Chan Sung Jung Return Date Targeted
"The Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung may now have a date for his return to the Octagon.
Multiple sources are reporting that a bout between Jung and Dennis Bermudez is being worked on as the main event of for a UFC Fight Night event in Houston on Feb. 4.
Jung last fought in August 2013, coming up short in a UFC featherweight championship bout with Jose Aldo. He took time away from the Octagon following the bout in order to fulfill the military service time required of all South Korean males.
"I think this may extend my career," Jung told MMAFighting.com in a 2014 interview. "It gives me some much needed time to heal I’ll have time to work on my skills without pushing myself to the limit, which is necessary when training for a fight."
Bermudez has won his last two bouts, both of which have been his only bouts in 2016. He defeated Tatsuya Kawajiri in February and Rony Jason in August, both via unanimous decision.
The UFC Fight Night on Feb. 4 takes place from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, one day before FOX broadcasts Super Bowl LI in the same city.
