The UFC Busan main event was the setting where the promotion’s #6 ranked featherweight, Chan Sung Jung, ran right through the #4 ranked, Frankie Edgar. The Korean Zombie was all over Edgar and was able to TKO the former champ in the opening round. Jung has now won back to back bouts with first round finishes and just might be considered next up for a shot at the title.

Zombie stuffed the initial takedown attempt of Edgar, then delivered a massive punch that wobbled him. Before Edgar could recover, Zombie landed another combo that dazed him. Edgar dropped and Zombie pounced. He took the back and dropped all sorts of strikes to the flattened out former champ. Edgar somehow survived and returned to his feet, but Zombie was right there to piece him up again. Edgar dropped and the referee stepped in to wave off the bout. What a performance!
