Jose Aldo vs. Chan Sung Jung fight results UFC 163, Round 1

The main event of the UFC 163: "Aldo vs. Korean Zombie" pay-per-view (PPV) tonight (Sat., Aug. 3, 2013) at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, featured one of the pound-for-pound greatest fighters in mixed martial arts (MMA) today, Jose Aldo, defending his featherweight championship in the main event against Chan Sung Jung, a man few believed going in would have what it takes to dethrone the 145-pound king.

If there was any thought that the "Korean Zombie" would be intimidated even in the slightest, that went away when he came pushing forward with punches early on. He was the aggressor, in fact, for much of the first half of the opening frame.

Then Aldo showed just why he's so damn good and exploded with a quick combination that got everyone's attention.

Still, Sung Jung pushed ahead, not backing away from exchanging punches one bit. Sure, he was more calculated but Aldo was matching that with patience, choosing to pick his spots and strike quickly as opposed to an overwhelming blitz of violence.

The threat was always there, however.

Eventually, the "Zombie" was faking takedowns and looking to come over the top. In response to this, the Brazilian earned a takedown of his own with a stunning speed in a scramble. The round ended with Sung Jung fending off a spinning wheel kick and flying knee.

Exclamation point.
