It’s been three-and-a-half years since Chan Sung Jung stepped foot into the Octagon. Some MMA insiders expected him to be covered in cage rust and since Dennis Bermudez had fought seven times while “The Korean Zombie” was away on military duty to his native South Korea, the time was ripe for the hearts of fight fans to get ripped out of their collective chests.
Everything changed when a perfect right uppercut on the inside destroyed Bermudez’ equilibrium. Once “The Menace” crumbled in a heap, Zombie unloaded a series of follow-up punches until Herb Dean pulled him off. The official time of the knockout was 2:49 of the opening round.
