‘The Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung and Dan Ige are both trying to fight their way back into championship contention and will each have the chance to pick up an impressive win when they go head-to-head this Saturday night in the UFC Vegas 29 main event. BettingPlanet brings you the latest odds, fight predictions and best bets for the Jung vs Ige bout.

Korean Zombie vs Dan Ige UFC fight preview

Chan Sung Jung (16-6-0) was red-hot coming into 2020 after picking up two first-round knockout wins over Renato Moicano and Frankie Edgar in 2019. Jung faced Brian Ortega in October with a UFC Featherweight Championship bout against Alex Volkanovski on the line and fell short in a decision loss. The Korean Zombie fell to 6-3 in his UFC career with that defeat, so he will now have to string some wins together to get back into the championship conversation.

Dan Ige (15-3) strung six wins in a row together after losing his UFC debut, including a decision win over Edson Barboza in May of 2020. Ige’s rise in the featherweight division hit a speed bump in a decision loss to Calvin Kattar last July, but he bounced back in thrilling fashion in March when he knocked out Gavin Tucker in just 22 seconds. Tucker was 13-1 going into that fight.

Korean Zombie vs Dan Ige predictions & best bets

Any time you see a main event going off as a pick’em in the UFC, you know you are in for a treat. This fight will be no exception. Both of these fighters are always moving forward and aren’t afraid to trust their chins. Both are outstanding strikers. Chan Sung Jung has six knockout wins and eight submission wins in his career, while Dan Ige has four knockout wins and five submission wins. This fight could go any which way.

Each of Jung’s last three wins have come by knockout, and each of his last nine wins have come by stoppage (five knockouts, four submissions). Jung is at his best when he is counter-striking, and he is more than capable of ending any fight he enters the octagon in swiftly. The issue in this bout is that Ige has a rock-solid chin; he has never been knocked out or submitted. Ige also has good reach with his leg kicks that could help keep Jung from stalking him comfortably.

As indicated by the odds at UFC betting sites, this fight could easily go either way. Jung is the more dangerous fighter, but Ige is a bit more polished. We think Ige chips away over five rounds and eventually earns a decision win in Saturday’s main event.
