HIGH STAKES LIGHTWEIGHT MATCHUP!

Nzechukwu came out slow and it allowed Jung to start timing power hooks through the defense. After a few minutes of action Jung launched a short elbow inside that caught Nzechukwu on the side of the head. Nzechukwu was hurt and stumbled backwards. Jung pursued him and landed a few more elbows before the referee stepped in for the stoppage.

Jung, 27, is now 4-0-1 inside of the Octagon and looks like a sure bet to hit the top 15 in 2022. He’s got power in his hands and hasn’t lost since 2015 so his stock is surely on the rise.
