Aldo goes big with a spinning wheel kick just before the horn.

Jung starts swinging and launches another flying knee, but Aldo catches it again and puts the fight back on the mat before the final horn.
Round 4: Jung steps up his pace and starts firing off punches from the opening of the round, but then settles back a little bit after not landing much. Aldo fires at Jung, who cringes with his right shoulder, which appears to be injured. Aldo notices the injury – what looks to be a separated shoulder – and swarms him, driving him to the mat and finishing him off with a furious flurry of punches for the TKO stoppage.
