Chan Sung Jung Targets UFC Gold

Alexander Volkanovski captured the UFC featherweight championship earlier this month against Max Holloway. After his finish over Edgar, Jung made it clear that he’s gunning for 145-pound gold.

“I… Want… Volkanovski!”

Jung would go on to issue a brief statement on his massive victory in a Facebook post.

“Nothing will change. It’s not over yet, so I’ll spare no effort to learn and learn the same. Today was the best in Busan. Thank you everyone. #ufcbusan #ufc #aomg #koreanzombie”

With the victory over Edgar, Jung now has two straight finishing wins. In both bouts, the “Korean Zombie” put his opponent away in the opening frame. Going into the bout with Edgar, Jung was coming off a 58-second TKO win over Renato Moicano. Since returning from mandatory military service, Jung has gone 3-1.
