Chansung Jung, who has evolved into a ‘smart zombie’, has succeeded in reviving by winning the ‘Hawaiian Zombie’.
Chansung Jung defeated Dan Ige (USA) with a unanimous decision victory in the 5th round at the main event of UFC on ESPN 25 held at Enterprise UFC Apex, Nevada, USA on the 20th (Korean time).
Chansung Jung’s career record is 17 wins and 6 losses. It is the first time Chansung Jung has won by decision in the UFC since his UFC debut in 2011. The decision loss was against Ortega in October of last year.
The match drew attention as a match between the ‘origin zombie’ and the ’emerging zombie’. Ige referred to himself as a ‘Hawaiian zombie’ and constantly provoked Chan-seong Jung, the ‘original zombie’.
Chansung Jung succeeded in taking a takedown from the first round, taking the initiative and pressing Lee.
In the second round, he hit Ige’s head twice and led the game to an advantage. In the 3rd round, he consistently grabbed the back of Ige and blocked it. Chansung Jung didn’t move as he thought he would, and he showed a dismayed look.
Chan-seong Jeong, who tormented Ige by efficiently mixing hitting and grappling, allowed an effective hit to Ige’s aggressive punch in the last 5 rounds, but after hitting a knee, he grabbed the back mount and reversed the atmosphere.
After the match, Chan-seong Jung said, “I wanted to break the fact that he is a player who only plays fun matches. I wanted to show that he has the versatility to challenge the championship belt.”
But Chansung Jung was also a fighter. I still wanted to have a hot ending. He said, “I wanted a finish in the middle of the match, but I couldn’t. It’s a pity that the record of consecutive finishes was broken, but I’m satisfied that I can show my skills.”
Then, he said, “Now, I’m not number 4, but number 3,” and expressed his will to challenge the title along with the rise in ranking.
