Marlon Vera responds to Song Yadong’s call out
After Yadong’s claims and proposal for a rematch on twitter, Vera didn’t take much time to reply back.
The fighter took to Twitter and explained that it took Yadong two years to gather courage and speak out. Vera refused to fight the Chinese now as he revealed that he wants to take on Petr Yan next. But he confirmed that after taking care of Yan he will definitely fight Yadong again.
“Took ya 2 years to grow some balls, been mentor by a bitch will make u one. I got yan ass next but eventually I will kick your ass again,”
Vera is currently on a rise and has won in the last three of his octagon appearances. In his last fight against Rob Font, Vera won the fight via unanimous decision. Vera is currently the #5 ranked fighter in the bantamweight division and is looking forward to getting closer to the title shot.
Yan on the other hand, lost his last fight against champion, Aljamain Sterling at UFC 272. The fight between Vera and Yan if it ever happens would be an impressive bout to watch.
