True to his nickname, ‘The Korean Zombie’ will rise once again.

One of the most entertaining fighters on the featherweight roster, Chan Sung Jung hasn’t been seen inside a UFC cage for three years but now that his government-mandated military service has been completed, the man they call ‘The Korean Zombie’ is set to resume his UFC career.

Jung will face Dennis Bermudez in a five-round fight in the main event of a Fox Sports 1 card on February 4th in Houston, Texas — less than 24 hours removed from the Super Bowl.

The Korean fighter since an August 2013 loss to José Aldo — his only loss in the UFC through four fights. Jung holds notable victories over the likes of Dustin Poirier and Mark Hominick.

Bermudez, meanwhile, is 2-2 in his last four fights. ‘The Menace’ dropped bouts to Jeremy Stephens and Ricardo Lamas after winning seven straight at 145-pounds. More recently, Bermudez holds decision wins over Tatsuya Kawajiri and Rony Jason.

The card will be co-headlined by a bout between former Invicta champion Alexa Grasso who will take on Felice Herrig, while Ovince St. Preux takes on Jan Blachowicz and Evan Dunham will fight Abel Trujillo.
