UFC Fight Night 203: Marlon Moraes vs. Song Yadong Betting Information
Marlon Moraes fell down in the bantamweight standings to 10th place after losing three consecutive matches. It was hard to watch Moraes drop on the floor three times via knockout during the losing streak as well. Heading to this matchup, his recent performances put him as the underdog fighter against Song Yadong. The last time that Moraes tasted a win was back in December 2019 against legendary fighter Jose Aldo. Prior to that, Moraes was once a title contender and had a memorable matchup with Henry Cejudo. Among the fighters that defeated him in the stretch were Cory Sandhagen, Rob Font, and Merab Dvalishvili.
Song Yadong already had 10 matches in the UFC and has only lost once. That defeat was against Kyler Phillips in UFC 259. Some say that Song should have stayed as an undefeated fighter in the UFC as he makes a good case for winning the bout against Phillips. Nonetheless, the Chinese fighter looks to crack the top 10 rankings in the heavily stacked bantamweight division with a win over Marlo Moraes. The young 24-year-old fighter from Tianjin still has a lot of upside in his career and this could be a start for his climb to become a title contender in the bantamweight rankings.
