The UFC gets back to the Apex facility in Las Vegas for another UFC Fight Night card Saturday, June 19th live on ESPN+.
The main event brings in two featherweights looking to get a shot at Alexander Volkanovski’s title at 145 lbs. when No. 4 Chan Sung Jung, aka Korean Zombie, takes on No. 8 Dan Ige live on ESPN+.
Jung is 16-6 career, and despite being one of the most popular mixed martial artists anywhere thanks to his following abroad, he’s just 6-5 in a UFC octagon. He lost his last bout to Brian Ortega in unanimous decision last October.
Ige has continued to outperform expectations in the octagon, as “50K” is 15-3 in MMA and has won six of his last seven in the UFC. Both fighters are high-energy and with exciting knockout power, so this should be a good one. Right now Ige is a -125 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, making Zombie the +105 underdog.
The co-main event is at heavyweight, where legendary fighter and No. 15-ranked Aleksei Oleinik will take on Serghei Spivac. “The Boa Constrictor” Oleinik 59-15-1 at age 44, but has lost four of his last six in the octagon, and might be fighting for his contract here. However the 36-year-old Spivac is the favorite, with a 12-2 record and -240 odds compared to a +185 price for Oleinik.
