The two fighters will headline an action-packed UFC Fight Night 154 on June 22 in South Carolina. We preview that fight along with four others on the main card below.

When: Saturday, June 22, 2019
TV Broadcast: ESPN
Moicano (13-2-1) wants to give it another go for a UFC title, but before he gets a chance to clinch another ticket to a title fight, he’ll first have to go past the Korean Zombie in Jung. Moicano lost his most recent match, falling prey to Jose Aldo via second-round knockout back in February. Moicano isn’t known much for his striking power, as he has zero knockout victories, but he’s a huge thread whenever the fight gets on the ground. He has six wins by way of submissions with a loss in the same manner. Jung is an experienced fighter. He’s the underdog in this fight, but one can’t take his record lightly. He has four knockout victories, and appear to have the chops to at least match Moicano’s ground game. Out of 14 career wins, The Korean Zombie has eight submission wins.
The Korean Zombie wins via decision.
One look at Lineker’s record and you’d know why he’s been carrying around the same moniker of boxing Hall of Famer Roberto Durant. Known as “Hands of Stone”, Lineker has sent a number of opponents reeling to the ground. He owns a 31-9-0 record and out of those wins, 14 came via knockouts. He also seems to have jaws made out of stone, as he’s yet to be knocked out in his career. The 29-year-old Brazilian will look to add Font to his list of victims. Expect Lineker to come out swinging, especially after taking a split decision loss at the hands of Cory Sandhagen last April. Font may have the tools to fight Lineker standing up, fire for fire. Font is 16-4-0 with seven knockout wins. He has height and reach advantages over Lineker, too. Lineker stands just 5-3 with a 67-inch reach, while Font is 5-8 with a 71.5-inch reach.
Font wins via decision.
Barberena has a spotty 14-6-0 MMA record, but he’ll always give an exciting match, thanks to his style. Barberena doesn’t waste much time to coax fireworks inside the octagon. He has 10 wins by way of knockouts, while also getting knocked out just once. That lone knockout loss, however, occurred during his last fight, when he got a TKO loss in the third round against Vicente Luque back in February. Barberena has a tremendous work rate and incredible motor, landing 5.90 significant strikes per minute. He could find it harder to find gaps in Brown’s defense, though, presuming Brown (10-3-) will use his size advantage. Brown has a huge 5.5-inch advantage over Barberena, while also standing three inches taller. Brown is also coming off a loss, getting knocked out in the second round of his fight against Niko Price in July last year. He should come into UFC Fight Night 154 fresh due to that long layoff –
Barberena knocks out Brown.
Lee (10-2-0) is eyeing to climb higher in the women’s flyweight rankings, which is the same intention of De La Rosa. Lee is currently ranked 10th in the division and De La Rosa 11th. Lee is unbeaten in two fights through his UFC career. Lee is 5-0 in her last five fights, dating back to her Invicta FC days. She’s a potent fighter on the ground, as she has four submission wins to go with two knockout victories. De La Rosa is on a winning streak of her own, having won all of her last four fights — each by forcing her opponents to tap out. De La Rosa has a 10-4-0 record with eight submission wins.
De La Rosa submits Lee.
Holland(15-4-0) has a two-fight winning streak. In his most recent outing inside the Octagon, he scored a split decision victory over Gerald Meerschaert just last March. Prior to that, he rear-naked-choked John Phillips in November of last year. Holland will come into his fight with Di Chirico equipped with a significant seven-inch reach. Di Chirico (12-2-0) aims to make a bigger mark in the UFC almost a year after winning the Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale over Julian Marquez via split decision. This fight looks like it has a strong potential to win Fight of the Night honors, as both fighters combine for 12 knockout wins against zero knockout losses.
Holland wins via knockout.
