Preview – UFC Fight Night: Ortega vs. Jung

This very busy month for the UFC continutes tonight with another Fight Night on ESPN+. UFC Fight Night: Ortega vs. Jung will once again bring us back to UFC Fight Island in Abu Dhabi for another great night of fights, including a meeting of two great featherweight contenders. A future title shot could very well be on the line in tonight’s main event when two of the best in the UFC’s featherweight division step into the octagon. 

This bout is being advertised as a title eliminator, so the stakes here are clear. For Jung, that’s a step that makes sense, as “Korean Zombie” has leveled up in the last couple years. He’s hitting harder and scoring knockouts with a viciousness that is rather intimidating, to the point that fans were already arguing he receive a title shot. Ortega is in something of an opposite situation, having sat on the sidelines for nearly two years following his beating at the hands of Max Holloway. Somehow, this may also be a title eliminator for “T-City” as well, which would be quite the reversal of fortunes.
