Song Yadong won again at UFC Vegas 50 tonight. The Chinese bantamweight scored the biggest and most impressive victory of his career over Marlon Moraes.
Afterwards Yadong was asked who he wanted to fight next and answered without hesitation:

Yadong wants a shot at Dominick Cruz and didn’t need a translator in order to call for it. He said,
“I want to fight Dominick Cruz next I have a lot of respect for him. When I was young I watched his fights but I want to fight with him. Let’s go!”
Yadong put himself in a strong position to call out just about anyone on the roster after putting away Moraes in under a round. A left hook followed by a right uppercut did the damage and the 24 year old calmly walked away afterwards.
It was his third straight win and the second stoppage in succession for the Chinese bantamweight. He looks set to move up the rankings and bigger fights surely await.
Could a clash with a former bantamweight champion be among them?
