This Sunday, the Super Bowl will take over the NRG Stadium in Houston Texas. One night before the big game, the UFC will touch down in Houston’s Toyota Center with UFC Fight Night 104.

This anticipated card will be headlined by a featherweight contender bout between Dennis Bermudez and Chan Sung Jung – who is more widely known by the nickname “The Korean Zombie.” The card’s co-main event, meanwhile, will see Mexican strawweight star Alexa Grasso take a big step up in competition against the veteran Felice Herrig. Other highlights of the card include appearances from names like James Vick, Abel Trujillo, Ovince St. Preux, Anthony Hamilton, Jessica Andrade, and Angela Hill.

Bermudez will enter his co-main event battle with the Korean Zombie on a two-fight win-streak, having recently defeated Tatsuya Kawajiri and Rony “Jason” Bezerra. Prior to this streak, he experienced back to back stoppage losses against Ricardo Lamas and Jeremy Stephens. The UFC’s ninth-ranked featherweight, Bermudez is 16-5 overall.

The Korean Zombie, meanwhile, owns a 13-4 overall record. He has not been seen in the Octagon since an August 2013 loss to Jose Aldo, as he has been sidelined by the two years of mandatory military service required of all South Korean men. Prior to his loss to Aldo, he was on a three-fight streak, having scored incredible stoppage wins over Leonard Garcia, Mark Hominick, and Dustin Poirier.

Grasso will enter her co-main event battle with Herrig with an undefeated record of 9-0. In her last bout, she made a successful UFC debut with a decision defeat of Heather Jo Clark. Herrig, on the other hand, is 11-6 in sum. In her last fight, she took out Hawaiian prospect Kailin Curran with a first-round rear-naked choke.
