Brian Ortega defeated the “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung in a five-round unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night on Saturday night at the Flash Forum in Abu Dhabi.

All three judges scored the featherweight main event the same, 50-45. Ortega improves to 15-1, earning him a shot at featherweight champion Alex Volkanovski.

“We’re gonna find out if I’m ready,” Ortega said. “In this game, you take chances. You don’t grow in the comfort zone. Alex Volkanovski, you’re the champ. The thought of fighting you is exciting.”

It was Ortega’s first fight since 2018, when he was defeated by Max Holloway in a title fight at UFC 231.

Ortega dropped Jung in the opening round and again in the second, and opened up a cut over Jung’s left eye in the fourth.

Jessica Andrade defeated Katlyn Chookagian by TKO in the first round of their women’s flyweight bout. It was Andrade’s first bout since moving up from strawweight division, and she made it look easy in improving to 21-8 (12-6 UFC).
