Brian Ortega vs. Chan Sung Jung brought bad blood into their fight.

As seen in the fight, the first round was highlighted with Ortega briefly dropping him with a left hook. Things got exciting in the second round as Ortega connected with a spinning back elbow that dropped Jung, who recovered the onslaught. Moving along to the fourth round, Ortega not only sliced him with a cut on his left eyelid but also scored a takedown. 

This fight showed that Ortega didn’t have to worry about ring rust. This was a brilliant performance by the title contender. Ortega got the decision win. 

This was an important contest for both guys. The duo was previously scheduled to main event a Fight Night Event in December 2019.
