Yan Xiaonan faces Ashley Yoder at UFC Singapore
Xiaonan (11-1-0-1) has won four fights out of four in the UFC. She will be looking to break into the top 15 for the first time and establish her title credentials with a win at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Her opponent is Yoder (7-4), who is coming off back to back UFC wins. In her most recent outing the 31 year old scored a decision win against Syuri Kondo at UFC Greenville.
As previously announced Ben Askren will face Demian Maia in the main event of UFC Fight Night 162. The American is a former ONE Championship welterweight champion and has fought in the Singapore Indoor Stadium several times.
The card will also feature Greg Hardy who has been matched with Jarjis Danho. That is one of three heavyweight bouts on the card. In the others Ciryl Gané goes up against Don’Tale Mayes while Sergei Pavlovich takes on Maurice Greene.
UFC on ESPN+ 15 took place in Shenzhen last month while UFC 242 was held in Abu Dhabi last weekend. There is also an event set for Busan on December 21st meaning that the promotion has two cards booked in Asia between now and the end of the year.
