Chan Sung Jung, better known as “The Korean Zombie” to UFC fans has been sidelined from mixed martial arts for the next two years to finish his mandatory military service (required of South Korean male citizens).
The information was confirmed by Jung’s manager Brian Rhee.
“He feels bad for his fans and thankful to the UFC, Dana and the Ferttitas for letting him be a professional fighter,” Rhee said. “He’s going to rehab, train and comeback stronger than ever after the end of the 2 years!”
Jung, 27, is scheduled to report to basic training on October 20.
