Chan Sung Jung aka The Korean Zombie keeps fans at the edge of their seats in anticipation. He is known for his relentless striking, breathtaking submissions, and never-back-down mentality, Korean Zombie has made quite a name for himself in the world of MMA.

1. Korean Zombie vs. Leonard Garcia – Twister Finish

The scene was set on March 26, 2011 at UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Davis. What panned out that night was an event to be forever cherished in MMA history. Not only did we witness undying determination and skill from The Korean Zombie, but we also got to observe one of the most dramatic finishes MMA has ever seen.

Leonard Garcia, an accomplished and respected fighter, was up against the Korean Zombie. The match started with intriguing trading shots, but it was in the second round that fans went berserk. The Zombie whisked Garcia to the ground, took back control, and then wrenched out a terrifying submission hold, aptly known as a ‘Twister’. The excruciating spinal lock had Garcia tapping – marking Korean Zombie’s victory.

This finish is still considered one of the most remarkable and rare ones in UFC history. This is primarily because the Twister is an incredibly complex maneuver to pull off in such high-level MMA competitions.

2. Korean Zombie vs. Dustin Poirier – D’arce Choke

On May 15, 2012, at UFC on Fuel TV: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier, we saw another sensational finish from the Zombie. The main event had fans excited, and the action-packed fight didn’t disappoint.

The third round saw Korean Zombie slip in a perfectly executed D’Arce choke, forcing Dustin Poirier, a grappling veteran, to tap out. This finish won him the Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night honors. This was significant because Poirier is known for his solid defenses – yet, the relentless Korean got him to submit, displaying his own grappling prowess.

It’s not about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. The Korean Zombie lives by this mantra, spending every fight proving this point.

3. Korean Zombie vs. Mark Hominick – Knockout in Seven Seconds

Who could forget the famous seven-second knockout at UFC 140? Mark Hominick, a formidable opponent known for his striking abilities, faced off against the Korean Zombie only to be stunned by lightning speed.

As the bout started, both fighters came to the centre of the Octagon. Within seconds, Korean Zombie landed a straight right, sending Hominick to the canvas and finishing the fight in mere seven seconds. Commended for his quick reflexes and precise striking, this fight left an imprint on everyone’s minds, proving the Zombie’s firepower in the stand-up game.

The speed and effectiveness of this finish cemented Korean Zombie’s reputation as a dangerous and unpredictable striker.
