After delivering one of the top fights of 2010 in his WEC debut, “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung is set to return at September’s WEC 51 against fellow featherweight George Roop, according to MMA Weekly.
Jung (10-2) was in a three-round slugfest with Leonard Garcia at April’s WEC 48, but dropped a controversial split decision for just his second career loss.
A castmember on The Ultimate Fighter 8, Roop (10-6-1) went 1-2 in the UFC and has gone 0-1-1 in the WEC, dropping a unanimous decision to Eddie Wineland in January before fighting to a draw against Garcia in March.
WEC 51 takes place on September 30 at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado, with the Versus-televised WEC 51 fight card expected to be headlined by featherweight champ Jose Aldo vs. Manny Gamburyan.
