If you haven’t been paying attention to the South Korean happenings of the sport then you’ve likely forgotten about Chan Sung Jung, better known by Western fans as “The Korean Zombie.” Three years back he challenged Jose Aldo for the Featherweight title and was able to put up a decent fight until dislocating his shoulder in the fourth round. Since then Jung has been sidelined, but not by injury. No, The Korean Zombie had to fulfill his duties as a South Korean citizen and join the armed forces for two years. Sure, it was a bummer for many fans of Jung, but when duty calls you have to answer.
Now that his service has come to an end, it’s time to get excited by the return of the Korean Zombie. He has a difficult test in the form of Dennis Bermudez this Saturday night, but nevertheless you can be sure that we’ll be in for some fireworks. Take a look at the highlight reel below to get a taste of what’s to come.
