UFC Busan Highlights: Chan Sung Jung Smashes Frankie Edgar

Chan Sung Jung scored the biggest win thus far in his MMA career when he beat Frankie Edgar at UFC Busan. 

The two fighters met in a featherweight bout at the UFC Busan event on Saturday morning (December 21, 2019) from the Sajik Arena in Busan, South Korea that aired on ESPN’s streaming service, ESPN+. 

Right out of the gate in the first round, Jung stunned him before dropping him. Jung peppered him with strikes while having him flattened out. Once Edgar got back to his feet, Jung landed a flurry of strikes and dropped him again until the fight was called off.
