No Drama For Korean Zombie – The Official Website of the Ultimate Fighting Championship

I was planning to have a fight camp at Fight Ready in Arizona since the coaching staff and sparring partners there are great, Jung said. My last two fights proved how good they were. Due to the coronavirus situation, I could not go to Arizona, but luckily some sponsors were willing to help with my fight camp cost in Korea. With their financial assistance, I was able to invite a striking coach and sparring partners to Korea. I would say having a fight camp in Korea is the only thing how COVID-19 has affected my life at this moment.

Thats good news and a good sign, because it means Jung can concentrate solely on the fight, a pivotal one for him after spectacular back-to-back knockouts of Renato Moicano and Frankie Edgar that put two more bonus checks in his pocket. They also kept his streak of no decisions going, making it nine straight fights in which he hasnt had to hear the judges scorecards.

I just realized that I have not gone to a decision over the years, but I always prepare for all fights to go to a decision and this fight is one of those, said Jung, whose last distance bout was a decision loss to Leonard Garcia in 2010 that was perhaps the greatest fight in WEC history.

Jung has come a long way since those days in the blue cage, and despite all the hurdles hes had to get over to arrive in Saturdays main event, hes still on top of his game and one win away from a second title shot. The first one in 2013 against Jose Aldo didnt go his way, but if he gets to a title fight again, he believes things will be different. How different? Thats a chat for another day. For now, its T-City on Fight Island.

I need to admit that I was not ready for the champion position at that time, Jung said. Comparing my condition and skills in the past, I am now well prepared enough to challenge the champion at this present moment. Fighting Aldo was a great experience for me, but my focus is on fighting Ortega and not for the title shot, yet.
