'Korean Zombie' Chan Sung Jung hopes for mid-year return, with hopes of title shot - MMA Fighting
But on Monday, Jung's manager Brian "Shug" Rhee told MMA Fighting that the Zombie is on the mend, and that he plans to be ready to resume his fight career sometime around Memorial Day.
"Originally we were shooting for March as an ideal time to fight, but realistically, it's going to be more like May/June-ish," he said. "His rehab is going OK, but not as quickly as we were hoping. But he's on track to make a May/June return to the octagon."
As it turns out, that date might work out perfectly for him to line up with the winner of the Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar title match. Those two are going to battle at UFC 156 on Feb. 2, so Jung's time frame would give the winner about four months between bouts.
