The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to South Korea for the first time in four years this week for UFC on ESPN+ 23. in Busan.

The UFC Busan fight card is topped by home country hero Chan Sung Jung (aka The Korean Zombie). Jung remains in the main event after former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar agreed to be a short-notice replacement for his original opponent, Brian Ortega. Ortega fell off the card after he suffered a partial tear of his right anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).

Edgar had been on track for his bantamweight debut opposite Cory Sandhagen in January, but when the UFC needed a high profile opponent to keep Jung in the main event in his home country, the former champion jumped at the opportunity to headline a card in South Korea, although the fight keeps him in the featherweight division for the moment.

The UFC Busan co-main event features a light heavyweight bout between Volkan Oezdemir and Aleksandar Rakić, two fighters coming from very different circumstances that are both trying to find their way into title contention.
