Chan Sung Jung aka "The Korean Zombie" came into his UFC 140 bout with Mark Hominick a -400 underdog. That means each dollar bet would recoup 4 dollars. The bookmakers figured that the smooth striking Hominick, fresh off a five round war with champ Jose Aldo at UFC 129 would paste the wild swinging Zombie.
Their one common opponent George Roop -- who shellacked Jung at WEC 51 in 2010 -- lost to Hominick by first round TKO at UFC Fight for the Troops 2. But there's a reason hard-core MMA fans call analysis like that MMAth (MMA math).Fighter A beat Fighter B who beat Fighter C, therefore Fighter A will beat Fighter C sounds reasonable, but it turns out it has virtually no predictive value.
That was all Jung needed to take home the $75,000 UFC 140 Knockout of the Night bonus.
He also tied the all-time record for fastest UFC KO with the seven second KO. Todd Duffee has held that record since UFC 102. Unofficially Duane Ludwig has the record with a four second KO of Jonathan Goulet in 2006 but there was a time-keeping error in that fight that was never made right.
Jung improves to 2-0 in the UFC, after going 0-2 in the WEC (including a very questionable decision loss to Leonard Garcia in the brawl-of-the-century) before the UFC absorbed that organization. His overall record is 12-3.
Hominick drops to 20-10. Coming on the heels of the tragic heart attack death of his coach Sean Tompkins, this loss is a capstone on a difficult year for Hominick.
