Although Cory Sandhagen came up short in his bid to win a UFC title on Saturday, the bantamweight is still certain he’ll become a champion one day.

Sandhagen battled Petr Yan for the interim belt at UFC 267, but ended up losing the thrilling fight via unanimous decision. Since then, the 29-year-old shared out the statement below, via social media.

Tough sport. Hell of a fight, Yan. Learn. Get better. The ship keeps sailing. I’m gonna be champ one day

Sandhagen (14-4) was coming off a split decision loss to former champ, T.J. Dillashaw this past July, heading into UFC 267.

Yan (16-2), meanwhile, was fighting for the first time since March, when he lost the bantamweight title via disqualification (illegal knee) to Aljamain Sterling.
