Best bets for UFC Fight Night: Chan Sung Jung vs. Dan Ige

It’s hard to follow an epic Pay-Per-View card like UFC 263, but sometimes a good old fashioned scrap between top 10 featherweights is a fitting follow-up. And from a betting perspective, it doesn’t get much closer than this week’s main event.

Chan Sung Jung and Dan Ige are basically a true pick ’em, and either could close as a mild betting favorite on fight night. Whoever wins will stay in the division’s title picture, but the fans should all be winners if these two fight to their preferred style and potential.

Prelims start at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN2/ESPN+ and the main card begins at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2/ESPN+.
