This is the UFC Vegas 29 live blog for The Korean Zombie vs. Dan Ige, the featherweight headliner for Saturday’s fight card at UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

Ige, who’s No. 8 in the UFC’s official rankings, hopes to solidify himself as a serious contender at 145 pounds after a 7-2 run in the division including a knockout win over Gavin Tucker in March that won him his second performance bonus. His fight with Zombie is another shot at a top-ranked fighter that could be the bridge to a title eliminator in the near future. Zombie, a one-time title challenger, is left in the position of beating back a rising contender. At No. 4, he stands to lose the most after a lopsided decision loss to Brian Ortega in his previous outing. The 34-year-old veteran spoke openly about retirement after his most recent loss, but decided to take another run at the featherweight belt.
