Few minutes after he brutally knocked out Renato Moicano in the main event of Saturday night’s UFC Fight Night 154 in Greenville, Chan Sung Jung has been called out by Jeremy Stephens.
The ‘Korean Zombie’ was called out by the fellow featherweight KO mixed martial artist as he looks to take the title away from him.
In a Tweet, Stephens said:
“I’ll take the @KoreanZombieMMA next! Let’s go @danawhite @seanshelby @ufc it’s the most exciting fight to make. Congrats on quick work, see ya soon!”
A lot of fans will be ecstatic to watch this encounter as both Jung and Stephens are ferocious punchers who could stand toe-to-toe with each other on any occasion in the featherweight division.
Jung who has now earned 2-1 knockout wins, with the previous coming over Dennis Bermudez saw off highly touted Moicano. The Korean Zombie, since after returning from mandatory military service in his country South Korea, has lost a fight to Yair Rodriguez.
There is no doubt Jung would make headlines in the UFC featherweight division. as he always impresses his fans anytime, any day he steps into the cage, whether he wins or loses.
Stephens also earns the same reputation for being a hard-line fighter, having stepped into the cage since 2007, still high up there 12 years after. He entered into the Jung’s fight on the back of two losses on the bounce, the first being a defeat in the hands of Zabit Magomedsharipov and then, to Jose Aldo.
