The last time we saw Chan Sung Jung, “The Korean Zombie” as many prefer to call him, he was living up to his nickname as he tried to keep his arm from falling off during his bout with Jose Aldo. It was a true testament to his resolve and toughness that he was trying to pop his shoulder back into place in the middle of a fight. It’s that kind of grit that has had fans salivating for the return of The Korean Zombie for over thee years now. Well, good news is his military leave is up and he’s already been making the preparations for his return to the octagon. Jung also has an idea of who exactly he’d like to beat up upon his return.
The legend BJ Penn.
While many people, including myself, think that BJ Penn has nothing more to prove and should walk off into the sunset, there are a great many who are curious as to what the former lightweight and welterweight champion has left in the tank. His move to Jackson-Winklejohn MMA was a bit of a surprise, but one that could potential prove to be fruitful in the long run.
Chan Sung Jung has his sights set on Penn and seems to be pretty excited to not only do battle with a legend, but to return to action after sitting on the sidelines for so long. Check out the video update below as Chan Sung Jung readies himself for a return to battle.
If the fight were to happen, do you think The Korean Zombie has what it takes to beat down BJ Penn or would the veteran spoil Chan Sung Jung’s return?
