A pair of highly ranked featherweights are ready to collide and make their case for why they should be in the mix for a title fight in the near future. No. 4-ranked Korean Zombie takes on No. 8-ranked Dan Ige in this week’s main event of UFC Fight Night: Zombie vs Ige.
UFC Fight Night: Zombie vs Ige takes place at the UFC Apex Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Looking at the main event, Korean Zombie vs Ige odds are set with Ige listed as the slight betting favorite.
Zombie looks to bounce back after having his two-fight winning streak snapped in his last outing by Brian Ortega, the man who is fighting for the belt next. A loss here will really hurt Chan Sung Jung’s chances of getting another title shot.
A similar story can be written about Dan Ige, who had a close decision loss to Calvin Kattar. He was only one fight away from getting a title fight, but rebounded with a one-punch knockout in his last outing in March.
