Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contender Chan Sung Jung is finally back with the world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion, following a couple of years playing soldier, and he wants to get his career on the fast track to a 145-pound title shot.
And the best way to accomplish that goal is by knocking off contending featherweights, starting with longtime veteran Ricardo Lamas, who can either battle “Korean Zombie” in the main event of an upcoming fight card, or get stuck on the FOX Sports 1 “Prelims.” His words: Fight undercard with someone else or fight me in the main event in August. Your call. @RicardoLamasMMA @bjpenndotcom — Chan Sung Jung (@KoreanZombieMMA) March 20, 2017 Can’t get much clearer than that. Jung (14-4) got back to his winning ways by smashing Dennis Bermudez at UFC Fight Night 104 just last month (more on that here). Lamas (17-5), meanwhile, was abandoned by Frankie Edgar — by way of Yair Rodriguez — after choking out Charles Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 98 last November. This potential showdown doing anything for you?
