Jun-Yong Park is currently 5-2 in the UFC riding a 2-fight win streak after a KO loss to Gregory Rodrigues. Park currently holds the record for the most ground strikes in a 3-round fight, with 258 ground strikes landed in his 2020 bout with Welsh veteran John Phillips. Park has shown his ability as a great boxer but is also exceptionally dangerous once the fight hits the mat. Nicknamed the “Iron Turtle” for good reasons, he is a durable fighter who is going to press and set the pace throughout the fight. Park has an exceptional jab that he will fight behind before finding the perfect moment to pounce. This is one shell you don’t want to find on your back during a fight.
Denis Tiuliuin is coming into this fight with a 1-1 record in the UFC. The Russian fighter boasts a 90% finish rate, all coming from KO or TKO. You can be sure to expect fireworks from the jump when the octagon door closes. Tiulilin has dynamites in his hands and is a versatile striker, proving as much in his last fight finishing his opponent with knee-to-ground strikes. Tiuliun can certainly make this fight a wild brawl and test Park’s resilience early.
Styles certainly make fights, and that is the case here. Expect aggression from both fighters and what could certainly be the fight of the night.
