Song Yadong -190
Song Yadong is coming into the fight here standing at 5’8” and coming in tipping the scales at 145 pounds. When it comes to the reach Yadong has ended up getting a good reach that has ended up getting at 67 inches.
With Yadong he is coming in with an orthodox stance and a striker fighting style. These will definitely help out Yadong at times in this fight to help keep Vera at bay. In the last 5 bouts Yadong has looked decent and ended up getting a 4-0-1 record with the last bout being a draw. In 2 of the other wins Yadong ended up getting them by a KO/TKO win.
Marlon Vera stands at 5’8” and is coming in weighing at 145 pounds. Vera does have a reach advantage that is coming in at 70.5” and that will definitely help Vera out in reaching out and touching someone in the fight here.
Vera is heading into the fight here with a switch style of stance that is going to really be able to come in really well and add to the unpredictability. When it comes to his style, though, Vera has a tendency to use the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu style that can really help in fighting here. Now, his last 5 bouts Vera has looked really good as he has won all five of his bouts. What is really interesting is he has ended up getting 3 TKO/KO in the fights and 2 submission wins.
This is a fight that will show that Yadong is the favored fighter, but the odd thing is in the last 5 bouts Yadong has looked good, but not as fluid and quick on his feet as what Vera has done with the dominating victories that Vera has picked up. Look for Vera to come into the fight here and do quite a bit better and bring home the win. Fight Winner Prediction, Marlon Vera.
