Fans have been asking for months what the main event of UFC Fight Night 154 would be, and for the longest period, nobody understood. The event takes place June 22 in Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina, and also neighborhood boy Stephen”Wonderboy” Thompson unavailable to fight soon after the beating he took against Anthony Pettis in March, it was hard to predict who would headline the card.
We know.
The UFC announced this week that the main event of UFC Fight Night 154 is going to be an exciting five-round featherweight fight between”The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung and Renato Moicano. These are two of the best featherweights in the world, and this fight should be a good deal of fun. It May not be a title fight, but you would be hard-pressed to view any fans whine about this struggle Jung (14-5) is coming off of a last-second KO loss to Yair Rodriguez in UFC Fight Night 139 in one of the most significant MMA fights of all time. Jung was well on his way to winning the bout before he got caught with an unorthodox upward elbow by Rodriguez at the 4:59 mark of the fifth round and suffered a shocking knockout loss. The defeat dropped his general UFC record to 4-2, but the truth he’s won six bucks in six UFC fights says everything about Jung. Lose or win, Jung is one. It will be difficult to recuperate from such a barbarous KO following such a warfare of a struggle, however after taking over six weeks off to heal up, hopefully he is 100 percent healthy and good to go for this battle. The loss to Rodriguez knocked him from the featherweight title picture for now, but if he could beat Moicano, he will jump right back in the mix.
Moicano (13-2-1) is coming from a brutal KO loss, this one to Jose Aldo back in UFC Fight Night 144. Like Jung, Moicano was winning the fight till Aldo turned the clock back unleashed a violent flurry of strikes that knocked Moicano out. He’s one of the best featherweights in the world and 5-2 at the UFC. Aside from losses to Aldo and Brian Ortega — there’s no shame to shedding to either of those men — Moicano has been one of the best featherweights from the UFC differently. Like Jung, he needs to rally from his last reduction to be able to rejoin the featherweight title mix, but there is no reason to thing he can not do it.
The chances for this fight ought to be interesting when they come outside, but when I had to guess, Moicano will be marginally preferred. Bettors will likely be seeking to fade Jung coming off of the bad loss while Moicano is somebody who always gets a ton of respect from the betting public. But it’s definitely a close fight that could go either way, and MMA fans in Carolina should be excited they landed such an exciting fight as the main event of UFC Fight Night 154.
