A really fantastic Fight Night offering from the UFC this week. The main event between Brian Ortega and the ‘Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung is a guaranteed elite action fight. And it’s backed up by the flyweight debut of Jessica Andrade, against former title challenger Katlyn Chookagian. Throw Claudio Silva vs. James Kruase and some Thomas Almeida violence in there and it should be a blast.

For anyone looking to dive deeper into the undercard (including the UFC debut of former KSW champ Mateusz Gamrot) check out the Prelims Vivi below.
