Frankie Edgar vs Korean Zombie Betting Lines & Tip
Looking at our UFC Fight Night 165 tips for this fight, the UFC betting lines suggest that there isn’t a great deal to separate these two fighters, with Jung being the marginal bookies favourite ahead of the fight.
There’s no doubting Edgar’s abilities and the narrow underdog is fast enough to cause Jung some problems here, but whether he will be able to make the most of his grappling skills against a fighter who isn’t easy to take to the mat has to be doubted. In addition, Jung is sure to want to make an impression in front of his home supporters.
