Dan Ige called for a fight with Chan Sung Jung and now he’s got it.
Ige (#8) knocked out Gavin Tucker in just 22 seconds at UFC Fight Night 187 in March and now gets his shot at a higher-ranked opponent in the featherweight division. He’ll face The Korean ZOmbie on June 19 at a location and venue yet to be announced.
‘The Korean Zombie’ will get his chance to bounce back following a one-sided beatdown at the hands of Brian Ortega in October last year. Chan Sung Jung wasn’t far from a title shot in the featherweight division at the time.
In this video, Patrick Auger and Drake Riggs react to the Korean Zombie vs. Dan Ige fight announcement. Auger and Riggs comment that this booking is a little “odd” but it’s hard not to be excited for what should be an exciting scrap.
