Chan Sung Jung lived up to his nickname, “The Korean Zombie,” when he tried to fight through a dislocated shoulder earlier this month vs. Jose Aldo at UFC 163.
Jung, who also suffered a fractured orbital and broken foot during the fight, is headed for the sidelines for upwards of a year, according to a report by FOX Sports.
It appears Jung (13-4) will be forced to undergo surgery for both his shoulder and eye injuries. Prior to facing Aldo, he was away from action for 15 months for surgery on his other shoulder.
Jung has expressed interest in a rematch with Aldo, who himself suffered several injuries in the grueling fight.
