UFC Fight Night 154 Betting Preview: Jung vs. Moicano and Ige vs. Aguilar
A quick look at two fights slated for this weekend’s UFC Fight Night 154 in Greenville, SC.
Chan Sung Jung (+175) vs. Renato Moicano (-210)
Chan Sung Jung, AKA The Korean Zombie (14-5), looks to bounce back after a devastating last second lost to Yair Rodriguez back in November. Jung and his exciting style will be matched up against the technical style of Renato Moicano (13-2-1). For Moicano to secure the win, he will have to employ a good jab and utilize his leg kicks to stall Jung, who will relentlessly move forward. If he can do this, he should win a decision. The potential is also there for a knockout, but Moicano has yet to win a professional fight by KO/TKO. Jung, on the other hand, has never been submitted. He brings a tenacious non-stop effort, which should make this an exciting fight to watch. The Korean Zombie can win this fight standing, or if it gets to the mat (eight submission wins). If Jung can get the fight into the later rounds, he will have an advantage. Renato, a Brazilian who trains out of American Top Team in South Florida, has never been in a five-round fight. If Moicano can control the distance and keep it technical, he has the upper hand. This should be the most entertaining fight of the night.
Dan Ige (+130) vs. Kevin Aguilar (-150)
In a matchup of young featherweights (145 lbs.), Dan Ige (11-2) faces Kevin Aguilar (17-1). Ige, a 27-year-old native of Hawaii, is 3-1 in the UFC with his most recent victory coming in the first round with a submission over Danny Henry. Aguilar enters on a nine-fight win streak and is 2-0 in the UFC. Aguilar’s nickname is “The Angel of Death” and fights out of Longview, Texas. Kevin has a simple approach and does not get out of line. He will look to take your head off and can easily win this fight by knockout (10 KO/TKO in 17 wins). Ige tends to be a bit more well-rounded (five submissions in 11 wins). He has three knockout wins including a first-round stoppage of Mike Santiago in 2018. Two great athletes squaring off should make for one of the more entertaining fights of the night.
