“I was told that if I win this fight, I will get a title shot,” Jung told Rank5 (via BJPenn.com). “I was fighting for myself in my twenties, but now I’m fighting for my family. Even though I do not have the same physical strength, I have amassed much more experience and know-how.”
Chan Sung Jung had a good score in the last three fights. He defeated Dustin Poirier via D’Arce choke at UFC On Fuel TV 3 on May 15, 2012. Then he was defeated in the UFC Featherweight title fight to Jose Aldo via punches at UFC 163 on August 3, 2013. Korean Zombie was absent for four years due to military obligations. Yet, this didn’t affect his performances at all! On February 4, 2017, at UFC Fight Night 104, he knocked Dennis Bermudez out via world-class punch in the first round.
Frankie Edgar also has the score of 2-1 in the last three fights. The Answer defeated Yair Rodriguez at UFC 211 via doctor stoppage on May 13, 2017. Then Brian Ortega knocked him out at UFC 222 on March 3, 2018. In his last fight, Edgar rebounded back with a unanimous decision victory over Cub Swanson. They fought at UFC Fight Night 128 on April 21, 2018.
