Aldo vs. Moraes, Faber vs Yan on UFC 245 I BREAKING NEWS.

Yan (13-1), has been like a whirlwind since joining the UFC in June 2018. Accumulating five wins in less than a year and with only one loss on his record stemming back to 2016, Yan has looks impressive picking up wins over Jimmie Rivera and John Dodson.

Faber (35-10), returned to action in July after a retirement that lasted two and a-half years, he made short work of Ricky Simon who got blitzed in 46 seconds. That didn’t give us enough time to see if Faber’s still got the stamina or has any new tricks in his arsenal to threaten Yan.

Our verdict is that the odds are against Faber here, this is a risky match-up but one he can still pull off. If Faber can pick-up a win here surely the UFC will grant him a title shot against Triple C himself Henry Cejudo.
