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.
