The Korean Zombie is most definitely considered a fan favorite when it comes to the UFC, and it is hard to blame anyone for liking him. The Korean Zombie — whose name is actually Chan-Sung Jung — has has a pretty great run in the UFC since switching over from the WEC, where he was coming off of two losses. In the UFC he avenged a loss to Leonard Garcia before knocking out Mark Hominick and submitting Dustin Poirier while injured.
That is impressive, but sadly it didn’t earn him a title shot, one that he thinks that he deserves.
According to an interview with BJPenn.com , Jung feels that Anthony Pettis “cut in line” by dropping down from Lightweight to Featherweight and being granted an immediate title shot. Especially considering that Pettis was at Lightweight for quite a while, even holding the WEC’s Lightweight Championship. Pettis is set to meet Jose Aldo at UFC 163 in Brazil on August 3rd now in his first Featherweight bout.
What do you guys think, does Jung have a point?
