Fight Island? What in the world is that?

Actually it is not a remote spot like Dana White wants you to believe. It is Yas Island on Abu Dhabi. It is rather populated and will be the home of several fights during the pandemic.

Ortega returns for the first time since he injured his knee in a loss to Max Halloway nearly two years ago. The Korean Zombie comes in with a 16-5 record and three first round wins but missed time in the ring due to mandatory military service.

Fight Island Odds

– Brian Ortega (+152)
– Chan Sung Jung (-188)
Method of Victory:
– Ortega by KO/TKO (+850)
– Ortega by Points (+750)
– Ortega by Submission (+320)
– Jung by KO/TKO (+125)
– Jung by Points (+380)
– Jung by Submission (+1400)

This is a tough call as Ortega has been away 22 months and the Korean Zombie for 10 months. I am going with the least amount of rust in a submission.

Take The Korean Zombie.
