The octagon remained on Yas Island for tonight’s UFC Fight Island 6 event, an 11-bout fight card headlined by Brian Ortega vs. The Korean Zombie.

The former featherweight title challengers, Zombie and Ortega, went toe-to-toe for twenty-five straight minutes this evening in Abu Dhabi. However, after five rounds of action it was clear that ‘T-City’ had done more than enough to earn a unanimous decision victory over ‘TKZ’.

With his dominant performance over Jung, Brian Ortega will now receive the next shot at current featherweight champion Alex Volkanovski.

Fight of the night: Mateusz Gamrot vs. Guram Kutateladze each pocketed an extra $50k for their thrilling war which served as the featured bout of tonight’s preliminary card. After three rounds of thrilling action Kutateladze was awarded a split-decision win over Gamrot by the judges in attendance (29-28, 28-29, 29-28).

Performance of the night: Jimmy Crute earned an extra $50k for his knockout of Modestas Bukauskas. The Australian standout was able to floor the Lithuanian fighter with a combination early in round one. Then, when Bukauskas got up, Crute sent him right back down with another combination for the fight-ending finish.

Performance of the night: Former UFC strawweight champion Jessica Andrade made a huge statement in her flyweight debut this evening against Katlyn Chookagian. The Brazilian looked as ferocious as ever and eventually put her opponent away with a first round TKO victory after landing a pair of nasty shots to the body.

Rather surprisingly to many, Brian Ortega was snubbed of a performance bonus despite his lopsided unanimous decision victory over former title challenger The Korean Zombie this evening on Yas Island.
