Brian Ortega vs. Korean Zombie: Bettors Siding With The Favorite
On Saturday night, Brian Ortega will take on Chan-Sung Jung, AKA The Korean Zombie, in the main even of UFC Fight Night at Flash Forum Arena.
Ortega and TKZ have never fought one another. Jung comes in boasting a 16-5 record after his TKO victory over Frankie Edgar in December. Meanwhile, Ortega is 14-1 in his professional MMA career, but is coming off a TKO defeat to Max Holloway.
Ortega is the No. 2 contender in the UFC featherweight division. The Korean Zombie holds the No. 4 spot in the weight class.
Despite Ortega’s higher ranking within the featherweight division, he comes in as a pretty sizeable underdog. As of Saturday afternoon, Ortega’s best odds sit at +175, giving him just a 36.4% shot at winning. At -198, Korean Zombie has a 66.4% chance. 68.42% of all bets are on TKZ to win outright. Ortega has been backed by 31.58% of wagers.
Whoever comes out on top on Saturday will likely reach the No. 1 contender spot and get a title shot against champion Alexander Volkanovski
