    Fans have been asking for months what the main event of UFC Fight Night 154 is, and for the longest period, no one understood. The event takes place June 22 at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina, and with neighborhood boy Stephen”Wonderboy” Thompson inaccessible to fight soon after the beating he took against Anthony Pettis in March, it was difficult to predict who would headline the card.
    We know.
    The UFC announced this week that the primary event of UFC Fight Night 154 will be a thrilling 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 battle should be a lot of fun. It May not be a title battle, but you’d be hard-pressed to see some lovers whine about this struggle Jung (14-5) is coming off of a last-second KO loss to Yair Rodriguez at UFC Fight Night 139 in one of the greatest MMA fights of all time. Jung was well on his way to winning the bout until he got caught with an unorthodox upward elbow by Rodriguez in the 4:59 mark of the fifth round and endured a shocking knockout loss. His UFC record dropped to 4-2, but the truth he has won six bucks in six UFC battles says everything about Jung. Win or lose, Jung is one of the fighters we have ever seen in the sport. It will be tricky to recuperate from such a barbarous KO after such a warfare of a struggle, but after taking over six weeks off to cure, hopefully he is 100 percent healthy and good to go for this fight. The reduction to Rodriguez knocked him out of this featherweight title picture for the time being, but when he could conquer Moicano, he’ll jump right back in the mix.
    Moicano (13-2-1) is also coming from a brutal KO loss, this one to Jose Aldo back at UFC Fight Night 144. Like Jung, Moicano was winning the fight till Aldo turned the clock back unleashed a violent flurry of strikes that knocked Moicano out. He’s one of the featherweights in the world and 5-2 at the UFC. 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 differently. Like Jung, he needs to rebound from his last loss to be able to rejoin the featherweight title combination, but there is no reason to thing that he can’t do it.
    The odds for this fight should be interesting if they come out, but if I had to guess, Moicano will be marginally preferred. Bettors will likely be seeking to fade Jung coming off of that bad loss while Moicano is someone who always gets a lot of respect from the gambling public. But it’s definitely a close fight that could go either way, and MMA fans in Carolina should be excited they landed this exciting fight as the main event of UFC Fight Night 154.
