UFC on ESPN+ 23: Brian Ortega vs. Korean Zombie confirmed for South Korea

The UFC confirmed today that featherweights No. 2 Brian “T-City” Ortega (14-1-0, 1NC) and No. 6 “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung (15-5-0) will clash at South Korea’s UFC on ESPN+ 23 card in December.

Ortega, 28, will try and shake off his first professional loss in Busan, on the “Korean Zombie’s” home turf. He has been healing and adjusting his training since the fight with Max Holloway at UFC 231 in December 2016.

Meanwhile, Jung, 32, is coming off a convincing bounce-back win over Renato Carneiro at UFC on ESPN+ 12 in June. A win over “T-City” would like catapult him into the title shot conversation where he once was, back in 2013.

UFC on ESPN+ 23 is scheduled for Dec. 21 at the Sajik Arena in Busan, South Korea. Current bouts include:

Alexandre Pantoja (21-4-0) vs. Matt Schnell (14-4-0)

Volkan Oezdemir (16-4-0) vs. Aleksandar Rakic (12-1-0)

More bouts are expected to be announced.
