The Walking Bread? ‘Korean Zombie’ scores his own burger ahead of UFC 273 (Pic)

John Montagu would be proud.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contender Chan Sung Jung, best known in the combat sports world as “The Korean Zombie,” got his own line of convenience store goodies as part of a UFC 273 sponsorship in his native South Korea.

I’m not into energy drinks (also available in a low-calorie option) but I would definitely wolf down that “Zombie” burger. Can’t be any worse than what’s under the lamps at 7-11 here in the states, though I’m sure in Miami this would be sold as Three Piece and a Zombie.

MASSIVE MIDDLEWEIGHT MATCH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Sydney, Australia, for the first time in five years on Sat., Sept. 9, 2023, with a 185-pound world title fight inside Qudos Bank Arena. In the ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event, Middleweight roost-ruler, Israel Adesanya, plans to silence No. 5-seeded contender, Sean Strickland. In UFC 293’s hard-hitting Heavyweight co-main event, No-6-ranked fan favorite, Tai Tuivasa, locks horns with towering Russian, Alexander Volkov (No. 8).

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Jung (17-5) agreed to step up on short notice to battle reigning featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski on April 9 in Jacksonville, Fla., an opportunity that presented itself when original headliner, Max Holloway, went down with an undisclosed injury.

This might be the last hurrah for the 35 year-old Jung, who is coming off a unanimous decision victory over featherweight veteran Dan Ige back June 2021. Volkanovski (23-1) has won 20 straight fights and remains undefeated under the UFC banner at 10-0.
