The Korean Zombie headlines UFC return to Houston


The UFC’s Super Bowl weekend event in Houston on Feb. 4 will be an explosive one, with the return of a featherweight superstar highlighting the card at Toyota Center.

In the UFC Fight Night main event, which airs live on FS1, “The Korean Zombie,” Chan Sung Jung, makes his first start since August 2013, as he returns from military service to face fellow 145-pound standout Dennis Bermudez.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 6.

The UFC announced seven more bouts for the event on Saturday, highlighted by a co-main event featuring Mexican phenom Alexa Grasso against strawweight veteran Felice Herrig.

Also slated for the main card are bouts in the lightweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions, with Abel Trujillo facing Evan Dunham, Jan Blachowicz squaring off against Ovince Saint Preux, and Justin Ledet taking on newcomer Dmitry Sosnovskiy

In prelim action, heavyweight prospects Curtis Blaydes and Adam Milstead collide, lightweight prospects Johnny Case and James Vick meet in an intriguing 155-pound bout, and featherweights Chris Gruetzemacher and Chas Skelly face off.
