Biography

TRAINING: 7:00am to 9:00am no gi BJJ training, 3:00pm to 5:00pm boxing or Muay Thai, 7:00pm to 9:00pm strength and conditioning or BJJ with gi

When and why did you start training for fighting?
I got into training because of my older brother Honggang Yao. He was the bantamweight champion at Legend FC and first took me to start training in Chinese wrestling when I was younger. Then he brought me to China Top Team, where I was able to train with Tiequan Zhang, and he has really inspired my MMA dreams to fight in the UFC.

What ranks and titles have you held?
I won the China CKF Championship belt at 60kgs.

Do you have any heroes?
My brother Honggang Yao and China's first UFC fighter Tiequan Zhang.
 
What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? There are already two fighters from China Top Team that compete in the UFC; Tiequan Zhang and Jingliang Li. It gives me a lot of pride to be the third fighter from our team to fight on the greatest MMA proving ground in the world. Unlike Zhang and Li, I am making my UFC debut much younger so I am very excited to display my strengths and skills in the Octagon but also to learn and improve as a martial artist. 
What was your job before you started fighting? I'm from the countryside and grew up on the farm so I worked on the farm until my brother got me into training.

Ranks in any martial arts styles:
I am ranked nationally in Shuaijiao (Chinese wrestling)

Favorite grappling technique:
Rear naked choke

Favorite striking technique:
Boxing
 
• Team Sky Dragons on TUF China

• One win by submission

• One first round finish
