UFC Busan: Korean Zombie calls out champ Volkanovski following TKO of Frankie Edgar

Chan Sung Jung has called for a title fight against Alexander Volkanovski following his TKO win over Frankie Edgar at UFC Busan.

Fresh off his first-round dismantling of Frankie Edgar at UFC Fight Night 165, Chan Sung Jung — better known as Korean Zombie — took to the mic to call out newly-crowned UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski.

“I want Volkanovski,” Zombie said in his UFC Fight Night post-fight interview at Sajik Arena in Busan, South Korea.

Volkanovski (21-1 MMA) outclassed Max Holloway last weekend at UFC 245, successfully dethroning the long-reigning featherweight champ and extending his UFC win streak to 8-0.

Jung, 32, dropped Edgar several times before eventually finishing the former UFC lightweight champion with a barrage of ground-and-pound, earning his highest-profile win to date. The mixed martial arts fan favorite also holds notable stoppage wins over Dustin Poirier and Renato Moicano, and is currently ranked #6 in the UFC featherweight rankings. Jung fought for the featherweight title against Jose Aldo back in 2013 Aldo but lost the bout via fourth-round TKO.
