Quote :
Chan Sung Jung has not entered the Octagon in more than a year. His fans are going to have to wait even longer to see him compete again.

"The Korean Zombie" will be taking two years off from the UFC to rehab injuries and enlist in South Korea's military, Jung announced on social media Monday. South Korean men are required to serve two years. Jung will not see any field combat, instead working out of an office, according to MMAjunkie.

Jung (13-4) has not fought since falling to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo by TKO in August 2013. He badly injured his shoulder in that bout. The 27-year-old is ranked No. 6 among UFC featherweight contenders, but will likely be removed from the rankings on account of his inactivity. Jung is known as one of the most exciting fighters in the organization, racking up five fight-night bonuses in six fights for the UFC and WEC.

"The Zombie" was supposed to return against Akira Corassani at UFC Fight Night on Fight Pass earlier this month in Sweden, but had to withdraw because of an injury. UFC president Dana White said recently that the UFC would be coming to South Korea for the first time in 2015, but it doesn't look like Jung will be a part of that event as an active fighter.
