Chan Sung Jung, ‘The Korean Zombie’ has been away from the UFC since August of 2013 when lost a battle to Jose Aldo for the featherweight championship. Jung earned the respect of the MMA world by giving epic wars against high-caliber opponents, today we are just a few days away from his return after dealing with injuries and most of all, after serving his country’s military requirements.
‘The Korean Zombie’ is a fighter that always goes forward, with good combinations of boxing, high kicks and a chin that has been put to the test plenty of times. If the fight goes to the ground, he can use his long limbs to control his opponent, if that wasn’t enough, he is a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
The only doubt in everyone’s minds is how will the so-called ‘ring rust’ affect Jung against a dangerous fighter like Dennis Bermudez who is riding a 2-win streak.
Jung has earned awards both for submission of the year as well as fight of the year, in the video below you can watch him submit Leonard Garcia with a brilliant Twister.
