The Ultimate Fighting Champion lands in Greenville, South Carolina, this week for UFC on ESPN+ 12: Moicano vs. Korean Zombie.
A featherweight feature fight tops the bill in Greenville, South Carolina, as Renato Moicano and Chan Sung Jung (aka the Korean Zombie) go head to head in the main event with the winner hoping to stay in the thick of title talk.
Moicano (13-2-1) has twice been on the cusp of getting a crack at the UFC featherweight belt currently wrapped around Max Holloway’s waist. After opening his UFC tenure with three consecutive victories, he was roadblocked by Brian Ortega. Having then righted the ship with back-to-back victories over Calvin Kattar and Cub Swanson, Moicano then stumbled against former featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo.
Jung (14-5) failed to wrest the belt from Aldo in their 2013 clash. He was then absent from the Octagon for the next few years as he fulfilled his required military obligation in his home country of South Korea.
Hoping to jump right back to the top of the division, Jung defeated Dennis Bermudez with a first-round knockout in February of 2017. He then spent the next year nursing a knee injury before returning in November of 2018, where he lost to Yair Rodriguez via knockout with one second left in their five-round headlining bout.
The UFC on ESPN+ 12 co-main event was set to feature a rematch between John Lineker and Rob Font. Lineker won their first fight at UFC 198 in May 2016 via a unanimous decision. The rematch was nixed on the morning of weigh-ins, however, when Lineker had to withdraw after suffering a cut above his eye while cutting weight.
With the co-main event cancellation, UFC on ESPN+ 12 moves ahead with 11 bouts.
