Slumping Korean Zombie
Now Chan Sung Jung brings a UFC betting odds record of 14-5. UFC featherweight rankings have him at 12th. The Korean Zombie has lost two of his last three bouts. Last time out was a knockout defeat to Yair Rodriguez on November 10. Rodriguez scored the elbow KO at 4:59 of the fifth round. Of course, Jung is best known for his loss in the UFC featherweight championship. Jose Aldo won that title fight on August 3, 2013 by technical knockout.
Moicano Also Hurting
By contrast Renato Moicano is ranked fifth in the UFC featherweight class. Moicano has an online betting record of 13-2. Moicano is also coming off a loss in his last bout. To show on February 2, 2019 Moicano lost by technical knockout to Jose Aldo. The fight ended at the 0:44 mark of the second round. For Moicano it was his second loss in four fights.
John Lineker vs. Rob Font
In a similar predicament is John Lineker. April 27, 2019 saw him lose a split decision to Cory Sandhagen. Lineker is ranked 10th in the UFC bantamweight rankings. His career record is 31-9. By contrast Rob Font has a career mark of 16-4. UFC bantamweight rankings have him at 12th best. Late on Font is coming off a unanimous decision win over Sergio Pettis. That bout was held in Milwaukee on December 15, 2018.
Bryan Barberena vs. Randy Brown
Bryan Barberena has a career record of 14-6. Of great concern is that he lost three of his last five bouts. Barberena is coming off a technical knockout loss to Vincente Luque.
