In particular, targeting Clark, an opponent who is good at wrestling, “I will draw a picture that will end with a pounding on the ground. I will make you feel the pain of being short of breath. My opponent lacks the ability to escape, so if I press on him, his stamina will be exhausted.” did.
Jung Da-un, who made his UFC debut in 2019, continued his undefeated streak in five consecutive matches, and then fell on the ‘bottom’ of the Octagon for the first time with a KO in the first round against Dustin Jacobi (36, USA) in July of last year.
Jung Da-un, who was frustrated at the threshold of entering Asia’s first UFC light heavyweight ranking (15th), is well aware of the importance of his first comeback fight against Clark after a loss.
