Marlon Moraes vs. Song Yadong Targeted For March

Bantamweights Marlon Moraes and Song Yadong are set to face off at a yet-to-be-announced UFC Fight Night event on March 12.

Yadong confirmed the matchup himself on the UFC's Migu channel, with additional reporting on the bout coming from MMA Junkie's Farah Hannoun, but the promotion is yet to confirm anything themselves. Moraes is 1-4 in his last five Octagon appearances and is currently riding a three-fight losing streak with his latest defeat coming via a second-round TKO to Merab Dvalishvili at UFC 266. Yadong on the other hand is 5-1-1 in his seven UFC bouts and is coming off of a second-round TKO victory over Julio Arce back at UFC Vegas 42.
