The title picture of the featherweight division is on hold at the moment with Alexander Volkanovski involved with TUF. Not to mention, the top contender in Brian Ortega is on the sidelines as well, waiting to fight for the belt. This has given the division a sense of pause and the contenders are scrambling to make a run to the top.

UFC Vegas 29: Julian Erosa vs Choi Seung-Woo

‘Juicy J’ is on a three-fight win streak and is fresh off a flying knee TKO win over Nate Landwehr from back in February. Since 2020, Erosa has turned the corner, going undefeated with three spectacular finishes in a row. He’ll want to add on to his catalog of high-flying finishes with a stoppage win over Seung-Woo.

Julian Erosa is a walking-talking, finishing machine with 22/25 wins coming by the way of stoppage. From TKOs to submissions, he’s got it all in his wide array of weapons. He relies heavily on explosive movements and looks to catch his opponents moving backward. Not to mention, he’s as durable as they come on the ground as he’s never been submitted.

Choi Seung-Woo is on a two-fight win streak and is coming off an uber-impressive UD win over Youssef Zalal. ‘Sting’ comes into the contest with a major disadvantage in the experience department as compared to his opponent. However, despite the gap in experience, the Korean stand-up specialist believes his dynamism is enough to win out the day.

Seung-Woo will want to avoid going to the ground with Erosa as he’s nowhere nearly as seasoned. However, if he manages to stay on his feet, ‘Sting’ will back himself to land the finishing blow. Julian Erosa’s chin has been tested occasionally, and he’s suffered some devastating KO/TKO losses. We don’t see him suffering another one at the UFC APEX.
