by admin

The upcoming UFC 292 fight card, set for August 19 at the TD Garden in Boston, has a new intriguing addition: a bantamweight clash between Rob Font and Song Yadong.

The announcement of this match-up was made official by UFC representatives on Wednesday.

Font is bouncing back from a couple of consecutive losses, but showed impressive resilience by beating Adrian Yanez in April with a knockout in the first round. This victory not only put him back on the winning track but also earned him a Performance of the Night bonus. Font’s recent record stands at 5 wins and 2 losses in his last seven bouts, with notable victories over former UFC champion Cody Garbrandt, present Bellator champion Sergio Pettis, and Ricky Simon.

On the other side of the octagon, Song, a 25-year-old rising star from China, has been consistently climbing the 135-pound rankings. Despite facing a bump in the road against Cory Sandhagen last September, he quickly recovered with a victory against Simon in April, bringing his recent record to 4 wins and 1 loss in his last five fights.

The upcoming bout with Font offers Song the opportunity for what could be the most significant win of his career. This bantamweight confrontation is part of an impressive UFC 292 card in Boston, headlined by the current 135-pound champion Aljamain Sterling defending his title against Sean O’Malley.
