The Korean Zombie Desperately Protects His Shoulder From Aldo!

The main event of the night saw Jose Aldo place his Featherweight Championship and 15 fight win streak on the line against the dynamic Chan-Sung Jung, more popularly known as “The Korean Zombie.” Aldo has looked spectacular throughout his UFC title reign, but he faced a unique challenge in a fighter that earned Submission of the Year, Fight of the Year, and tied the record for fastest knockout in UFC history in his three fights since joining the promotion. The bout began with tentative striking exchanges as each fighter looked to establish his range. Surprisingly, Aldo looked for several takedowns in the middle rounds despite his opponent’s submission prowess and his own success on the feet. Jung periodically connected with flurries of punch combinations and flying knee attempts, but Aldo landed a higher volume of significant strikes. Aldo chose not to employ his usual regimen of heavy leg kicks, but ultimately the result was the same. Midway through the fourth round the Korean Zombie separated his should while throwing a powerful overhand right. A succession of high kicks to the injured shoulder dropped the challenger, and Aldo followed them up with several more strikes on the ground to finish the fight and retain his title. The champion moves to 5-0 in the UFC, and looks to continue his reign over the Featherweight division.

Winner: Jose Aldo, 4th Round TKO
