Bantamweights Yadong Song, Ricky Simon to Clash at UFC Fight Night on April 22
Yadong Song will square off against Ricky Simon in a bantamweight tilt at UFC Fight Night on April 22.
Eurosport was first to report the matchup. UFC Fight Night doesn’t currently have a confirmed location or headliner. The card is also expected to include a lightweight showdown between Bobby Green and Jared Gordon as well as a featherweight scrap pitting Karol Rosa against Norma Dumont.
Song had a three-fight winning streak snapped in his last outing, as he suffered a technical knockout loss to Cory Sandhagen in the UFC Fight Night 210 headliner on Sept. 17. The Team Alpha Male product is 8-2-1 during his tenure with the Las Vegas-based promotion.
Simon has been victorious in his last five Octagon appearances. Most recently, the American Top Team Portland representative submitted Jack Shore in the second round of their UFC on ABC 3 clash this past July.
