After four minutes and fifty seconds of action in the fifth and final round, The Korean Zombie appeared to be on his way to a unanimous decision victory.
That is when the unthinkable happened. After standing and acknowledging each others efforts, The Korean Zombie and Yair Rodriguez decided to throw leather one final time before the horn sounded to end round five.
With just one second remaining on the clock, “El Pantera” was able to catch The Korean Zombie with a stunning elbow which sent Jung crashing face first into the canvas.
The highlight reel stoppage caused a plethora of fighter reactions on social media and had many fans and analysts claiming Yair’s finish of Jung the “greatest of all time”.
