Frankie Edgar vs “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung Headlining UFC Fight Night Denver
Chan Sung Jung (14-4) and Frankie Edgar (23-6) will face off at the UFC’s 25th anniversary Fight Night card in Denver as confirmed by Dana White in an interview with Brett Okamoto.
The No. 3 ranked Edgar is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Cub Swanson at Fight Night 128 and looks to bolster his ranking with another win, that could potentially set up an eventual title shot or rematch with Brian Ortega.
Currently ranked number 9 in the featherweight division, “The Korean Zombie” ended his last fight with an impressive first-round knockout victory over Dennis Bermudez. It is worth noting, however, that this will be Jung’s first time back in the octagon in over a year after suffering a pretty brutal knee injury, whereas, Edgar has been much more active, already fighting twice in 2018. It will be interesting to see if Jung’s inactivity or injury is a hindrance against a dangerous opponent in Frankie Edgar.
