Kyung Ho Kang

Mr. Perfect

South Korea

Win streak halted at three
BantamweightUFC
November 20, 2021
Kang lost to Rani Yahya via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
There wasn't much doubt about this one, as Kang took the first round before Yahya came storming back to win each of the final two frames. Kang had a significant edge in terms of striking whenever the two men were at distance, but Yahya is one of the most decorated grapplers in MMA, and Kang found that out first hand. It's essentially impossible to win a three-round decision when 9:12 of the final ten minutes are spent on your back, and this one was not the exception. The setback snaps a three-fight winning streak for "Mr. Perfect."
