Alexander Volkanovski knocks out The Korean Zombie

Alexander Volkanovski defeated “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung.

In the UFC 273 main event, the champion stopped Jung (17-7 MMA, 7-4 UFC) with strikes at 0:45 of Round 4 to retain his featherweight title. The bout took place at Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla.

From beginning to end, Volkanovksi showed why he wears the belt. His leg kicks were strong and continually threw Jung off-balance. His boxing was crisp, and dropped and rocked Jung multiple times in the opening three rounds. The damage piled and piled, until it caught referee Herb Dean’s attention at the end of Round 3.

Prior to Round 4, Dean had the cageside physician enter the fighting surface to examine Jung, who was swollen, bleeding and scraped. The doctor gave a quick glance and approval for the fight to continue. However, it didn’t last long thereafter.
