UFC Fight Night: Ortega vs Korean Zombie – Tips & Preview

Brian Ortega vs Chan Sung Jung, Featherweight, Main Event
Sung Jung $1.52

The Korean Zombie Chan Sung Jung opens as a $1.52 favourite here, with Brian Ortega the $2.55 outsider.

Sung Jung enters this bout with a 16-5 career record, having gone 6-2 since entering the UFC in 2011.

He is known for his exciting style and great finishing ability, recording 6 knockouts and 8 submissions so far.

He has been in some very strong recent form, knocking out both Moicano and Edgar in his last two fights.

His opponent, Brian Ortega, enters this bout with a stellar 14-1-1 record.

He is another fighter known for his strong finishing ability, managing 3 knockouts and 7 submission wins.

He actually earned a Featherweight title shot last time out, but suffered the first loss of his career against Max Holloway.

It’s tough to know what type of shape Ortega is in at the moment, so I’ll take Sung Jung in this one.

I think he’s an extremely well-rounded fighter and he should be able to give Ortega trouble here.

All three win methods are firmly in play, so I’ll just stick with the straight-up win market here.

Ciryl Gane vs Ante Delija, Heavyweight, Co-Main
Gane by KO/Submission

Ciryl Gane enters this bout as the convincing $1.16 favourite, with Ante Delija way out at $5.25.

Gane has had a very impressive career to date, going 7-0 as a kickboxer and 6-0 since taking up MMA.

He is known primarily for his excellent knockout ability, although he does also have 3 submissions as a pro MMA fighter.

Quality of opponent could be looked at as an issue, as this is definitely his highest-profile fight.

His opponent, Ante Delija, hasn’t even been blessed with the dignity of a Wikipedia page.

He does possess an impressive 17-3 career record, with 6 knockouts and 7 submissions to his name already.

His recent form has also been quite impressive, earning 8 wins in his last 9 fights.

That said, he looks to be at a real physical disadvantage against Gane and could struggle here.

I think Gane has the edge both on the feet and on the ground here and should win by either KO or submission.

His unique mix of speed and power will likely ultimately prove the difference here.
