Bantamweight Battle! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., May 21, 2022, with a must-watch women’s Bantamweight contenders’ bout between former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Holly Holm, taking on No. 5-seeded Ketlen Vieira. In UFC Vegas 55’s co-main event, No. 14-ranked Santiago Ponzinibbio will lock horns with Michel Pereira in an absolute Welterweight firecracker.

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Both fighters fired heavy shots in the early going, but Yadong packed a little more power. Moraes stood his ground and willing exchanged, which allowed Yadong to land a perfectly-timed right uppercut that planted “Magic” on the canvas. Yadong moved in for the kill, but Moraes was already done.

Yadong, 24, has now won his last three trips to the Octagon and currently holds a 8-1-1 record since entering the promotion back in 2017. The young contender has showed enough over the last few years to warrant a shot at the division’s top 10 his next time out.
