Full betting odds released for UFC on ESPN+ 38: Ortega vs. The Korean Zombie

By Adam Martin - October 14, 2020

The full betting odds have been released for the 11 fights scheduled to take place at Saturday’s UFC on ESPN+ 38: Ortega vs. Korean Zombie event.


The main event of UFC on ESPN+ 38 is a grudge match between former featherweight title challengers Brian Ortega and The Korean Zombie. These two do not like each other and the slapping incident at UFC 248 made this a grudge match. Ortega has not fought in nearly two years since suffering a TKO loss to Max Holloway at UFC 231, while The Korean Zombie is coming off of spectacular knockouts of Frankie Edgar and Renato Moicano.

In the co-main event, former UFC women’s strawweight champion Jessica Andrade makes her flyweight debut when she takes on top contender Katlyn Chookagian. Andrade is coming off of back-to-back losses to Rose Namajunas and Weili Zhang, while Chookagian is coming off of a dominant win over Antonina Shevchenko in her last outing.
