Bantamweight fighters Song Yadong and Casey Kenney will be the first to compete at UFC 265 in Maincard. Will a more experienced American be able to win on August 8 - you will find the answer in our forecast.

Song Yadong

Song Yadong began his professional career in 2013, and he signed a contract with the strongest league at the age of 19 in the world. His overall record is 16 wins, five losses and one draw. He had seven fights in the UFC and was stronger than his opponents five times. However, of the three previous bouts, the 23-year-old Chinese won only once, and was defeated by a unanimous decision to Kyler Phillips in the last meeting.

The Chinese fighter is fluent in jiu-jitsu and is quite resilient, there is not a single early defeat in his career in the UFC, but he still has little experience of serious performances.

Casey Kenney

Casey Kenney has been pro since 2014 and won 11 times in 13 fights before joining the UFC. His overall record consists of 16 wins, three losses and one draw, and before losing in the previous fight to ex-champion Dominique Cruz by split decision, the 30-year-old American had a good streak of three successful fights.

Casey is an all-rounder with good striking technique and assertiveness, has black belts in judo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, feels quite confident in the horizontal plane and has never lost early in his career.

All predictions for Fighting


  • Casey Kenney has won three times in his last four fights.
  • Song Yadong has won only one fight out of three previous ones.
  • Casey Kenney got a third of his victories by submission.

Our Prediction

The fighters are approximately equal in anthropometry and fighting style. The American surpasses his opponent in the fight and, most likely, will look for chances to transfer and end the fight with a painful or choke hold. In a standing position, the Chinese have not much more chances, since their skills are almost the same here. In our opinion, it is worth giving preference to the American athlete in view of the fact that he is more active and smart on the ground and has won a considerable number of victories by submission.

Our prediction is Casey Kenney's victory with a coefficient of 1.80 on 1xbet.
