Main Card

Da Un Jung

Da Un Jung is a 31-year-old fighter from Daegu, South Korea. He fights at the light heavyweight division and trains at the Korean Top Team. Jung made his debut in the UFC just this August and he impressed with a Guillotine Choke over Khadis Ibragimov in the third round. Prior to coming to the UFC, the last time Jung experienced defeat was back in August 2015. Since then, he went on to an 11-fight winning streak with most of his fights ended via knockout. Fighting in front of the Korean crowd will give Jung the boost to battle Mike Rodriguez. Expect Jung to look for the KO. As his habit goes, he sizes up his opponent in the first round and makes his move on the adjustments in later rounds. Expect Jung to start slow but will look to finish explosively once he gets his grove.

Mike Rodriguez

Rodriguez is a 6-foot-3 American light heavyweight fighter hailing from Boston, Massachusetts. He currently stables at Lauzon MMA and will to bounce back from a loss just this July. Rodriguez was discovered at Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender series in 2017 and his flying knee KO over his opponent earned his ticket to the UFC roster. But it was not quite the results that Rodriguez expected as he just took home one win in three matches since entering the UFC in 2018.

Still, Rodriguez owns one of the deadliest knees in the business and that is what Jung will try to avoid. Rodriguez’ opponents will try to put the fight into the hands of the judges’ scores as three of his losses came from unanimous decisions. Mike Rodriguez was only submitted once in his entire career. Look for this fighter to be the aggressor in the first round as he tries to control the match with his hands.
