With a professional record of 17 wins, 5 losses, and 1 draw, Song has found success both inside and outside of the octagon. As one of the most exciting fighters in the sport today, Song’s abilities have been recognized by many top names in MMA.

During this time period from 2016-2018, Song took part in 13 fights under Kunlun Fight where he gained invaluable experience against some high-level opponents before eventually making his way to UFC after being signed on May 28th 2018 following an impressive performance against Russian fighter Kurbanov Magomedkhan where he won by submission via triangle choke within two minutes into the first round.

Upon entering UFC territory for the first time ever at UFC Fight Night 142: Dos Santos vs Tuivasa back on December 2nd 2018 which was also held at Adelaide Entertainment Center located down under Australia , Yadong made quite an impression as he managed to defeat fellow debutant Damien Brown via unanimous decision after 3 rounds of intense action which earned him “Performance Of The Night” honors and $50 000 bonus given out by UFC organization afterwards that night itself . This victory set him up nicely for what would be another memorable bout against Felipe Colares where again victorious song defeated Colares via unanimous decision , once more proving that early hype around him was not unfounded .

Outside cage Song likes spending free time casually playing video games or participating various outdoor activities such as rock climbing or mountain biking looking for something new every day trying broaden already established horizon about life even further helping him reach peak form when fighting nights come knocking doors . All these experiences help shape athlete who will go far providing entertainment value while trying climb ranks becoming true world class contender someday soon keeping focus alive along way too not get distracted from main goal chasing dream until very end !
