UFC Vegas 72: Song vs. Simon live stream without Reddit streams, Buffstreams or Crackstream


Here is how you can stream UFC Vegas 72: Song vs. Simon live without the use of Reddit Streams, Buffstream or Crackstreams

It’s possible that Saturday’s UFC APEX may be a prime example of how one person’s misfortune can give another the chance to shine.

After the initial main event between lightweight contenders Armen Tsarukuyan and Renato Moicano had to be postponed due to an injury to the Brazilian, the fight between bantamweight stars Song Yadong and Ricky Simon was moved up to take centre stage this weekend.

The second consecutive event at the UFC’s in-house arena gives Song and Simon a chance to steal the show, while also giving several debuting talents, a collection of Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS) graduates, and a bunch of aspiring competitors a chance to make the kind of statement that will propel them to even bigger matchups and more prominence in the second half of the year.

We take a close look at the bouts that will take place inside the Octagon this coming Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday, a pivotal bout between two of the world’s best bantamweights, Song Yadong and Ricky Simon, will take place where it was originally scheduled to go down last weekend.

As a 25-year-old with a tonne of experience and a certain spot in the Top 10 of the stacked bantamweight division, Song is a man in between worlds. After losing to Cory Sandhagen last weekend, a fight in which he was competitive until a cut forced him to stop, he enters this weekend’s bout looking to reaffirm his status as one of the top young stars in the dangerous 135-pound ranks with a victory.

With an 8-2 record inside the Octagon and a current five-fight winning streak, Simon flies into Las Vegas as the division’s No. 10 contender. Two of his last four fights have ended in a draw, and he defeated Jack Shore for the first time in his career in July.

Unlike the main event, this fight doesn’t have any bearing on the championship picture, but it does feature a fascinating matchup between two competitors who both hope to become champions in the future. It will be interesting to watch if Simon, at age 30, can exploit his increased sense of urgency to propel him to victory, or if Song, at age 20, can fend him off and maintain his position at the top.


In the evening’s co-main event, rising middleweights Caio Borralho and Michal Oleksiejczuk will meet.

Borralho won two bouts on DWCS Season 5 to earn a contract with the UFC, and he went on to sweep his first three battles in the promotion. A member of the Fighting Nerds, “Natural” is 30 years old, has fought 13 times, is currently on a 10-fight winning streak, and is undefeated in his last 13.

Polish fighter Oleksiejczuk started out 2018 still competing at light heavyweight, but after a loss to Dustin Jacoby at UFC 272, he dropped down to the 185-pound division. The 28-year-old boxer stopped both Sam Alvey and Cody Brundage in the first round of their respective fights in his first two middleweight appearances.

In what appears to be a “grappler versus striker” contest, Borralho will try to close the distance, clinch, and wrestle, while Oleksiejczuk will do his best to keep distance and unleash his hands. Whichever individual is better at carrying out his strategy is the one who will likely keep winning and go further in his division.

Rodolfo Vieira, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion, and Cody Brundage, a former Division I wrestler, will square off at middleweight in another featured bout on the main card. 

Beginning his mixed martial arts career with five straight victories, Vieira quickly earned a spot in the UFC and continued his winning ways with victory in his first two appearances in the Octagon. The 33-year-old has a 1-2 record since then, with losses to Anthony Hernandez and Chris Curtis sandwiching a hard-fought victory over Dustin Stoltzfus.

Brundage got his foot in the door with the UFC with a last-minute bout against Nick Maximov, and after first-round victories over Dalcha Lungiambula and Tresean Gore, the Factory X fighter was looking good heading into the last month of 2017. His momentum was halted by the loss against Oleksiejczuk, but a win over Vieira and more success for “Hussar” later in the evening would do much to restore his standing.

Julian Erosa, a UFC veteran and featherweight, returns to his adoptive homeland of Las Vegas this weekend to welcome Fernando Padilla to the organisation. After suffering a disappointing first-round loss to Alex Caceres in his most recent outing, “Juicy J” is eager to get back into the victory column. Padilla, who has a record of 14-4, returns to the ring for the first time in nearly two years after winning four of his last five bouts, including a second-round knockout victory in front of the Lookin’ for a Fight crew.
