Dan Ige will be facing one of the most dangerous fighters in the UFC. He takes on Chan Sung Jung at UFC on ESPN 25 this weekend. Dan is ready for a “zombie apocalypse” inside the cage with the “Korean Zombie”.
Dan Ige is coming off an incredible win against Gavin Tucker at UFC Fight Night: Edwards vs. Muhammad. He has an incredible record of 15-3-0 in his professional career. He takes on Chan Sung Jung this weekend who is coming off a loss against TUF coach Brian Ortega. The Korean featherweight has a record of 16-6-0 in his career and has some great highlight fights in his career. Recently, Ige spoke on his fight ahead with MMA Fighting.
“Honestly, from day one, I’ve been preparing for this fight like I’m embracing zombie apocalypse mentality,” Ige told MMA Fighting. “I’m preparing myself every single day for the apocalypse, and the apocalypse is June 19. I’m 100 percent ready for it. I’m ready for it right now. He’s been through a lot of wars, he can take punishment. But there’s a difference, and I really think there’s a difference in my power and the way I can touch someone and put them out. I’ve always known I’ve had that ability. I’ve never gotten to show it except in my last fight.”
Dan Ige says The Korean Zombie can’t take his punishment
Dan Ige has great aggression leading up to this fight. He is aware of all the strength and danger Sung Jung comes with but “50K” feels it is no match to his skills. “If he comes at me and fights me the way he does and wants to brawl the way he does, then he will get knocked out cold,” Ige said. “There’s no what if, can he take my punishment? No, he can’t take my punishment. I’m not going to fight a 50/50 fight with him. It’s going to be a fun fight, but it’s going to be a fun fight for me.”
Ige feels that this fight might be one sided. Jung has some amazing wins over Dustin Poirier and Frankie Edgar. “It may be a war, but it may be a one-sided victory as well, because I’m just 100 percent prepared. I’m ready to go, and I’m going to take it to him.” Both the fighters are on their way to aim for a title shot and will look to get closer.
