The UFC is sticking around Fight Island for another couple of events, and this weekend’s show will feature a headliner that took forever to finally put together - but it is so worth the wait.
After many stops and starts, and one guy slapping the other guy’s friend, we’ll finally get what should end up being a fight of the year candidate. Former title challengers Brian Ortega and Chan Sung Jung, who you probably know better as the Korean Zombie, will face off to see who fights current champion Alexander Volkanovski next.
The rest of the card is a bit thin, with the co-main coming at heavyweight as Ciryl Gane will face off with Ante Delija. But Katlyn Chookagian vs. Jessica Andrade is a great fight, and Thomas Almeida is always worth the (relative) price of admission.
