UFC Busan: Fight Card


In the next 24 hours, we get to witness only the second ever UFC card go down in South Korea. Originally, Chan Sung Jung was scheduled to fight Brian Ortega in the main event, and Frankie Edgar was expected to make his bantamweight debut against Cory Sandhagen in late January. However, Ortega was forced out of the bout with a knee injury, and was replaced by Edgar.
