That’s because White says whomever walks away victorious in the UFC Fight Island 6 main event will get a shot at the UFC featherweight championship.
“Yes, I think so,” White said to Sports Illustrated. “First, this kid (The Korean Zombie) has superstar written all over him. He was called into the military in the prime of his career in South Korea. Then he gets out and has that incredible fight with Yair Rodriguez. He gets caught with one second left with that crazy elbow. He’s battled a couple injuries and had some bad luck along the way, but this is a big fight with Ortega. I’m excited it’s finally happening. Whoever wins this fight, it catapults one of these guys into a shot at the title.”
