UFC Vegas 29 poster drops for ‘Korean Zombie vs Ige’ on June 19

New, comments

Longtime featherweight contender Chan Sung Jung, affectionately known as “The Korean Zombie,” will look to keep his place in the featherweight Top 5 when he collides with No. 8-ranked Dan Ige in the UFC Vegas 29 main event, scheduled for Sat., June 19, 2021 inside APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Now they have an official poster.

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.

UFC Vegas 29 will also feature the welterweight bang-o-rama between Matt Brown and Dhiego Lima. Elsewhere on the card, Aleksei Oleinik and Serghei Spivac hook ‘em up in heavyweight action, while Davey Grant and Marlon Vera collide at 135 pounds.
