That's just fine with Chan Sung Jung.
"The Korean Zombie" rose from his digital grave in the wake of the FOX Sports 1 festivities, asking telling Swanson to step up and prove his mettle in a 145-pound showdown read news >>

Injury replacement Ediane Gomes points out an inaccurate conclusion one could arrive at from reading her Invicta FC 3 opponent Katalina Malungahu's resume.
Malungahu has two professional fights, whereas she has seven. But, she said, that doesn't mean she has an edge in experience.
"Here in the States one normally pursues an amateur career before going pro," featherweight Gomes told MMAjunkie.com. "In Brazil, there's no such option. We have to start pro. So it evens out."
