Renato Moicano vs Chan Sung Jung Prediction & Betting Odds - UFC Fight Night 154
June 19, 2019
Renato Moicano (13-2-1) fights Chan Sung “The Korean Zombie” Jung (14-5-0) in a Featherweight bout that’s the Main Event at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina on Saturday night.
The Brazilian 30 year-old Moicano comes into the fight on the back of just the second loss of his career following a second round KO defeat to his fellow countryman, the great José Aldo, in February.
Moicano’s only previous defeat before that was to Brian Ortega to a Guillotine Choke in Round 3 of their fight almost two years ago. In between those two losses, Moicano had beaten Calvin Kattar (by Unanimous Decision) and Cub Swanson (with a Rear Naked Choke in the first round)
As a result of a combination of injuries and military service, this will only be the South Korean Jung’s third fight in almost six years. Like Moicano, the 32 year-old is also coming into this fight on the back of a knockout loss after being caught with an elbow by Mexico’s Yair Rodriguez right in the very last second of the bout last November.
The fight was a back-and-forth stand-up battle that “The Korean Zombie” may well have been winning until he was KO’d and was one of the best fights of 2018.
