Best bets for UFC Fight Night: Cory Sandhagen vs. TJ Dillashaw

Last week, former champion Meisha Tate returned from nearly a five-year layoff, making a splash with a dominant performance that immediately places her in the title picture for her division. This week, former champion TJ Dillashaw will attempt to perform the same feat in his first fight in over two and half years. The winner is likely on deck to face the winner of Aljamain Sterling-Petr Yan, once their title matchup gets a final resolution.

Tate converted as a worthy favorite, but Dillashaw will enter the cage as a clear underdog, despite coming off three consecutive title appearances, in which he went 2-1. His opponent, Cory Sandhagen, is bigger, younger and wrecked a former champion in his last appearance. Where does the value lie?

Prelims start at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN/ESPN+, and the main card begins at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN/ESPN+.
