Korean Zombie vs. George Roop Slated For WEC 51

A featherweight bout between “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung and George Roop is in the works for WEC 51 in September.

WEC 51, while not officially announced, is scheduled for Sept. 30 at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado.

Both fighters faced Leonard Garcia in their respective last bouts. Jung lost a three-round battle to Garcia on the undercard of WEC 48 that is considered a contender for fight of the year. The fight was considered a major reason why the WEC’s first-ever pay per view event ultimately pulled in over 150,000 buys.

Roop went to a draw with Garcia at WEC 47. He began his career with Zuffa on the eighth season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” ultimately losing to Phillipe Nover in the semi-finals of the show.
