Breaking down Aljamain Sterling's submission of Cody Stamann (1:01)

In this excerpt of Unlocking Victory on ESPN+, Gilbert Melendez breaks down in detail how Aljamain Sterling was able to submit Cody Stamann at UFC 228. (1:01)

It's not the main event. It's not even -- technically -- the co-main event. But the placing of the Aljamain Sterling-Cory Sandhagen bout on Saturday's UFC 250 card does not reflect the importance of the bantamweight clash.

It's expected that the winner will face the winner of the Petr Yan-Jose Aldo bout, which will determine who holds the belt vacated by Henry Cejudo.
