Their first fight was an all time classic. The second was an exhibition in dominance by Chan Sung Jung "The Korean Zombie" over Leonard Garcia. Jung dominated the fight over two rounds both standing and on the ground and then ended the fight with a neck crank submission called "the Twister" in MMA at 3:59 of the second round.

The fight opened the Spike TV broadcast of UFC Fight Night 24 from Seattle, Washington. The card is headlined by Antonio Rogerio Nogeira vs Phil Davis.

It was the first time the hold had been successfully applied for a finish in UFC history although it's been seen in Japanese MMA before.
