The UFC 239 preliminary card on ESPN kicked off with a bang. Bantamweight prospect Song Yadong made a statement to the rest of the 135-pound division with a big first-round knockout win over Alejandro Perez.

Yadong caught Perez coming inside with a big right hand that dropped him down to the canvas. After a few follow-up shots on the ground, the referee stepped in after having seen enough.
