“The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung is one of the most exciting fighters in mixed martial arts. After taking a brief hiatus from the sport to fill his mandatory military obligations in his home country of South Korea, Jung showed that he had not lost a step inside of the cage.
In his return bout, The Korean Zombie scored a first-round knockout of Dennis Bermudez. He later suffered a knockout loss to Yair Rodriguez in the final second of his headlining bout at UFC Fight Night in Denver, Colorado, before bouncing back with a TKO win over Renato Moicano in June 2019.
The Korean Zombie has earned performance bonuses in six of his last seven fights.
Ahead of his upcoming fight against former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar at UFC on ESPN+ 23, the UFC released a highlight video featuring the top-five finishes of his career under the ZUFFA banner with the WEC and UFC.
