Check out the betting odds for UFC Vegas 29, where Dan Ige is slightly favored over “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung in the main event.

It’s time for UFC Vegas 29 to pop off from the promotion’s own APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. We’ve got top tier featherweights atop the card as the #8 ranked, Dan Ige, collides with the #4 ranked, Chan Sung Jung. Bloody Elbow is here to hook you up with the betting lines for this likely banger, as well as for the rest of the UFC Vegas 29 lineup.

The oddsmakers are siding with Ige on this one, but not by a great deal. His moneyline can be found around the the -125 mark, with “The Korean Zombie” clocking in at a small underdog value that tops out at about +115. That means a winning $100 wager on “50K”would see a total return of $180, and the same size gamble on Jung could potentially win you $215 altogether.

When it comes to the prop bet surrounding whether or not this bout will making it to the scorecards, we’ve got a pick’em line on our hands. Both props possess minus moneylines, with ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ slightly favored at -120, and ‘Fight goes to decision’ on deck at -105. I think the reality is that both men are pretty hard to kill. I mean Jung’s nickname includes the word ‘zombie’ for crying out loud. You really have to uncork a nuke to stop him. Then we have Ige, who had all three of his professional losses come by way of decision. We’ve seen Dan eat some pretty big bombs without ever truly wilting or giving up.

We all know how lethal Zombie can be. Look at what he did to Frankie Edgar and Renato Moicano in the opening round. Go check out how he sub’d Dustin Poirier with a D’arce, or how he became one of the only few UFC fighters to ever hit an ultra-rare twister submission in a fight. The prop bet ‘Jung wins inside distance’ can be scooped up at a sizable underdog value of +280.

Ige is coming off of a sensational 22-seconds knockout of Gavin Tucker, but he’s been more of a Fight of the Night kind of guy. Before that, he was involved in four straight decisions, two of which were split. Nonetheless, the exotic option ‘Ige wins inside distance’ is sitting at +215, which is a smaller dog tag than Jung’s line.
