Jung Chan Sung (or Chan Sung Jung depending on your local naming convention) is a fan favorite known to most as “The Korean Zombie”, and he’s one half of the main event at UFC 163 in Brazil. Jung began studying hapkido and kickboxing after being bullied and beat up numerous times in his youth due to his small frame.  The Korean Zombie began his mixed martial arts career in 2007 at Pancrase 81.  There he submitted his opponent Hyung-Geol Lee by armbar in the second round.  It was the quarterfinal match of the Pancrase Korea Neo-Blood lightweight tournament.  He went on to submit In-Seok Yoo by rear naked choke in the semifinal round and won the tournament with a TKO victory over Hyung-Geol Lee at Pancrase 87.  The tournament took six months to complete.

Jung then entered and won the KoreaFC 65kg Tournament.  He submitted his first two opponents in the first round.  He defeated Jung-Beom Choi by armbar and Dae-Han Choi by triangle choke.  He defeated Jung-Hun Cho in the finals via unanimous decision.  Following those two tournament wins, Jung moved on to the DEEP organization where he faced and defeated Michihiro Omigawa via unanimous decision at Deep 38.  He earned a 17 second KO victory over Fanjin Son at Deep 39 four months later.  Jung then entered the 2009 Sengoku Featherweight Grand Prix where he submitted Shintaro Ishiwatari with a rear naked choke in the closing thirty seconds of the first round.

In the quarterfinals of the tournament, Jung received his first taste of defeat in a unanimous decision loss to Masanori Kanehara. He defeated Matt Jaggers via second round submission (triangle choke) in a reserve bout but was never called back into the tournament.  Instead he made his WEC debut in a contentious split decision loss to Leonard Garcia at WEC 48.  The fight was awarded both Fight of the Night and Fight of the Year honors for 2010.  Jung lost his second WEC fight to George Roop.  The headkick KO was the first stoppage loss of his career.

Since the Roop loss, Jung is undefeated in the UFC.  He avenged his loss to Leonard Garcia via submission in the closing seconds of the second round.  It was the first and only successful execution of the Twister submission in UFC history. The fight also won him Submission of the Night and Submission of the Year honors for 2011.  In his second UFC outing, Jung earned a Knockout of the Night honor with a seven second KO of former featherweight title challenger Mark Hominick.  He closed out his 2012 with a fourth round submission victory over Dustin Poirier, finishing the Louisiana fighter with a D’arce choke.  That fight earned Jung both Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night bonuses as well as Fight of the Year honors for 2012.  On Saturday at UFC 163, Jung will face Jose Aldo for the UFC Featherweight Championship.  With four “of The Night bonuses” in three fights, fireworks are expected.
