Dennis “the Menace” Bermudez faced “The Korean Zombie”, Chan Sung Jung, in the main event of UFC Fight Night 104 tonight (Sat., Feb. 4, 2017) live on FOX Sports 1 from inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
Chan Sung Jung was coming off a very long layoff, his last fight being the title fight he lost to Jose Aldo back in 2013 at UFC 163. He tore his shoulder in that bout and subsequently entered the Korean military to complete his mandatory service. The 9th-ranked Bermudez had won two straight and was looking to gain a top contender status with a win. Both men were known for action-packed rounds.
Bermudez opened with a teep, then hit a low kick that the Korean Zombie countered. Jung looked for a takedown of his own, which Bermudez defended. Dennis landed a huge right overhand that stunned Chan Sung Jung. He backed up the Korean, landing a left hook. The Korean Zombie defended a takedown, then opened his hands, inviting a brawl. A few seconds later, he hit a gorgeous uppercut as Bermudez jabbed, dropping him hard. He stepped in and began to tee off as the referee stepped in. First round stoppage for Chan Sung Jung! What a comeback!
Chan Sung Jung hugs Brian Stann in the post-fight interview, clearly ecstatic to get his first win in nearly five years. He opens up in Korean, and wishes his country to be strong and to live in harmony. Featherweight is certainly a brighter place with his return.
Official results: Chan Sung Jung def. Dennis Bermudez by knockout at 2:29 of Round 1
