Following his main event victory over Jeremy Stephens at Saturday’s “UFC Fight Night 44” event in San Antonio, Cub Swanson has since been called out by former featherweight title challenger “The Korean Zombie.”
Chan Sung Jung (13-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) took to twitter to challenge Swanson on Sunday:
@KoreanZombieMMA: “@CubSwanson Fight me.”
The Korean Zombie has been out of action since UFC 163, which took place in August of 2013, where he lost to featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo in his shot at 145-pound gold.
After such a long layoff, it seems unlikely that the UFC would pit Jung against an opponent like Swanson, who likely will face the winner of the Mendes vs. Aldo rematch. But, one can’t blame “TKZ” for trying to get a high-profile bout in his return.
