UFC Busan Results
Here are the full results for the UFC on ESPN+ 23 card taking place on December 21, 2019 in Busan, South Korea.
In the main event, Frankie Edgar fights the Korean Zombie Chan Sung Jung on short notice after Brian Ortega was injured. The Zombie wasted no time with Edgar as he put a hurting on him and finished the very resilient Edgar in 3:18.
Charles Jourdain caused a huge upset when he finished Doo Ho Choi in a back and forth fight! The Canadian establishes himself as a name to remember at 145!
Marc-André Barriault did not have the same fate as he just did not get started until the third round of his fight against Jun Yong Park. He lost for the third time in three UFC fights.
Da Un Jung also made some noise on the main card with a quick KO of Contender Series vet Mike Rodriguez.
On the prelims, Ciryl Gane started slow and picked up the pace by the minute, beating Tanner Boser quite handily. The Canadian was way too tough to back down and took his beating without flinching.
Alexandre Pantoja and Matt Schnell had a super wild 4 minutes fight as both rocked each other. Pantoja landed the faceplant KO on Schnell to get the win.
Raoni Barcelos and Said Nurmagomedov also engaged in a high level back and forth technical fight. The Brazilian’s grappling finally gave him the edge as he won the decision.
