Chan Sung Jung vs Dan Ige Predictions & Tips


Chan Sung Jung and Dan Ige could serve up a five-round thriller.

These two men are outstanding strikers who are known for producing fireworks and that trend could continue.

The bookies are struggling to split them and I can see why after Jung underwhelmed last time out.

I don’t think he’s washed up just yet though and he could prove that Ige has more work to do to become a serious contender.

  • Chan Sung Jung has fought the best at featherweight for a decade
  • Chan Sung Jung has not lost to a fighter outside of the top 5 in a decade
  • Chan Sung Jung records 4.25 significant strikes per minute
  • Chan Sung Jung has a 75% takedown defence
  • Dan Ige is 1-1 against fighters ranked in the top 10

Chan Sung Jung Form


Chan Sung Jung has gone 3-2 since returning from a mandatory spell with the South Korean military that halted his career for a few years.

‘Korean Zombie’ spent three-and-a-half years out of the Octagon but made up for lost time when he stopped Dennis Bermudez inside three minutes in his return fight.

He looked to be on course for back-to-back wins in his next outing, only to be denied by one of the greatest finishes in UFC history.

Yair Rodriguez uncorked a picture perfect elbow from a bizarre angle to knock out Jung with just one second left on the clock.

The South Korean rebounded in style with a couple of first-round finishes of Renato Moicano and Frankie Edgar, but his momentum stalled last October.

Jung underwhelmed as he was dropped multiple times in a decision defeat to Brian Ortega.

As a result ‘Korean Zombie’ goes into this fight with a 16-6 record that consists of six KO/TKO victories and eight submission successes. He has been knocked out three times.

Dan Ige Form


Dan Ige is a rising star in the UFC featherweight division having gone 7-2 since putting pen-to-paper on a deal with the company.

Ige mis-fired in his debut as he was bested over three rounds by Julio Arce, but he responded to that loss with a six-fight win streak.

He stopped Mike Santiago with strikes in 50 seconds in his sophomore outing and then beat Jordan Griffin by decision.

Ige made it three-in-a-row when he submitted Danny Henry in March 2019, but that would be his last stoppage win for two years.

A unanimous decision success against Kevin Aguilar was followed up by split decision wins over Mirsad Bektic and Edson Barboza – his only top 10 scalp to date.

His rise was then halted by a decision loss to Calvin Katter, but Ige emphatically responded with a 22-second knockout of Gavin Tucker in March.

Ige possesses a 15-3 record with four wins coming via strikes and five via submission. He has never been stopped in his career.

Verdict

This is a tough one to call because you could make a case for either man.

Jung has the better track record so I lean towards him, but whoever takes this may have to be on their game for the full five rounds.
