Brian Ortega defeated this Saturday night Chan sung jung, recognized as “The Korean Zombie”. They both fought in Abu Dhabi, in the UFC Fight island 6. The two were face to face, leaving a more than interesting image. With the opportunity to go for the title after this contest, both came out with everything from the first second. Anyway, the image of the day passed on the other side.
After five great rounds between the two, the American was the one who could do the most and convinced the judges to put the scorecards in his favor. Brian he celebrated, he smiled, he respected and now he must begin to imagine himself fighting for the category belt. Now the best opportunity of his life in MMA will come, but for that reason he does not stop being humble with his rivals. At the closing of the event, the two showed an impressive example.
Although either of them could really get a victory, Ortega he connected better shots and thus added better when it came to getting the cards. With very powerful elbows, on several occasions he hurt the Korean. In fact, his left eyebrow ended up with a big cut and bloodied from these sharp situations. They were repeated throughout the five rounds. This being the case, they showed that the rivalry was only in competition.
At the end of the fight, without even knowing what would happen to the judges’ cards, the two were embraced for several seconds, showing great mutual respect and leaving something to talk about. After so much affection, Brian Ortega he knelt before his rival, which the Korean did later as well. Thus, the two made it clear that it is only a sport and that the rivalry must be healthy, without going to greater when the rounds end.
