A must-see attraction from the moment he set foot in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Chan Sung Jung rarely fails to entertain the masses. “The Korean Zombie” draws his first assignment of 2019 in the UFC Fight Night 154 main event, where he will do battle with Renato Carneiro on Saturday at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, South Carolina. Injuries and mandatory service in the South Korean military have resulted in lengthy periods of inactivity for Jung, who has fought just twice in the past six years. The 32-year-old featherweight last appeared at UFC Fight Night 139 in November, when he was the victim of a last-second reverse upward elbow from Yair Rodriguez in the consensus “Knockout of the Year.” As Jung prepares for his showdown with Carneiro, here are five things you should know about him.
