"Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung has called out Michihiro Omigawa on his blog, accusing the Yoshida Dojo fighter of being a "coward" after Omigawa's recent comments about why he lost his featherweight debut to Jung in 2008. "He's such a coward for not coming to the WEC, where there are (the) best athletes," Jung writes. "Hope he comes to WEC and fight me.
