'Korean Zombie' offers simple callout of Frankie Edgar after UFC Fight Night 128

Chan Sung Jung, one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC featherweight division, is apparently ready to get back to work, and he knows exactly whom he wants next.Jung (14-4 MMA, 4-1 UFC) has been largely off the radar since his knockout win over Dennis Bermudez at UFC Fight Night 104 in February 2017. He was supposed to fight Ricardo Lamas at UFC 214 in July, but hesuffered a knee injury and was forced to withdraw from the event.“The Korean Zombie” has been quietly rehabilitating since then. However, after Frankie Edgar (23-6-1 MMA, 17-6-1 UFC) scored a unanimous-decision win over Cub Swanson in Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 128 co-headliner, Jung emerged on social media with a message for “The Answer” (via Instagram):
@frankieedgar I want to fight with you. #ufcA post shared by (@koreanzombiemma) on Apr 22, 2018 at 7:09am PDT

Edgar, 36, returned to the win column following a knockout loss to Brian Ortega at UFC 222 in March. He said afterward that he wants a title shot against the winner of July’s UFC 226 title fight between champ Max Holloway and Ortega, but it remains to be seen if he will get that opportunity.Jung is a former title challenger himself, but he’s been extremely inactive in recent years with just one fight since fighting then-champion Jose Aldo for the gold at UFC 163 in August 2013. If he can stay healthy, though, a fight with Edgar would be a prominent one in the 145-pound weight class.For complete coverage of UFC Fight Night 128, check out the UFC Events section of the site.
