“The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung To Make UFC Return In Late 2016 Or Early 2017

It looks like MMA fans can start preparing themselves for the return of “The Korean Zombie.”

Former UFC Featherweight title contender Chan Sung Jung put his career in the UFC on hold in October of 2014 to fulfill mandatory military service that is required for all South Korean citizens.

Jung, dubbed “The Korean Zombie” in the MMA world, will see his military service requirements come to an end this October, and according to his team, he hopes to fight inside the Octagon again in late 2016 or early 2017.

Chan Sung Jung (13-4) last competed in the UFC back in August of 2013, where he lost via TKO to then-champion Jose Aldo. The fight was Jung’s first loss following a three-fight win streak he had compiled prior to the title shot.
