Da Un Jung


South Korea

Drops decisions as big favorite
Light HeavyweightUFC
February 5, 2023
Jung lost to Devin Clark via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Undefeated (4-0-1) in his first five UFC appearances, it's all fallen apart for Jung his last two times out. He was knocked out by Dustin Jacoby in just over three minutes last July and wasn't the least bit competitive against Clark in this one despite entering as a -275 favorite. Jung's ineffectiveness on the feet seemingly forced him to defend takedown attempts from Clark the entire fight. Jung brings plenty of power to the table and not a heck of a lot else, so he's going to struggle to win fights in which he's credited with all of 18 significant strikes landed. The 29-year-old needs to do whatever is necessary to ensure he emerges with a win his next time out. Jung's job will likely be on the line.

To face Clark in Seoul
Light HeavyweightUFC
October 20, 2022
Jung will take on Devin Clark in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC Seoul on Feb. 4, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
Jung is off to a 4-1-1 start to his UFC run after taking his first loss with the company against Dustin Jacoby back in July. It was the first time he had been finished via strikes in his professional career. He'll now look to bounce back against Clark, a lower-volume, wrestling-heavy fighter who is 1-3 in his last four trips to the Octagon. Jung will carry four-inch height and three-inch reach advantages into the cage.
Suffers first UFC defeat
Light HeavyweightUFC
July 16, 2022
Jung lost to Dustin Jacoby via KO (punch) at 3:13 of Round 1 at UFC on ABC 3 on Saturday on Long Island.
Jung entered with an undefeated mark in his first five UFC bouts (4-0-1), but one massive right hand from Jacoby put an end to that. Jung didn't appear to be out cold after the shot connected and quickly recovered, but Jacoby walked away and referee Kevin MacDonald played along, immediately halting the bout. Jung is young enough at age 28 to rebound from this, but it's a clear setback in a fight in which he entered as a slight (-120) betting favorite.

Jung is set to take on Dustin Jacoby in a light heavyweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for July 16, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
Jung is looking to extend his 14-match unbeaten streak, with his last five fights being in the UFC (4-0-1). The Korean fighter has a half-inch reach advantage over Jacoby. Jung has not entered the Octagon since Nov. 13, when he defeated Kennedy Nzechukwu in a first round KO/TKO.
Excellent effort in Vegas opener

Jung defeated Kennedy Nzechukwu via KO (elbows) at 3:04 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Entering on a 14-fight unbeaten streak, this was Jung's most impressive performance to date. Although he's been successful in the UFC, some of his efforts have been middling. This was not one of them. With the two men engaged in a stand-up affair, Jung made the brilliant decision to flip the script and start unloading elbows on Nzechukwu, and it won him the fight. All the hard shots eventually forced his opponent to the mat and led to referee Chris Tognoni stepping in. It was an excellent performance from Jung, who entered as an extremely slight -125 favorite.

Un Jung's upcoming fight against Kennedy Nzechukwu has been rescheduled for Nov. 13, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
It's unclear what caused the fight to be postponed but Un Jung will now have just over a month to prepare extra. The 27-year-old is looking to remain undefeated in the UFC after getting off to a 3-0-1 start. He most recently defeated William Knight via unanimous decision back in April.
