Jun Yong Park

Jun Yong Park carries a very interesting ring name as “The Iron Turtle” and he came all the way from Seoul, South Korea for this matchup. He gets to represent the famous World Top Team in his professional career. Park stands at six feet and this 30-year-old has been competing at the middleweight division. He will be carrying a professional MMA record of 13-4 and 10 of his wins are split between knockouts and decisions.  After losing his debut match against Anthony Hernandez, Park proved that he is worthy to be on the UFC roster by winning his next three matches. Marc-Andre Bariault, John Phillps and Tafon Nchukwhi are his fallen opponents in that streak.  

Gregory Rodrigues

Gregory Rodrigues is in the last year of his 20s and this fighter’s hometown is located in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. This fighter’s professional career has been handled by the X-Gym fight stable and will represent them as well. Rodrigues goes by the ring name “Robocop” and he is a six-foot-two middleweight fighter. He has only lost three times in 13 matches. His wins are divided into four knockouts, four submissions, and two decisions. This fighter just made his debut in the organization during UFC Fight Night 189 just this June. He went up against Dusko Todorovic and that match went to a full three rounds and resulted in a unanimous decision win for Rodrigues.
