The UFC is taking the Octagon over to Asia for an event in South Korea, and the show has a relatively new main event. The card was built around a fight between former featherweight title challengers Chan Sung Jung (aka The Korean Zombie) and Brian Ortega. Unfortunately Ortega suffered a serious knee injury while training for the bout, so he has been replaced by former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar.

In addition to that, UFC Busan will feature a battle between light heavyweight contenders in Volkan Oezdemir and Aleksandar Rakic, and the return of the Korean Superboy, Doo Ho Choi.
