If you thought the broken foot and dislocated shoulder that Jose Aldo and Chan Sung Jung respectively fought through at UFC 163 were gnarly enough, then you probably didn’t hear that Aldo was also diagnosed with kidney stones shortly after the fight. And if you think that’s bad, you have probably yet to hear the latest development — turns out, “The Korean Zombie” also suffered a fractured orbital bone during the fight, as revealed yesterday by FoxSports.com.
The “Korean Zombie” also suffered a fractured orbital bone during the loss, his manager Brian “Shug” Rhee told FOX Sports.
Orbital bone breaks are often seen in combat sports like MMA and boxing. Treatment and recovery time vary depending on severity. According to Rhee, Jung is expected to visit specialists for both his shoulder and eye by the end of the week, and should have more information about his expected prognosis then.
Honestly, we can’t recall the last time two men suffered so many in-ring and delayed injuries from a single fight. Unless you consider a Brazilian gas station a “ring,” which they obviously do, so we don’t know why we just made that last statement.
If you were somehow still doubting Jose Aldo’s destructive power, get this. According to a recent interview with yonhapnews, Chan Sung Jung believes that he also also fractured his right foot during his 4th round TKO loss to Aldo last Saturday. The following photo seems to confirm his suspicions.
In one fight, Jung has gone from “The Korean Zombie” to Mr. Glass. If there has ever been another UFC fight that produced more injuries than this, by all means enlighten us. At this point, Jung is looking at a longer recovery period than Corey Hill, Aron Ralston, that guy who Rousimar Palhares maimed and little Jimmy Pocket with rickets and the peg leg combined.
On the bright side, at least Jung now has plenty of time to catch up on Breaking Bad. If only I didn’t have such a demanding job, maybe I could do the same. *kicks can*
