Who will win Edgar vs Sung Jung?

It is always risky for fighters to agree to late call-ups to replace a fellow combatant who is forced to withdraw from a card. The fact Frankie Edgar has to go into the Korean Zombie's home country just adds to the difficulty.

Jung possesses plenty of power and explosiveness on his feet, while Edgar is a polished fighter in his own right. We're expecting a close contest but it's hard to go past the home-town man.
