By Tristen Critchfield Sep 21, 2021

A bantamweight clash pitting Yadong Song against Julio Arce is on tap for a UFC card on Nov. 13.

MMA DNA was first to report the booking. The card is expected to take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and is headlined by a featherweight tilt between Max Holloway and Yair Rodriguez.

Song has lost just one of his first eight Octagon appearances, falling to Kyler Phillips via unanimous decision at UFC 259. Most recently, the 23-year-old Team Alpha Male representative garnered a split verdict against Casey Kenney at UFC 265 on Aug. 7.

Arce returned for the first time in nearly two years at UFC on ESPN 27, where he defeated Andre Ewell via second-round TKO on July 24. The Dana White’s Contender Series alum is 4-2 during his promotional tenure, with other wins over Julian Erosa, Daniel Teymur and Dan Ige.
