Frankie Edgar’s return to the UFC Octagon will be a main event occasion for the New Jersey native, last seen outpointing Cub Swanson back in April of this year. Edgar Vs Korean Zombie (Chan Sung Jung) is a big fight in the 145lb featherweight division and the Edgar Vs Korean Zombie betting odds suggest we could be in for a real 5 round war of attrition here.
Future ‘Hall of Famer’ Frankie Edgar is the -250 favourite at Betway Sportsbook, with the UFC betting lines having Korean Zombie as the +175 underdog with the same oddsmakers.
Plagued by injury and long absence from the sport, Korean Zombie hasn’t fought since February 2017, where he destroyed Dennis Bermudez with a devastating KO punch. But our Edgar Vs Korean Zombie betting preview is here to find the most likely outcome and Frankie is a master at circling away from an opponent’s power hand, finding his way inside and imposing his world-class wrestling game. This will probably be what happens.
This main event is a really interesting matchup – Frankie Edgar feels he certainly has another title shot within him and a statement win here to back up his win over Swanson, would put him right in line for a mouth-watering clash with 145lb Champion Max Holloway or No. 1 contender Brian Ortega, depending on who wins that fight when they eventually clash. In the meantime, the main Edgar Vs Korean Zombie pick has to be a dominating success for Frankie Edgar.
