International attention is focused on who Park Jun-yong (32) will challenge for his 4th straight win and 7th overall win in the UFC.
US internet broadcaster TWSN reported, “Gerald Meerschaart (36) plans the next game with Park Jun-yong.” The mixed martial arts ranking system ‘Fight Matrix’ evaluates Meershardt as the 23rd UFC middleweight (-84kg) and Park Jun-yong as the 26th.
Meershardt has been 10-8 since 2016 in the UFC, which has advanced to the US Resurrection Fighting Alliance champion. In October 2022, he broke his ‘Fight Matrix’ career high with a UFC middleweight ranking of 19th, but in April 2023, his status was somewhat lowered by a TKO loss.
Park Jun-yong won the top spot in the Russian Real Fight middleweight division in 2018 and entered the UFC with 6 wins and 2 losses since 2019. The American mixed martial arts media ‘MMA Mania’ insisted, “We have to fight Kaiu Bohalyu (30, Brazil).”카지노사이트
Bohalho is the 20th ranked UFC middleweight in ‘Fight Matrix’. ▲ 2020 Brazilian Future Middleweight Champion ▲ 2 wins in the Contender Series in 2021 ▲ 4 consecutive wins in the UFC debut from 2022, etc. The steep rise is impressive.
The ‘Contender Series’ is a competition to discover prospects directly hosted by UFC President Dana White (54, USA). There is also an analysis in the US ‘Shdog’ mixed martial arts forum that “Ikram Aliskerov (31, Russia) needs a confrontation with Park Jun-yong to determine if he is a true UFC middleweight powerhouse.”
Aliskerov ▲2012 World Combat Sambo Federation (WCSF) Championships -82kg ▲2012 European Combat Sambo Federation (ECSF) Championships -82kg ▲2016 International Sambo Federation (FIAS) World Championships Combat -90kg ▲2017 European Sambo Confederation (ESF) Championship Combat -82 kg swept the championship.
Sambo is a Russian martial art that looks like a mix of judo and wrestling. ‘Combat’ is a sambo event that is most similar to mixed martial arts. Aliskerov impressed by winning the Contender Series in September 2022 and his UFC debut in May 2023 in a total of 4 minutes and 19 seconds.
‘MMA maniac’ said, “Park Jun-yong is a player who worked well with his own efforts after entering the UFC,” and praised him for leaping to the top 30 middleweight class without any consideration from the event company. This is why attention is focused on the ninth matchup of the UFC.
