I’ll start off by saying I’m not the biggest MMA fan. In fact, the best word to describe me when it comes to MMA is the same word I use to describe many “sports” fans I come across: casual. I know who Anderson Silva, Georges St.-Pierre, and Jon “Bones” Jones are. I also know some of the older guys like Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture, Ken Shamrock, and Royce Gracie. But I wouldn’t be able to give you an in-depth analysis of the sport outside the wrestling component.
However, tonight’s UFC main event really caught my eye. Why? Well there was a Korean guy named Chan Sung Jung fighting. Now being Asian, any Asian athlete that comes around I take notice. Especially if he’s Korean (but I’m not a nationalistic fanatic who blindly roots for these guys…they have to be good or no mas). And especially with a nickname like “The Korean Zombie.”
