 ‘UFC’s 3rd consecutive win challenge’ Kang Kyung-ho clashes with Castañeda… “Ranker callout after finish”

‘Mr. ‘Perfect’ Kang Kyung-ho (36) is on the hunt for his third consecutive UFC win.

Kang Kyung-ho will face ‘Sexy Mexi’ John Castañeda (31, USA) in the bantamweight (61.2kg) match at ‘UFC Fight Night: Allen vs Craig’ held at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on November 19th (Korean time). Fight against each other

I think this is the final test stage to enter the rankings. Kang Kyung-ho is on a good track with two consecutive wins. In particular, last March, he left a deep impression by finishing Christian Quiñones (27, Mexico) with a rear-naked choke in 2 minutes and 25 seconds in the first round. I believe that if I win impressively this time, I will have a chance to enter the rankings.

Kang Kyung-ho said, “If I win by finishing this time, I think I can call out a ranked player,” and added, “I would like to call out Chris Gutierrez (32, USA) or Ricky Simon (31, USA), who are near 15th place.” He continued, “The goal is always to be a champion, but now it’s better to focus on each game and that player and play a great game. “If that happens, I think he will be able to meet and fight good fighters,” he added.

Kang Kyung-ho, along with Park Jun-yong (32), is expected to be the Korean player closest to entering the rankings. With the retirement of ‘Korean Zombie’ Chan-Sung Jeong (36), there is no UFC ranker left in Korea. This is one of the reasons why Kang Kyung-ho, Korea’s oldest athlete who debuted in the UFC in 2013, has extraordinary determination.

This time’s opponent, Castañeda, is a Mexican-American fighter and a well-rounder with a wrestling background. He has a lot of experience with a career record of 20 wins and 6 losses (3 wins and 2 losses in UFC). Kang Kyung-ho evaluated his opponent as a sophisticated fighter who embodies the trend of modern mixed martial arts (MMA). He said, “I watched Castañeda play, and he is smart. “He is a fighter equipped with techniques such as level change and space movement that modern MMA players do,” he said.

But as the head of the family, I can never step down. Kang Kyung-ho is burning his desire to win while looking at his wife and son who just turned one. He said, “I feel like I’ve grown from a child to an adult now that I’m married and have a baby. Since my mindset is different now, I’ll work out a good strategy with the director and definitely finish again.”카지노

The weapon Kang Kyung-ho prepared this time is also a strike. He boasts powerful wrestling, ranked #1 in UFC bantamweight ground top position control, but is now considered an expert striking fighter. Danaa Batgerel (34, Mongolia) messed up her face with a jab, and Quiñones knocked her down with a front hand check hook counter punch.

Kang Kyung-ho said, “Because the match was focused on grappling, even if I won, it was a bit boring. So, I played a batting match, and it is definitely more fun for the people watching, fun for me, and less physically demanding,” he said, explaining the reason for switching to a batting match. He then revealed his strategy, saying, “I plan to overwhelm them with strikes first, then go to the ground and actively aim for serve missions.”

Lastly, Kang Kyung-ho said, “I will be competing in November, but I am really confident and am preparing hard. He sent a message to the fans, saying, “I will definitely show you a hot game like last time, so please watch the show.”

Kang Kyung-ho’s overall MMA record is 19 wins, 9 losses, and 1 void (UFC 8 wins, 2 losses, 1 void). He holds the record for the most wins (8) among active UFC Korean players.
