Peep the highlights of the fight courtesy of the UFC’s official Twitter account:
This fight was originally slated to take place at the UFC Beijing card in November 2018. That wasn’t supposed to be as dos Santos had to pull out of the fight due to a partial ligament tear in his right knee.
Dos Santos was fresh off a first-round submission win over Curtis Millender at the FC on ESPN+ 4 in Wichita, Kansas. He’s on a seven-fight winning streak with notable wins over Max Griffin by decision and Sean Strickland via KO.
At UFC Beijing, Jingliang took on newcomer David Zawada that saw Li win with a vicious body shot in the third round. He’s 9-3 under the UFC banner and currently on a three-fight winning streak with the other victory coming over Daichi Abe in June 2018 by unanimous decision.
