UFC NEWS – “Korean Zombie”: If The UFC Calls, I'll Be Ready For Aldo


After his 7 second knockout victory over former 145 pound title challenger, Mark Hominick, Chan Sung Jung could be in consideration for a top spot in the UFC’s featherweight division. Although the “Korean Zombie” knows he’s only had four fights under ZUFFA owned promotional banners, he is very excited if the opportunity of a title shot is offered to him in the near future.

“I doubt that they’ll make that match up right now, but if they do I think I’d be ready for it. I’m guessing that the matchmakers will give me at least one fight and if I win that then maybe I’ll be in line for a title shot, but that’s up to the UFC to decide. But, whenever I get the shot, I’ll be ready. I think I’ve improved my game overall and I keep trying to improve as an all around fighter … I definitely want to get back to train with Team Alpha Male again, but at this point I don’t know when that will be. The training at Korean Top Team is top notch, so I know I’m getting great training here, but yes, when the time and situation permit I would like to go back and train some more with Urijah and the guys.”

After an 0-2 start in the UFC, Chan Sung Jung has won his last two fights in decisive fashion. Although other featherweight fighters with more wins on their record may argue that they are more deserving, none of them have ever pulled off a Brazilian jiu-jitsu “Twister” victory or a UFC record tying 7 second knockout. Although he only holds a .500 record of 2-2 in the UFC, fans and UFC brass acknowledge that it’s not about what the Korean fighter has done on paper, but rather how he’s gone about doing it.
