Brian Ortega vs. Chan Sung Jung took place in a featherweight bout at the UFC On ESPN+ 38 event on Saturday night in Flash Forum on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi aka Fight Island.
Ortega looked great in this fight as his striking was so much more advanced, quicker, and more accurate. Jung was tough and stayed in this fight, but it seemed to be more of a showcase for Ortega despite the long layoff. Ortega did knock Jung down in round one and nearly finished it in the second round with a spinning back elbow strike. Ortega took the decision win.
Ortega had not competed inside the Octagon since December of 2018 when he lost to then-featherweight champion Max Holloway. On the flip side, Jung had won three of his last four fights, the latter two coming by way of first round knockout.
