‘Mr. Perfect’ Kang Kyung-ho (36, Tim Mad), who became a father, returns to the UFC Octagon after a year.
The UFC said, “Kang Kyung-ho will face Christian Quinones (27, Mexico) in the bantamweight division at the ‘UFC Fight Night: Vettori vs. Cannoneer’ held at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on June 18 (Sunday).” It was officially announced on the 16th.
Unexpectedly, the hiatus was prolonged. After defeating Dana Batgarel (33, Mongolia) by unanimous decision at UFC 275 held in Singapore last June, he took a break for 11 months. Opponent players rejected the offer, so it was difficult to catch the game.
Nicknamed ‘Mr. Perfect’, Kang Kyung-ho, who boasts solid skills in all aspects of hitting and ground, was a burdensome opponent for many bantamweight players.
The fighter who finally accepted the fight against Kang Kyung-ho is the newcomer Mexican Quinones. He is from Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS) and has one win in the UFC. His career record is 18 wins and 3 losses. 10 out of 18 wins were by knockout (TKO). He is a boxer type fighter with strong punching power.
Although the UFC fighters are the most reluctant unknown strongman, Kang Kyung-ho accepted the offer without hesitation. It’s because he’s been thirsty for a fight over the past year.
Kang Kyung-ho said, “I was just happy to be able to play because I thought I wanted to play soon.” “Quignones is basically an all-rounder. He is similar to me in that he uses his long height to strike and actively wrestles,” he said, expressing his expectation, “I think it will be a fun match.”체스카지노
The weapon Kang Kyung-ho prepared this time is a blow. While taking a break from wrestling training, which is his main skill due to a back injury, the blows he honed became his main weapon before he knew it. In the last fight against Bart Garal, the face of the opponent who was hit by the jab throughout the game was a mess.
This comeback is Kang’s first UFC fight as his father. He had a son in September of last year and became his father.
Kang Kyung-ho, who spent his hiatus while raising children, said, “Because I became a father, I felt more responsible. I will definitely win.”
Kang Kyung-ho’s career in mixed martial arts (MMA) is 18 wins, 9 losses and 1 null (UFC, 7 wins, 3 losses, 1 null).
The main event of the day is the confrontation between Marvin Vettori (29, Italy), 3rd in the middleweight ranking, and Jared Cannoneer (39, USA), 4th. Both players are trying to prove their qualifications to challenge champion Israel Adesanya (33, New Zealand) once again by winning this confrontation.
