UFC Houston: Bermudez vs. Jung – Main Card Staff Picks

On the night before America’s biggest sporting event, the UFC will take the stage in Houston, and Cage Pages has their winners picked.

UFC Houston marks the long-awaited return of “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung, who takes on top-10 featherweight Dennis Bermudez in the main event. Jung has not competed in over three years due to mandatory military service in his native South Korea.

UFC Denver was another successful event for the Cage Pages staff, with three writers going undefeated for the night. Following the flawless ones were seven writers at 3-1. Splitting the card even at 2-2 were five writers. Lastly, two writers came in under .500 with a 1-3 night.

It’s the first six-fight main card of the year tonight, and here are the fights we are predicting:

  • Dennis Bermudez vs. Chan Sung Jung
  • #9 Alexa Grasso vs. Felice Herrig
  • James Vick vs. Abel Trujillo
  • #7 Ovince St. Preux vs. Volkan Oezdemir
  • Anthony Hamilton vs. Marcel Fortuna

The closest picks on the card can be seen in the intriguing lightweight bout between James Vick and Abel Trujillo, with James Vick taking home 12 of the 19 available picks. On the opposite end, not one writer sided with Felice Herrig in the co-main event. We’re all itching for the rise of The Korean Zombie, with Chan Sung Jung receiving 15 of the picks to Bermudez’s four. The remaining two matches are fairly clear cut, with OSP getting all but one pick, and Anthony Hamilton receiving 17 of the 19 picks.
