This Is How The MMA World Reacted To UFC Fight Island 6
UFC Fight Island 6 went down this weekend on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. After almost two years away from the Octagon, two surgeries and a change of team, Brian Ortega looked incredible for five rounds, beating ‘The Korean Zombie’ (Chan Sung Jung) via unanimous decision in the main event. ‘T-City’ will now challenge Alex Volkanovski for the UFC featherweight title.
In the co-main event, Jessica Andrade made an instant impact in the flyweight division by finishing the division’s number one contender, Katlyn Chookagian, with two seconds left of the very first round. In doing so, the Brazilian becomes the first ever women to win in three different weight classes.
Elsewhere on the UFC Fight Island 6 card, Jimmy Crute only needed two minutes to knockout Modestas Bukauskas, James Krause overcame injuring his knee to beat Claudio Silva via unanimous decision, and Jonathan Martinez put on arguably the best performance of his career, beating Thomas Almeida via unanimous decision.
