Chan Sung Jung comes into this fight with a 16-6 record overall but he has been inconsistent as of late losing three of his last six fights. Jung’s last fight came against Brian Ortega in October of 2020 and he lost that fight by unanimous decision. The Korean Zombie was taken down three times in that fight and also outstruck by over 60 significant strikes, and that led to the loss. Jung is averaging 4.15 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 4.01 significant strikes per minute. Jung usually likes to keep the fight on the feet but he is averaging 0.62 takedowns every 15 minutes, and he is successful on 41 percent of his takedown attempts. Jung is also stopping 75 percent of his opponents takedown attempts. 

On the other side of this matchup is Dan Ige who comes into this fight with a 15-3 record overall and he has won seven of his last eight fights. Ige’s last fight came against Gavin Tucker and it was only 22 seconds into the fight he was able to win it by knockout. The previous two wins by Ige came by split decision so winning that quickly had to feel good. Ige is averaging 3.95 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.35 significant strikes per minute. Ige is averaging 1.68 takedowns every 15 minutes but he is only successful on 27 percent of his takedown attempts. Ige is stopping 58 percent of his opponents' takedown attempts. 

Ige looked good in his last fight, and he is going to get the job done again in this one. The Korean Zombie has shown that his chin at times can be compromised and it’s going to happen again in this game. Back Ige to win this fight.
