In the main event of UFC Struggle Island 6, Brian Ortega was returning soon after practically two decades away to struggle Chan Sung Jung aka Korean Zombie.
UFC president, Dana White mentioned the winner would be getting the following title shot and it was Ortega obtaining the work accomplished. “T-City” dominated the combat from get started to finish and even dropped Zombie two times.
Now, subsequent the event, right here is what I think should really be up coming for Brian Ortega and Korean Zombie after UFC Struggle Island 6.
No a person realized what to anticipate from the returning Brian Ortega. He hadn’t fought since he was dominated by Max Holloway at UFC 231 again in December of 2018. Because then, he experienced a myriad of injuries and surgical procedures and even built a new staff all-around him.
Although many consider ring rust is real, Ortega proved that incorrect as he appeared phenomenal and it might have been the very best Ortega we have observed in the UFC. His striking and putting defense was phenomenal and now it seems he will be battling Alexander Volkanovski for the featherweight title future.
Ortega vs. Volkanovski is a wonderful stylistic matchup. On the ft, both adult males have tested their hanging is significantly superior. Volkanovski also likes to wrestle but taking down Ortega could current some difficulties. The struggle ought to materialize sometime in early 2021 and headline or co-headline a pay-per-view occasion.
Korean Zombie is now in limbo in the featherweight division. The UFC is doing the job on rebooking Zabit Magomedsharipov vs. Yair Rodriguez and a lot of imagine Max Holloway should really fight Calvin Kattar. So, relying on when he wants to return he will have to combat somebody decrease ranked.
One particular combat that tends to make a ton of perception and could headline a fight night card is Korean Zombie vs. Josh Emmett. Emmett is coming off a decision earn above Shane Burgos but he tore his knee and will be out for virtually a 12 months. So, if the struggle is to take place it won’t be equipped to just take area right until the April-June selection.
Yet, with the damage Zombie took, the timeframe does make perception and it would be an insane hanging matchup.
What do you imagine should really be following for Brian Ortega and Korean Zombie following UFC Fight Island 6?
