UFC Fight Night Betting Preview: Hyun Sung Park vs. Shannon Ross

December 9, 2023

Witness an electrifying flyweight clash in the upcoming prelims at UFC Fight Night 233 on Saturday, December 9 in Las Vegas, featuring Hyun Sung Park against Shannon Ross. Park stands as a substantial moneyline favorite, boasting odds at -550 according to the current market.

Hyun Sung Park Betting Preview

Park has yet to be defeated in eight bouts so far on his resume. His previous encounter was a third round rear-naked choke submission over Seung Guk Choi in February of this year at UFC Fight Night 218.

Out of his eight wins, three have come by knockout, four by submission, and one by decision. Half of his wins have ended in the first round, making him a coin flip each fight that could result in a first round finish.

He has landed strikes with a success rate of 49 percent, but also lands some takedowns about 30 percent of the time. His significant strike ratio comes in at 3.51 significant strikes landed and 2.62 absorbed, making this a favorable ratio to compete with.

Park, so far, has great defenses. He has defended against 60 percent of significant strikes and 100 percent against takedowns. He also averages 2.23 takedowns and 3.71 submissions per 15 minutes of fighting time.

Shannon Ross Betting Preview

Ross was given the opportunity to fight in the UFC despite losing in his debut in the Dana White Contender Series. Including that fight, he has now lost three straight. His recent defeat was a first round, 17-second, knockout against Jesus Santos Aguilar back at UFC 290 in July earlier this year.

His 12 wins are composed of six knockouts, a submission, and five decisions. He has turned three of these into first round finishes. In his eight losses, half have come by knockout.

His striking accuracy comes in at 38 percent, but has yet to land a takedown in the UFC. His significant strike ratio is concerning, as he lands 6.58 and takes on 8.93 significant strikes each minute of action. This is an aggressive rate, which does not bode well for his chances to win.

Ross has defended against significant strikes at 53 percent and 100 percent against takedowns. Due to his losses, he only lasted about three minutes of fight time.
