MMA fighter Jung Chan-sung, popularly known as Korean Zombie, is considering retirement. The Korean Zombie lost to Volkanovski at UFC 273.
Jung is one of the most popular fighters in the UFC. He earned his moniker from his ability to keep fighting aggressively despite taking damage like a zombie. Also, he became famous after making his debut in the World Extreme Cagefighting in 2010. Jung started fighting in the UFC the following year.
The fight against Volkanovski was a title bout for the world featherweight category. According to iGamingKO.com sources, the Australian took four rounds to win against the Korean Zombie. Also, the latter refused to stop fighting despite taking a lot of beating. Jung struggled in the first two rounds. He applied some pressure in the third round. However, Volkanovski was too strong for him.
Korean Zombie Lost to Volkanovski
According to sports news reports, Jung continued to fight against Volkanovski in the fourth round. However, referee Herb Dean stopped the fight even though the Korean Zombie was still on his feet. Fighters and fans praised the referee’s decision to stop the fight.
After the fight, Jung praised Volkanovski. However, he said that fighting Alexander the Great was like hitting a wall. Also, Jung noted that he is not UFC championship material. Thus, he wants to reevaluate where his fighting career is heading.
His statement could mean two things. First, it could be a statement after a tough fight. Second, it could be an indicator that he is considering retirement.
On the other hand, Volkanovski admitted that he hoped the referee stoppage happened a little earlier. That way, it limits the damage done to Jung.
According to free sports betting odds, the last time Jung challenged for the title was in 2013. The fight ended via a TKO in the fourth round.
