The UFC is back in Abu Dhabi tonight as we get ready for UFC Fight Night featuring Brian Ortega against Chan Sung Jung in the co-main event.  This fight is considered a contender fight for a future featherweight title bout against Alexander Volkanovski.

This will be the first fight back for Ortega, following the loss to Max Holloway. Meanwhile, the Zombie comes into this fight on a two-fight winning streak, with all of his fights ending by either submission or TKO.

In the other co-main event match we’ll see UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Jessica Andrade fighing Katlyn Chookagian.  If Chookagian can beat #6 ranked Andrade, that will be the biggest win of her UFC career.

We have an amazing Saturday ahead of us with UFC Fight Island tonight, tune in and catch all the action!
