With Frankie Edgar injured, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will bring fight fans a new headlining act for the UFC Fight Night 139 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, held inside Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, TONIGHT (Sat., Nov. 10, 2018) on FOX Sports 1.
Chan Sung Jung vs. Yair Rodriguez.
Jung (14-4) will try to win his second fight in a row since returning from his mandatory military service in South Korea. The former UFC featherweight title challenger stills look to be the same fighter he was back in 2012, which is really exciting from a spectator’s standpoint. Another flashy knockout finish for “Korean Zombie” this weekend could score the veteran his second UFC title shot.
Rodriguez (10-2) has only lost to Edgar in UFC competition. The talented featherweight striker hasn’t fought since his bout with “The Answer” well over a year ago so he’s going to be looking to impress in his return. A victory over a well-known brawler like “Korean Zombie” will put “Pantera” right back where he was before his loss to the ex-champion.
