Song Yadong and Casey Kenney will fight in a bantamweight bout in UFC 265 on the main card, which is set to get start at 10:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, August 7th from the Toyota Center in Houston. Oddsmakers expect this to be one of the most competitive fights of the night without a significant favorite.

Yadong went nine fights without a loss until his last bout on March 6th of this year against Kyler Phillips in a unanimous decision. Kenney is also coming off a loss on the same night against Dominick Cruz. Heading into that bout, he won nine of his previous 10 fights. Yadong will enter with a 16-5-1 professional record, and Kenney is 16-3-1 heading into Saturday night’s fight.

Here are the odds and betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook for Song Yadong vs. Casey Kenney at UFC 265 on Saturday, August 7.
