The UFC Fight Island stint is coming to an end, with just a couple of fight cards left until it heads back to Vegas, for now.
Headlining the most recent event was a highly anticipated grudge match between Brian Ortega and ‘The Korean Zombie’. The two have been waiting to fight each other for around a year, after Ortega previously pulled out with an injury. TKZ’s translator suggested that Ortega’s injury was a result of him ducking TKZ, which led to Ortega slapping him at UFC 248, and causing a lot of drama.
Also on the card was a WMMA top contender bout, and a whole host of up and coming talent.
