Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will determine the next contender for the 145-pound title, currently held by reigning featherweight kingpin Alexander Volkanovski, when Brian Ortega collides with Chan Sung Jung in the UFC Fight Island 6 main event this Sat. night (Oct. 17, 2020) on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
Check out their pre-fight staredown embedded above.
Ortega (14-1, 1 NC) and Jung (16-5) were expected to collide at UFC Busan last December; however, “T-City” was felled by injury and forced to withdraw, paving the way for Frankie Edgar to step in on short notice in what proved to be “The Answer’s” final featherweight appearance.
This will be Ortega’s first fight in nearly two years.
