It is Yellow Bamboo, see his pants
Maybe we should start warming up for the striking classes by hitting each other in the head with wood sticks like the exercises the monks like. Iron heads.

Looks more like a sanshou / sanda fighter than a Shaolin monk.

CMA in China is a bit different from the garbage that we generally get in North America, and San Da is a much more widespread. As I understand it, the Shaolin Temple has a very solid San Da program, as we saw here.
I'm more dubious of their Buddhism than of their martial arts.The fool thinks himself immortal,
If he hold back from battle;
But old age will grant him no truce,
Even if spears spare him.

He's not a monk (according to the Temple). He may have trained as the secular disciple, but the Temple could not confirm it.
Regarding all the gossip about this Yi Long and the questions about Shaolin Kung Fu, a person in charge of Shaolin Temple's public communication updated his micro-blog on Dec. 24 and claimed that Yi Long is absolutely not a Shaolin monk and certainly not the "No. 1 Shaolin martial arts monk."
He also told Henan Commercial News that it is hard to judge whether Yi Long is a secular disciple of the Shaolin Temple because of the easy procedure of becoming such a member and the huge number of the Shaolin Temple's secular disciples.
Wu Lin Feng fights are pretty good. Here's an actual sanda/MT matchup, with a nice KO @ 1:56.
Someone needs to turn THAT kick into a gif.

Doesn't Shaolin have all sorts of little kwoons on the mountain but outside the monastery, as to further muddy the waters?
