Chan Sung Jung vs. Frankie Edgar

The Line: -- Over/Under:
The Sajik Arena in South Korea is set to host UFC Fight Night 165. The main event is set to be a battle in the featherweight division between Chan Sung Jung from South Korea and Frankie Edgar from the United States.
Frankie Edgar enters this fight with a record of 22-7-1. The last time that Edgar took the Octagon was in July when he fought Max Holloway. The fight was for the UFC Featherweight Championship with Edgar losing via decision. It was a close fight but Frankie Edgar lacked the intensity and skill required to defeat Max Holloway. This is expected to be a challenging fight for Frankie Edgar since he is facing a strong opponent in a foreign country.
Looking at Chan Sung Jung, the South Korean fighter will have big hopes from this fight as it will be a good chance for a win on home soil. Chan Sung Jung enters this fight with a professional MMA record of 15-5-0. This will be the second time that Chan Sung Jung will be fighting in 2019 with the previous fight taking place in June. The last time that Chan Sung Jung entered the Octagon was against Renato Moicano. It was a dominant performance by Chan as he won in the opening round via TKO. The victory resulted in Chan Sung Jung winning the Performance of the Night award. Chan Sung Jung is an extremely exciting fighter and he has usually been involved in fights that have ended via submission or knockout.
This should be an interesting fight since Frankie Edgar and Chan Sung Jung are both extremely exciting athletes. As far as a prediction is concerned, I am going to pick Chan Sung Jung to win this match. Chan Sung Jung is coming off a victory while Frankie Edgar lost his previous match. Furthermore, Chan Sung Jung has the advantage of fighting on home soil. This should be a close contest but I see Chan Sung Jung being good enough to get the victory.
