Chan Sung Jung, better known as “The Korean Zombie,” was on the receiving end of one of the most shocking knockouts in MMA history last November.
It looks like the featherweight has recovered just fine.
‘The Korean Zombie’ is back, UFC
Fighting as a +160 underdog against UFC’s fifth-ranked featherweight Renato Moicano, Jung landed a massive right hook and just kept striking the Brazilian from there.
Moicano immediately went down and took some more shots from Jung before briefly tying him up, but the Zombie kept going until he had the TKO.

“The Korean Zombie” won his seventh Performance of the Night for his efforts, putting him in some pretty strong MMA company.
Jung won Performance of the Night, so he ties Ronda Rousey for the most fight-night bonuses in a fighter's first seven UFC bouts (seven). Jung also joins Rousey and Conor McGregor as the only fighters to receive a bonus in six of their first seven UFC fights. (@ESPNStatsInfo)

That’s a strong comeback for a fighter who was left unconscious at the end of his last fight in a literally last-second KO. Facing Yair Rodriguez at Denver’s UFC Fight Night last November, Jung took an elbow to the head with just a second left in the fight.
The ending earned Knockout of the Year honors, but haunted Jung as he prepared for his next fight.
The MMA world was pretty happy to see Jung back on top, especially a UFC Greenville crowd that was repeatedly chanting “Zombie-Zombie-Zombie!” during the brief fight.
Greenville is apparently Korean Zombie country. They’re loving him over there. Beautiful stuff from TKZ and a great way to rebound from that heartbreaker back in November,
