Brian Ortega vs. ‘The Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung headlines UFC’s return to South Korea

Rumors have been swirling for some time that Ortega and Jung were on a collision course, but the fight was never made official.

Now the pair of former featherweight title contenders will clash at the upcoming card from South Korea as Ortega looks to bounce back from his last loss while Jung attempts to build on a win in his last outing.

After an undefeated run through the first 15 fights of his career, Ortega tasted defeat for the first time when he fell to reigning featherweight champion Max Holloway in his last outing in July 2018. Ortega hasn’t competed since then so by the time he sets foot back in the Octagon in December it will have been around 17 months between fights.
