UFC Fight Night 104: Bermudez vs Korean Zombie predictions

The UFC is in Houston tonight and so is the “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung (13-4-0), fresh from completing his military service to take on former TUF 14 finalist Dennis Bermudez (16-5-0).

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.

MAIN CARD (10PM ET/7PM PT)

#5 JESSICA ANDRADE (15-5-0) VS ANGELA HILL (2-2-0)

UFC Fight Night 104

Andrews: Andrade has looked killer since dropping down to strawweight and while Hill has vastly improved her ground game, Andrade’s grappling and strength will give her problems if the fight goes to the ground. Hill needs to keep it on the feet and pile up points with her striking, but Andrade won’t let her.

Andrews Prediction: Jessica Andrade via submission

ANTHONY HAMILTON (15-6-0) VS MARCEL FORTUNA (8-1-0) 

UFC Fight Night 104

Andrews: Loss, win is the cycle for Hamilton thus far in the UFC. He lost his last fight, so he should win this one, right? He is the bigger fighter, but Fortuna will look for a ground submission. I think Fortuna breaks the cycle and sends Hamilton to his second consecutive loss.

Andrews Prediction: Marcel Fortuna via submission

#6 Ovince St. Preux (19-9-0) vs Volkan Oezdemir (12-1-0)

UFC Fight Night 104

Andrews: Has OSP learned his lesson from the last fight? I don’t know. Despite having the height and reach advantages, he facing a guy with a 75 per cent knockout rate, but with no UFC experience. Despite OSP’s cardio issues, he should get the win if he applies himself.

Andrews Prediction: Ovince St. Preux via TKO

ABEL TRUJILLO (15-6-0, 1NC) VS JAMES VICK (9-1-0)

UFC Fight Night 104

Andrews: Vick has the height and reach advantages, but I think Trujillo will use his takedowns to keep Vick from using them. Assuming Trujillo doesn’t gas out, he should get the decision here.

Andrews Prediction: Abel Trujillo via unanimous decision

#12 ALEXA GRASSO (9-0-0) VS FELICE HERRIG (11-6-0)

UFC Fight Night 104

Andrews: Can Herrig get the fight to the ground? I think she can, but Grasso has the wits to get back up and pile up the points on the feet. Both fighters need to establish their game early, which gives a natural advantage to Grasso’s game.

Andrews Prediction: Alexa Grasso via unanimous decision

MAIN EVENT

#9 DENNIS BERMUDEZ (17-5-0) VS CHAN SUNG JUNG (13-4-0) 

UFC Fight Night 104

Andrews: Jung has world-class octagon experience and the zombie-come-forward mentality, but he’s facing a guy who’s beaten good strikers (Max Holloway) with good takedowns and grappling. He can also strike with power and has good cardio. Jung’s three-plus years of inactivity is also an advantage for Bermudez and unless he can hurt or wear down Bermudez early, the advantage is for “The Menace.”

Andrews Prediction: Dennis Bermudez via unanimous prediction
