  • This Week’s MMA Birthdays: Chan Sung Jung Turns 27 By: Brian Knapp

    Chan Sung Jung turns 27 this week. | Photo: Sherdog.com



    Established as one of the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s most popular fighters and one of MMA’s premier featherweights, Chan Sung Jung will celebrate his 27th birthday on March 17.

    Jung has rattled off three wins in four appearances, though injuries have curbed some of the enthusiasm surrounding him. “The Korean Zombie” last appeared at UFC 163 in August, when he failed in his bid to unseat featherweight champion Jose Aldo at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A shoulder injury suffered in the fourth round led to a technical knockout loss and has kept him on the sidelines ever since. In four UFC appearances, Jung has earned four post-fight bonuses -- two for “Submission of the Night,” one for “Knockout of the Night” and another for “Fight of the Night” -- worth a total of $210,000. He made history at UFC Fight Night 24 in March 2011, when he submitted Leonard Garcia with a twister and became the first fighter ever to end a bout with the maneuver inside the Octagon.

    Spawned by Korean Top Team, Jung has secured 11 of his 13 professional victories by knockout, technical knockout or submission. Wins over 2009 Sengoku featherweight grand prix finalist Michihiro Omigawa, American Top Team’s Dustin Poirier, former TKO Major League MMA champion Mark Hominick and reigning bantamweight King of Pancrase Shintaro Ishiwatari highlight his resume.
