Jung won two more bouts – against Mark Hominick in 2011 and Dustin Poirier 2012 – and in August of 2013 found himself standing across the Octagon from Jose Aldo, for the UFC featherweight title. It wasn’t his night and Aldo retained his belt with a fourth round stoppage. That was the last time we saw the Korean Zombie in the Octagon. He is without a doubt one of the most exciting fighters we have on the UFC roster and his absence seems to have accentuated this excitement around his upcoming fight. Having returned to South Korea and served his compulsory national service, he is back on the scene and looking to make some waves.
Welcoming him back to professional competition is a strong wrestler with finishing capabilities in all ranges. Currently ranked number nine, Dennis “The Menace” Bermudez will want to shut Jung out and deny him any relevance in the top 10 of the division. With wins over the likes of Clay Guida, Tatsuya Kawajiri and soaring Hawaiian, Max Holloway, there can be no doubt that Bermudez has the tools to beat anyone in the division. To claim a victory over Jung may not alter his position in the rankings significantly, but it would make a very important statement that he is willing to take risky fights and beat tricky and unpredictable opposition. also you can watch Bermudez vs. Korean Zombie live free of cost

What fascinates me here is that Jung is somewhat of an unknown commodity. We saw before his hiatus that he can and will stand and trade with anyone, he can take a hell of a shot (hence the “Zombie” monicker), and has a very diverse grappling attack. What has his time in the army taught him? Will he be fitter and stronger? Has he spent time studying the sport from afar and growing his fight IQ? I certainly know from personal experience that a break in competition, even as long as three or four years, can alter the way you see the sport and allow for a better understanding of the overall picture once you can remove yourself from it for a period.
Bermudez vs Jung live online Bermudez brings consistency in competition to the table, something that cannot be overlooked.
