"Korean Zombie" Finally Set To Return Following Long Military CommitmentPublished on February 3rd, 2017 3:44 pm EST
UFC fans are in for a treat on Saturday night as Chan Sung Jung, aka "The Korean Zombie", is finally set to make his return to the Octagon.
"The Korean Zombie" is universally regarded as one of the most exciting fighters to have ever stepped foot into the Octagon. If Sung Jung isn't getting involved in bloody slugfests, he is tapping out his opponents with a rarely used submission move.
Who can forget The Korean Zombie's memorable fight against Leonard Garcia at UFC 48 in April of 2010, or his amazing tilt against Dustin Poirier in May of 2012? The Korean Zombie has proved on multiple occasions that he is can't miss TV when he is fighting.
After losing a title shot to Jose Aldo in August of 2013, The Korean Zombie pulled himself from the UFC so that he could fulfil his military duty to the South Korean government. Chan Sung Jung had to serve two years in the military due to being a South Korean citizen, and he elected to fulfil his duty after suffering multiple injuries in 2014.
In his return fight, The Korean Zombie will be squaring off against Dennis Bermudez, who is currently the #9 ranked Featherweight in the UFC. Bermudez is coming off of two straight decision wins (Rony Jason, Tatsuya Kawajiri) and would propel himself up the Featherweight title ladder with a win against the Korean Zombie. That will be easier said than done, however, as Chan Sung Jung has shown a propensity to win a fight in any possible fashion.
Here are the current odds for this fight - as you can see, Bermudez is a slight favourite, likely due to the Korean Zombie's assumed ring rust:
Chan Sung Jung, +175
Dennis Bermudez, -190
According to these odds, a successful $100 wager on the Korean Zombie would yield a total profit of $175, while a successful $190 bet on Bermudez would return a total profit of $100.
This should be a great fight, as The Korean Zombie rarely turns in subpar performances.
