UFC 211: Yair Rodriguez – 2017 Is My Year

Yair Rodriguez is one of the most exciting prospects to come along in the UFC in quite some time.

On Thursday, the UFC posted a video telling the life story of the featherweight prospect.

In the video, which can be seen below, you can see Rodriguez’s humble beginnings in Mexico and watch his journey to get to the UFC.

Rodriguez is unbeaten in the UFC and is currently on an eight-fight win streak. His last six fights have taken place in the world’s premiere MMA organization.

Rodriguez is coming off a devastating TKO win over former champion BJ Penn. His UFC resume also includes a stunning flying head-kick knockout over Andre Fili and a decision win over Alex Caceres.

On Saturday, Rodriguez will fight in the biggest fight of his career when he fights former champion Frankie Edgar at UFC 211. With a win, Rodriguez could earn a shot at the UFC featherweight title.
