It was the sixth straight win for Wang (20-6) and his 12th win since being cut by the UFC in 2015.

Elsewhere on the card hardworking Jinensibieke Asikerbai got a decision win over and knockout phenom Tang Kai, while one of China’s best featherweights Song Yadong defeated the dangerous Edgars Skrīvers by decision.

Up and coming female flyweight Lin Heqin pulled off an impressive TKO victory over Hanna Yurchenkova, with a heavy ground and pound forcing the referee to step in at 3:45 of round 1. With the win, Lin move to 5-2.
