Brian Ortega (14-1, 1 NC) last fought back in December 2018, when he went up against then champion Max Holloway, and suffered the first defeat in his career. Before that he knocked out Frankie Edgar in Round 1 and submitted Cub Swanson in the second.

Chan Sung Jung (16-5) is coming off two wins in a row. Battling it out in December and June 2019 he stopped Edgar and Renato Moicano in the first round, respectively.

Ortega and Korean Zombie were first booked for December 2019. The bout fell off when Ortega withdrew due to knee injury. Sung Jung fought and defeated Edgar.

An upcoming bout is expected to determine the next in line to challenge the current UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski.
