Song Yadong might be the next great prospect to come out of the Team Alpha Male gym.
The 21-year-old bantamweight, who hails from China, slipped a Perez hook while throwing a picture-perfect right hand that landed square on Perez’s jaw. A couple of follow-up punches sealed the deal at the 2:04 mark of the opening round.
Yadong has now won seven straight fights and he is unbeaten in four UFC appearances. He becomes just the second fighter to KO Perez, a veteran of 30 pro bouts.
