Song Yadong made quick work of a former title challenger at UFC Vegas 50. After a few exchanges against Marlon Moraes, the rising prospect finally landed a flush shot halfway through the first round, which sent ‘Magic’ to the canvas already out. On Twitter, pro fighters reacted to the finish.
I’m thinking Marlon breaks his streak tonight and gets back in the win column. If he doesn’t go beast mode in the first minute and Miss the finish, he’ll win it. But the chin…still questioning that. #UFCVegas50— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) March 13, 2022

Tough break man. I feel for Moraes. I don’t think it’s lack of skill at all. If your chin can’t hold up against “bangers”, when you’re a banger, there’s only 1 result. Nothing away from Yadong, the kid is good! Powerful, quick, explosive! #UFCVegas50— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) March 13, 2022
