UFC Vegas 37: Brandon Jenkins Is Last-Minute Replacement To Face Zhu Rong

Brandon Jenkins is ready to make his UFC debut.

Under less than one-week short notice, Jenkins will face against Chinese fighter Zhu Rong. Dakota Bush and Rong were supposed to share the octagon, but Bush contracted Covid-19 and withdrew.

Jenkins is on a three-fight winning streak.

The last time he fought was at PFL 9 where he earned a first-round KO victory via flying knee. This is going to be his third fight in the following year. Ten out of his 15 victories are via KO/TKO, and 3 via submissions.

Rong, 21, is a true finisher just like his rival.

Eleven out of his 17 victories are via KO and four are via submissions. He is training in one of the best teams, the American Top Team, and is considered one of the most talented prospects.

He suffered a loss in his UFC debut against Rodrigo Vargas.

UFC Fight Night 192 – also called UFC Vegas 37 — is going to take place Saturday night at 7 p.m. The headlining event will be a light heavyweight bout between Anthony Smith and Ryan Spann.

Here’s the updated card for Saturday:
