"So, I've decided to give this one more shot. But, the pride I once had for fighting 'Zombie Style' has been shattered. I'm going to change. It's okay if you take away my Korean Zombie title. It's okay if everyone boos me. It's okay if no one in the world ever cheers for me again. For everyone who has supported me thus far, that I have let down... I make this promise to you that I will never fight with the same style, ever again."
In a blog post after WEC 51, exciting featherweight Chan Sung Jung has vowed to change his rock 'em, sock 'em ways. The "Korean Zombie" rose to fame in the U.S. after his legendary three round war with Leonard Garcia on the Spike televised portion of the WEC's one and only pay per view, WEC 48: "Aldo vs Faber." Sung Jung went shot for shot with the "Bad Boy" and refused to back down. Despite coming up on the short end of a split decision, he gained a huge following for his heart and willingness to stand and trade. In his next fight, at WEC 51 against George Roop, he never looked for a takedown and was brutally knocked out with a head kick in the second round. That seems to have been enough for him to ditch the "Zombie Style" in favor of fresh tactics. Do you support Sung Jung in his decision? Have at it, Maniacs.
