UFC Fight Night 139 live results: Korean Zombie vs. Yair Rodriguez

Welcome to F4WOnline.com's live coverage of UFC Fight Night 139: The Korean Zombie vs. Rodriguez, emanating from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

The Octagon heads to where it all began for the UFC's 25th Anniversary Event in Denver, with a card headlined by two exciting bouts and an undercard full of fighters with lots of potential.

In the main event, it will be a battle between two of the most exciting fighters at 145 pounds as "The Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung takes on Yair Rodriguez, who took this fight on short notice as a replacement for Frankie Edgar. Both men have been out of action for well over a year and are looking to get back into the title picture.

In the co-main event, it is a potential war at 170 pounds as Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone goes against Mike Perry in a fight that has gotten somewhat personal due to Cerrone's war with former coach Mike Winklejohn, who will be in the corner of Perry.

Also on the card is the return of former UFC Women's Featherweight Champion Germaine de Randamie as she takes on Raquel Pennington, and the card features a lot of prospects in the likes of Maycee Barber, Luis Pena, Devonte Smith and recent TUF winner Mike Trizano.

Follow along with our live coverage of the event beginning at 7 p.m. Eastern time with preliminary action all the way through the main card.
