Chan Sung Jung, better known as “The Korean Zombie” returned to the octagon after a three and a half year absence and stunned Dennis Bermudez with a first round knockout. He got rocked early, but recovered and never looked back. His takedown defense was stellar and clearly still possesses knockout power.
The knockout also earned Jung one of the $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses. After the fight a shot of his wife crying in her seat was shown. It was the first time she got to see her husband fight in the octagon. During Jung’s post fight interview he mentioned the situation in his homeland of Korea not being great. He said morale is low, but he just wanted to wish his country to be strong and to live in harmony.
It was great to see “The Korean Zombie” back inside the cage and getting back in the win column. I, for one, have a lot of respect for Chan Sung Jung and look forward to seeing him back in the octagon soon.
Here are few tweets from his peers after his stunning knockout.
