‘The Korean Zombie’ returns at Super Bowl weekend card in Houston
The UFC will return to Houston less than 24 hours away from the Super Bowl with a card on February 4 headlined by “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung as he fights for the first time in over three years.
Jung will face Dennis Bermudez in the main event on the event taking place at the Toyota Center in Houston in a five round battle in the featherweight division.
The show airs live on FS1 with tickets on sale January 6.
Jung has been out of action while serving military duty in his native South Korea, but now he's ready to resume his career after exiting the UFC as one of the top 10 fighters in the 145-pound class.
Top rated strawweight prospect Alexa Grasso will also make her second appearance on the upcoming card in Houston when she takes on veteran fighter Felice Herrig.
Grasso has a ton of hype around her after moving to the UFC from Invicta Fighting Championships and she picked up a win in her debut over Heather Clark in November. She'll have a tough test ahead of her with Herrig, who is fresh off a first round submission victory over Kailin Curran in her last fight.
Hard hitting lightweight Abel Trujillo will also be back in action when he faces Evan Dunham on the card while former title contender Ovince Saint Preux looks to bounce back from a recent loss when he faces Jan Blachowicz.
