On TUF China Episode 4, Team Lions’ Dong Xin beat Team Dragons’ Albert Cheng by TKO. Unfortunately, Dong broke his thumb in the process which dropped him from the remaining competition.

Team Lions picked their number one featherweight to take on the Dragons’ number two featherweight, relative newcomer to MMA, Fu Changxin. Yang sent Fu to the canvas, pounded on him a bit, then slapped on an arm bar for the finish.
