Fans have been asking for months what the main event of UFC Fight Night 154 would be, and for the longest time, no one knew. The event takes place June 22 at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina, and also local boy Stephen”Wonderboy” Thompson unavailable to fight so soon after the beating he took against Anthony Pettis in March, it was difficult to predict who would headline the card.
We understand.
The UFC announced this week that the main event of UFC Fight Night 154 will be an exciting five-round featherweight struggle between”The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung and Renato Moicano. These are a couple of the best featherweights in the world, which fight should be a lot of fun. It May not be a title fight, but you’d be hard-pressed to view some fans complain about this fight Jung (14-5) is coming from a last-second KO loss to Yair Rodriguez in UFC Fight Night 139 in one of the greatest 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 in the 4:59 mark of the fifth round and suffered a shocking knockout loss. His UFC record dropped but the fact says everything about Jung. Win or lose, Jung is one of the fighters we’ve ever seen in this game. It’ll be difficult to recuperate from such a brutal KO after such a war of a struggle, however after taking over six weeks off to heal up, hopefully he’s 100% healthy and good to go for this battle. The reduction to Rodriguez knocked him from this featherweight title picture for now, but when he can conquer Moicano, he will jump right back into the mix.
Moicano (13-2-1) is coming from a brutal KO reduction, this one to Jose Aldo back in UFC Fight Night 144. Like Jung, Moicano was winning the struggle until Aldo turned back the clock unleashed a violent flurry of strikes that transpired Moicano out. Overall he’s 5-2 at the UFC and one of the featherweights in the world. Aside from losses to Aldo and Brian Ortega — there’s no shame to losing to either of these men — Moicano has been among the best featherweights from the UFC otherwise. Like Jung, he needs to rally from his last loss to be able to rejoin the featherweight title combination, but there’s no reason to thing that he can not do it.
The chances for this fight ought to be interesting when they come outside, but if I had to guess, Moicano will be slightly preferred. Bettors will probably be looking to fade Jung coming off of the lousy autumn while Moicano is somebody who constantly gets a ton of respect from the betting public. Nonetheless, it’s definitely a close fight that could go either way, and MMA fans in Carolina ought to be excited they landed this exciting struggle as the main event of UFC Fight Night 154.
