The UFC will makes its debut in South Carolina as Greenville plays host to UFC Fight Night 154. The main event will feature two featherweights as Renato Moicano takes on former UFC featherweight title challenger, “The Korean Zombie”, Chan Sung Jung.
Interestingly, both fighters are coming off of a loss. Moicano’s loss came in February as he was taken out in round two against the greatest featherweight ever, Jose Aldo. Jung’s loss came in the main event of UFC Fight Night 139 last November. He took on Yair Rodriguez that night in what would turn out to be a fight of the year candidate. The fight was moments away from being decided on the judges scorecards. However, Rodriguez was able to end it in the final seconds with a perfectly placed elbow.
In the night’s co-main event, two well known welterweights clash as Bryan Barberena takes on Randy Brown. Barberena’s last fight came in February as he took on Vicente Luque at UFC on ESPN 1. He would lose the fight, as Luque finished him with strikes in the third round. His opponent, Brown, is also coming off a loss in his most recent fight. The fight took place nearly eleven months ago when he took on Niko Price at UFC Fight Night 133. Price would defeat Brown that night in the second round, knocking him out with punches from the bottom.
