The octagon will return to Denver’s Pepsi Center on November 10 for the promotions 25th anniversary show UFC Fight Night 139.
The historic event is headlined by a key featherweight bout featuring former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar taking on “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung.
Frankie Edgar is currently riding the momentum of a second, dominant defeat of Cub Swanson. Prior to that, “The Answer” was coming off his first career knockout loss to Brian Ortega at UFC 222. Frankie Edgar holds notable wins over Yair Rodriguez, Jeremy Stephens, Sean Sherk, BJ Penn, Gray Maynard, Urijah Faber and Chad Mendes during his UFC career. The former UFC lightweight champion will enter his bout with “KZ” sporting an overall record of 23-6-1.
Meanwhile, “The Korean Zombie” has not stepped foot inside the octagon since February of 2017, when he returned from a multi-year hiatus and knocked out Dennis Bermudez. Jung’s next most recent contest occurred in August of 2014, when he came up short in a title fight with then champion Jose Aldo. The fan favorite, Chan Sung Jung, currently holds an overall record of 14-4.
In the co-main event of the evening, dangerous welterweight fighters Donald Cerrone and Mike Perry will collide in hopes of moving up the 170-pound ranks.
Donald Cerrone (33-11 MMA) was last seen in action at June’s UFC Fight Night event in Singapore, where he suffered a unanimous decision loss to surging welterweight contender Leon Edwards. Prior to the setback, “Cowboy” was coming off a spectacular first-round finish of Hawaiian Yancy Medeiros.
As for “Platinum”, Mike Perry was most recently seen in action at July’s UFC 226 event, where he earned a split-decision victory over Paul Felder.
