UFC Fight Night 154 is set for Saturday, and the main card features what should be a terrific bout. Renato Moicano will be taking on Chan Sung Jung, and both fighters have been impressive in recent fights. Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, S.C., will be the host for this event that will feature a 12-fight card.
Moicano comes into this fight as the fifth-ranked fighter in the featherweight division and has a record of 13-2-1. He stands 5-11 tall and will weigh in right at 145 pounds. Jung goes by the nickname, “The Korean Zombie,” and will stand 5-7 tall and weigh the same at 145 pounds. Jung is ranked 12th in the featherweight division, and he will be considered the underdog in this bout. Moicano is -200 to win this fight while Jung checks in at +160.
Moicano Will Be On The Attack
Moicano will be looking to increase his ranking in this fight in hopes for another shot at the featherweight belt. He has looked extremely impressive throughout his career, and his only two losses have come to two of the top fighters in the UFC. Jose Aldo earned a TKO victory over Moicano, and Brian Ortega was able to get Moicano to submit in their bout. The Brazilian fighter has been able to pick apart the rest of the fighters that he has faced.
Moicano will likely use his height advantage to help him in this fight against Jung. He is a Muay Thai specialist, which means that he will combine leg kicks and jabs in an extremely aggressive fashion. The Brazilian has also shown to be a capable fighter while on the mat, and experts have marveled at his fitness and stamina in recent fights. It takes a special fighter to be able to beat him.
Jung Wants To Brawl
The Korean Zombie is one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC, and fans love watching his fights. Jung isn’t afraid to scrap his plan and turn the fight into a brawl, and that will likely be his strategy in this fight. The Korean will be looking to keep the pressure on Moicano in hopes to find a spot to land some blows.
Jung’s fighting strategy isn’t always the smartest, but it is definitely very entertaining. Jung is trying to bounce back after suffering a last-second knockout in his previous fight against Yair Rodriguez. The Korean was winning that fight on the scorecard, but his brawl mentality got him too close to his opponent and cost him the fight.
Moicano Wins Featherweight Bout
This should be another extremely entertaining fight, which is what ESPN wanted when they made an agreement with the UFC. Both of these fighters are extremely aggressive, and there will be plenty of blood on the mat after this fight is over. Jung isn’t afraid to turn the fight into an all-out brawl, but Moicano just has too much strength and stamina to lose this fight. Bet Renato Moicano -200 over Chan Sung Jung to win the featherweight bout at UFC Fight Night 154.
