10, the UFC continued its second lengthy stint on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, UAE, hosting its 37th broadcast on ESPN+. The event once again featured no fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the night’s main event, former bantamweight title challenger Marlon Moraes collided with Colorado’s Cory Sandhagen. The Brazilian Moraes aimed to build off a narrow decision victory over former featherweight king José Aldo in December. Sandhagen, meanwhile, looked to rebound from a first-round submission defeat to No. 1 contender Aljamain Sterling in his last outing.

The event kicked off with a preliminary-card stream on ESPN+ at 5 p.m. ET. The night’s main card followed at 8 p.m. ET, also on ESPN+.
