UFC has confirmed rising bantamweight Song Yadong will square off against Alejandro Perez at UFC 239 in Las Vegas.

The pair were originally scheduled to meet at UFC 235, but Song suffered a knee injury and was forced to postpone.

The bout has now been rebooked for 7 July.

Undefeated since 2016, Song’s run in the UFC has seen him tear through all three opponents, including Bharat Khandare and Felipe Arantes.

At UFC Fight Night 141 last November, Song (14-4) defeated Vince Morales to extend his streak to six wins.

Perez (21-7-1) had an equally impressive six-fight run with the UFC until being stopped by Cody Stamann earlier this year.

UFC 239 takes place in Las Vegas on 7 July. There will be two championship titles on the line as Jon Jones meets Thiago Santos at light heavyweight, while Amanda Nunes defends her featherweight crown against the dangerous Holly Holm.

A welterweight bout between Jorge Masvidal and Ben Askren has also been lined up.
