It will go do down as one of the best fights of 2018 and a surefire candidate for knockout of the year, but there are no hard feelings between Yair Rodridguez and the ‘Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung-Jung after their epic UFC Denver main event.
A closely contested battle throughout, Rodriguez earned last-second win with a stunning elbow KO at 4.59 of the fifth round. It was the latest knockout win in the 25-year history of the UFC (delivered on its anniversary, no less) and also one of the most memorable.
Both fighters were transferred to a nearby medical facility after their classic battle where, of course, they once again crossed paths with the South Korean posting a photo of them hand-in-hand to social media.
“My pride is really bad .. I sell a lot .. Haha .. Still .. I love Taekwondo and I always express my congratulations to my young friend who is always polite. This match should be so satisfying. It’s really ok now! Thanks everyone!” he wrote.
