UFC on ESPN 25: Jung vs. Ige predictions

Excellent opportunity for 'Dynamite 50K'

The UFC is back at the Apex in Las Vegas as featherweights Chang Sung Jung and Dan Ige throw down in the main event.

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

MAIN CARD (7PM ET/4PM PT)

MATT BROWN (22-18-0) VS. DHIEGO LIMA (15-8-0)

UFC Vegas 29

Andrews: Brown is 40 years old here. Lima should be able to outlast him on paper and atone for his last fight, but doesn’t perform well against good competition.

Andrews Prediction: Matt Brown via UD

WELLINGTON TURMAN (16-4-0) VS. BRUNO SILVA (19-6-0)

UFC Vegas 29

Andrews: Turman has lost two of his last three bouts but Silva is returning from a two year suspension from USADA. Turman should be sharper, at least on paper.

Andrews Prediction: Wellington Turman via UD

JULIAN EROSA (25-8-0) VS. SEUNG WOO CHOI (9-3-0)

UFC Vegas 29

Andrews: I like Erosa’s style and aggressiveness. They should overcome the relatively cautious Choi.

Andrews Prediction: Julian Erosa via UD

#15 MARLON VERA (16-7-1) VS. DAVEY GRANT (13-4-0)

Andrews: Vera is still in the rankings but Grant is a good challenge but older at 35. I think Vera will outlast him.

Andrews Prediction: Marlon Vera via UD

#15 ALEKSEI OLEINIK (59-15-1) VS. SERGEY SPIVAK (12-2-0)

Andrews: Oleinik is still rumbling but is slowing down. Spivak needs to connect early and often here and keep it on the feet.

Andrews Prediction: Sergey Spivak via TKO

MAIN EVENT

#4 CHAN SUNG JUNG (16-6-0) VS. #8 DAN IGE (15-3-0)

Andrews: Korean Zombie will be Ige’s biggest opponent. This is almost 50-50 but I will with the upset and Dan Ige to steal the thunder after some early trouble.

Andrews Prediction: Dan Ige via UD
