THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

Song Yadong makes his third UFC appearance and will be fighting on home turf once again. The youngster was originally scheduled to fight fellow bantamweight Frankie Saenz but unfortunately he had to pull out with injury. This has given Vince Morales the opportunity for his UFC debut.

After winning his second fight for Bellator, the UFC have snapped him up but he has a tough challenge, flying all the way over to Beijing to take on Song who hasn’t lost in five fights.

THE PREDICTION

This should be a very exciting, fast-paced fight. They are both electric on the feet, especially Morales who has great hands, causing damage from distance. Song is also powerful and although he will be the favourite, he has to be careful as Morales is a finisher who will try and force a brawl.

Song will have to call upon all his skills to grind out a win, in particular his grappling. Considering Morales’ strengths and as his only two losses have come via submission, he may look to keep the fight on the floor.

Winner: Song via Decision
