Da Un Jung’s pressure and accuracy were too much for Kennedy Nzechukwu to handle at UFC Fight Night 197.

Jung (15-2-1 MMA, 4-0-1 UFC) remained unbeaten in his octagon career Saturday when he stopped Nzechukwu (9-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) with strikes at the 3:01 mark of Round 1 in the light heavyweight matchup, which took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

The beginning of the end started with a punch that backed Nzechukwu up. Jung swarmed him with elbows, then landed a final blow that put his opponent down and out.

The South Korean prospect said he’s gaining confidence in the aftermath of another win, and he’s prepared for a step up in competition at 205 pounds.

“Come on, everybody,” Jung said in his post-fight interview with Michael Bisping.
