Brian ‘T-City’ Ortega is back with a bang, and back in title contention. Earning his second crack at UFC featherweight gold, the Californian displayed a creative striking showcase with a five-round, dominant victory over fellow one-time title challenger, ‘The Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung.

The renowned grappler displayed a fantastically adept overall striking game to pick the South Korean power-puncher apart for the opening-round, before scoring a knockdown via a counter left hook.

Finding his range briefly in the second frame, Zombie managed to setup a well-placed counter right hook midway through the frame, before Ortega found his second knockdown of the fight with a beautifully timed spinning elbow. Finishing the round from top-position, Ortega managed a late takedown at the fence.

Stuffing a takedown attempt in the third, Zombie was once again picked apart in the third with more sharp boxing and lateral movement who rolled with the counter attempts of Jung and showed a real maturity in his defensive ability.

In the first of our two championship rounds, a clash of heads as Ortega pressed for a takedown resulted in a cut on the left eyelid of Zombie, with the Octagon side physician checking the cut before allowing Jung to continue.

With more of the same in the fifth and final frame, Ortega rounded out his dominant 50-45 x3 victory with some more leading pressure and boxing.

Below, check out the highlights of Ortega’s title earning victory over Zombie.

LowKick MMA will be bringing you UFC Fight Island 6: Ortega vs. The Korean Zombie Results throughout the night (Sat. 17th. October 2020) from the Flash Forum on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

One-time UFC featherweight title challengers, Brain ‘T-City’ Ortega, and ‘The Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung look to finally settle their differences, and subsequently earn a crack at Alexander ‘The Great’ Volkanovski’s throne.

Originally scheduled to headline UFC Fight Night Busan in December of last year – Ortega was forced to withdraw after he suffered a knee injury. In his place stepped former lightweight champion, Frankie ‘The Answer’ Edgar – with Jung scoring a quickfire opening-round knockout win.

Limited to just one Octagon appearance since UFC 231 in December of 2018 – Ortega dropped his first professional defeat in a one-sided fourth-round doctor’s stoppage defeat to former featherweight kingpin, Max ‘Blessed’ Holloway.

In a reworked co-main event, one-time flyweight title challenger, Katlyn ‘Blonde Fighter’ Chookagian welcomes former strawweight titleholder, Jéssica ‘Bate Estaca’ Andrade to the 125-pounds ranks in a high-stakes pairing.

Returning to winning ways at UFC Vegas in September, Chookagian managed a one-sided unanimous decision win over Antonina ‘La Pantera’ Shevchenko – following a title challenger loss to her younger sister, Valentina ‘Bullet’ Shevchenko.

Testing the flyweight ranks for the first time in her promotional stint, Brazilian powerhouse, Andrade has dropped two on the trot; a strawweight title defence defeat to Zhang Weili, and a rematch loss to fellow former champion, Rose Namajunas at UFC 251 also on ‘Fight Island’ in July.
