The UFC returns to South Korea for the first time since 2015 this week, with a card that’s probably best off airing in the middle of the night. The main event, between Frankie Edgar and Chan Sung Jung, is an excellent bout, but it feels like it would have been perfect 2-3 years ago. The co-main, between Volkan Oezdemir and Aleksandar Rakic promises to be an action fight. But, after that, things quickly venture into much less recognizable territory.
