Jung Shows Technical Side in UFC Fight Night Win

Korean Zombie Dan Ige

Chan Sung Jung didn't need to live up to his nickname of "The Korean Zombie" Saturday night, instead fighting smart and taking an easy decision victory over Dan Ige in the main event of UFC on ESPN 25 from Las Vegas. Typically known for his inhuman ability to absorb punishment in brawls, Jung showed his maturity against Ige mixing solid striking with sharp takedowns and then controlling his featherweight opponent on the mat for prolonged periods.

After a somewhat slow-paced first round, Jung briefly dropped Ige with a big right hand to open the second. He started fast again in the third catching Ige with a beautifully timed leg tackle, eventually taking his back and sinking in a body triangle to tie him up for most of the round. Jung had the timing again in the fourth as he took Ige down off a caught roundhouse kick. Ige landed some stiff shots to open the final round but Jung got him to the mat once more taking Ige's back and locking in the body triangle to ride him out till the end of the fight.
