UFC on ESPN+ 12: Moicano vs. Korean Zombie predictions
The UFC is in Greenville, South Carolina this weekend as the No. 12 featherweight Korean Zombie Chan Sung Jung (14-5-0) gets his chance to avenge a disappointing loss in his last bout against No. 5 Renato Moicano (13-2-1).
Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.
MAIN CARD (7PM ET/4PM PT)
KEVIN HOLLAND (14-4-0) VS. ALESSIO DI CHIRICO (12-2-0)
Andrews: Tough call here as both guys have elevated their games in recent fights. Holland has the physical edge, but I am pressed with Di Chirico’s knee that finished Bamgbose. I think the Italian has something similar in store for Holland.
Andrews Prediction: Alessio Di Chirico via TKO
ANDREA LEE (10-2-0) VS. MONTANA DE LA ROSA (10-4-0)
Andrews: Another good fight with two streaking fighters. Lee hasn’t lost since March 2016, but can her Muay Thai style overcome De La Rosa. Montana has overcome wrestlers to get the tap and I think she can get Lee down too. Going with Team Takedown.
Andrews Prediction: Montana De La Rosa via submission
ANDRE EWELL (14-5-0) VS. ANDERSON DOS SANTOS (20-7-0)
Andrews: Dos Santos eventually gets Ewell to the ground and gets the tap.
Andrews Prediction: Anderson dos Santos via submission
BRYAN BARBERENA (14-6-0) VS. RANDY BROWN (10-3-0)
Andrews: Both guys have split their recent fights. I like Barberena’s gritty style to eventually prevail over Brown’s heightened reach advantages.
Andrews Prediction: Bryan Barberena via UD
#5 RENATO MOICANO (13-2-1) VS. #12 CHANG SUNG JUNG (14-5-0)
Andrews: Moicano has looked good even in his recent losses but so has Jung. Moicano has current school striking though and I’m not sure Jung can keep up there. Have to go with the skills of Moicano over the toughness of Jung.
ANDREWS PREDICTION: Renato Moicano via UD
