Both coming off a win, bantamweights Julio Arce and Song Yadong are reportedly scheduled to meet at UFC’s November 13th event. The new booking was first reported by MMA DNA on Monday.
The new fight joins a “Fight Night” card that doesn’t have a confirmed location currently.
Song picked up a victory just last month, fighting to a narrow split decision victory over Casey Kenney. The fight put him back into the win column after taking his first UFC loss earlier this year, getting defeated by Kyler Phillips.
Before that fight, Song had earned five wins and one draw since joining the UFC roster in 2017.
Arce made his return in July, earning a second-round finish victory over Andre Ewell with punches. His previous appearance was in late 2019, where Hakeem Dawodu got a split decision nod over him.
