PIVOTAL FLYWEIGHT FRACAS! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Arena CDMX in Mexico City, Mexico, on Feb. 24, 2024, with a pivotal Flyweight fracas between former 125-pound kingpin, Brandon Moreno, and most recent title challenger, Brandon Royval, who replaces the red-hot (and injured) Iraqi “Prince,” Amir Albazi. In UFC Mexico City’s ESPN+-streamed co-main event, top-ranked Featherweight contenders, Yair Rodriguez (No. 3) and Brian Ortega (No. 4), will run it back after their initial encounter ended prematurely via gross injury.

Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Jung (16-6), who turned 34 back in March, watched his two-fight win streak go up in smoke at the hands of Brian Ortega, who buried “The Korean Zombie” back in Oct. 2020, stealing a title shot — as well as a TUF 29 coaching gig — along the way.

As for the 29 year-old Ige (15-3), he rebounded from a disappointing loss to Calvin Kattar at UFC on ESPN 13 by smashing Gavin Tucker back in March. “Dynamite” is 7-1 over the last three years and now has a chance to jump into title contention with a victory over Jung.
