By Tristen Critchfield Apr 3, 2021


Chan Sung Jung will lock horns with Dan Ige in a featherweight main event at UFC Fight Night on June 19.

ESPN first brought word of the matchup. The event does not yet have an official location or venue.

“The Korean Zombie” had a two-bout winning streak snapped at UFC Fight Night 180, when he dropped a five-round verdict to current No. 1 contender Brian Ortega this past October. Prior to that, Jung had earned consecutive first-round TKO wins against Frankie Edgar and Renato Carneiro.

Ige, meanwhile, is coming off a 22-second knockout of Gavin Tucker at UFC Fight Night 187 on March 13. The Xtreme Couture product has won seven of his last eight Octagon appearances, with a five-round decision loss to Calvin Kattar on July 15 as the only setback on his record during that run.
