Aldo vs. KZ Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

UFC Fight Night: Bermudez vs. Korean Zombie is set to take place tomorrow night from Houston, Texas as the main event will see the return of “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung (+170) following his mandatory 2-year military service in South Korea. Jung will be squaring off with the #9 ranked Dennis Bermudez (-200) who had a successful 2-0 run in 2016.

The largest favorite on the card comes by way of Jessica Andrade, who sports a big ol’ fat line of around -550. The counterpoint to Andrade’s staggering line belongs to Angela Hill and her card-leading dog line of around +425. Andrade vs. Hill has also seen the most action out of any match of the night, in terms of line movement, as Andrade opened up at around -235 with Hill at around +185.

Heavyweight bout Adam Milstead vs. Curtis Blaydes has also seen a bit of play as Blaydes has moved from around -179 to around -300, with Milstead shifting from near +150 up to about +255.

Dennis Bermudez vs. Chan Sung Jung: Featherweight

From the IV ban to the new unified rules , the landscape of modern MMA looks dramatically different since “The Korean Zombie’s” last fight, a fourth round TKO loss to Jose Aldo back at UFC 163 in 2013. Yes, Bermudez has been submitted 4 times. Yes, Jung has been a gangster on the ground, evident by his rare Twister sub of Leonard Garcia and his technical sub of Dustin Poirier by way of D’arce. So yes, Chan Sung Jung by Submission @ +450 is enticing. The fact remains, outside of a chance bet, it’s tough to recommend dropping any serious coin on someone that is returning from a 3.5-year layoff. With that being said, NO ACTION is the safe play here.

Rest of card:

With 2 heavyweight tilts outside of the top 15, a couple pick ‘em bouts, several untrustworthy favorites facing underdogs with lackluster lines, and a a 3.5 year layoff to boot... NO ACTION is your best bet.
