Ahead of the fight, reached out to several pro fighters to get their prediction for the scrap. The majority believe Korean Zombie will eventually land the knockout punch as the pros are worried about ring rust on Ortega’s side. Fighter Picks Brian Ortega vs. Korean Zombie:

Marlon Moraes, UFC bantamweight: I think Ortega will get it done.

Hunter Azure, UFC bantamweight: I think Korean Zombie. Ortega is coming off that layoff, and Zombie has been looking great in his last few fights.

Casey Kenney, UFC bantamweight: Korean Zombie. They will get into a slugfest and Zombie knocks him out.

Kyler Philipps, UFC bantamweight: Korean Zombie has got some power. I’ve sparred with him before and he hits hard. It is hard to say because Zombie has good jiu-jitsu but Ortega is high-level. I think Zombie will keep it standing and win the fight.

Yorgan De Castro, UFC heavyweight: Tough fight. I think Ortega as I actually like the time off for him.

Tim Johnson, Bellator heavyweight: Korean Zombie has looked good as of late and will get it done.

Giga Chikadze, UFC featherweight: That is a good fight. I’m interested to see how Ortega looks like after two years away. Brian might catch him on the ground with a submission. However, I think Zombie will land the KO punch.

Gillian Robertson, UFC flyweight: I feel like it is a tough one to pick. Korean Zombie has looked good as of late, and we haven’t seen Ortega since the Holloway loss. I do believe Ortega has what it takes and will get the job done.

Tyson Nam, UFC flyweight: I think Korean Zombie will knock Ortega out.

Youssef Zalal, UFC featherweight: I think Korean Zombie is about to shock some people and get a first-round KO over Ortega.
