At UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida, Chan Sung Jung shocked Mark Hominick, knocking the former #1 contender out in just 7 seconds. The fast KO officially tied Todd Duffee's KO of Tim Hague for fastest knockout in UFC history. This was the opening PPV bout on UFC 140. Hominick has now lost 2 in a row, while The Korean Zombie is now 2-0 in the UFC.

Even those who picked Jung to win this fight probably didn't see things going down like this. Hominick, the superior technical striker, came in quickly, but left his hands down. With one punch, Jung made him pay for his casual approach, landing a perfect right hand that dropped Mark Hominick mere moments into the fight. Jung jumped on him and finished the fight. Hominick complained afterwards, but it was a fair stoppage as he was out. Shocking victory for Jung, and a real unfortunate loss for Hominick in Canada.

What was the high spot of this fight?

It was literally one punch and ground and pound. I'll pick the punch.

Where do these guys go from here?

Chan Sung Jung has always seemed like something of an attraction fighter, more there for entertaining fights than for actually being a contender. But by stopping Hominick in 7 seconds, especially in Hominick's first fight since going the distance with Jose Aldo, Jung immediately makes a huge name for himself. The Featherweight division is a bit thin at this point, and to be totally honest, if Hatsu Hioki doesn't win big at UFC 144, don't be shocked if Jung is your next challenger for the title.

This is a definite setback for Hominick, but he's still a contender at the top of the division. Hominick has long shown interest in avenging himself against Hioki (who holds 2 wins over Hominick) - maybe now is the time.

Watch it now, later or never?

It has taken you longer to read this sentence than it would to watch the fight. Watch it now.
