Fights on Tap is a weekly roundup of all the fights booked in the UFC, Bellator and other promotions.

We hope you all are enjoying the break from our busy schedule.

This past week, the UFC either announced or finalized 14 fights, and a clash of ranked bantamweight contenders has been confirmed for early next year. Marlon Moraes and Song Yadong are expected to meet in March, with a location and venue not yet determined. The one-time title challenger hopes to snap a three-fight losing streak, while the Team Alpha Male product looks to build on his momentum following wins over Casey Kenney and Julio Arce.

Bellator has a pivotal welterweight fight between Neiman Gracie and Logan Storley planned for Bellator 274 in February. Known for his jiu-jitsu prowess, Gracie recently earned the first knockout of his professional career, an 87-second TKO of Mark Lemminger at Bellator 266. At Bellator 265, Storley rebounded from a loss to Yaroslav Amosov and defeated Dante Schiro by split decision.
