The Korean Zombie Calls Brian Ortega a ‘Coward’ for Slapping the Rapper

Ortega and the Korean Zombie were scheduled to fight at UFC Fight Night: Busan in December of 2019, but Ortega pulled out due to injury.

The Korean Zombie’s caption reads, “Last night, you sat 10 meters away from me and Jay Park. For two hours nothing happened, so I thought everything was fine. But you f**king attacked Jay Park while I went to the bathroom. Jay Park is not a professional fighter but a musician. You slapped a civilian who merely helped translate. Even worse, you were sitting there waiting until I would be absent and attacked Jay Park. It was not a fight like real men would do.”

The post continued, “What you have done is same as a grown up to beat a child. You should have attacked me. If so, I would have not been upset. You are such a coward for slapping a musician not a fighter. If you f**king planned this to fight me and to use my name because people don’t remember your name anymore, then I congratulate you, it worked. I will fight you and I will knock you out and your f**king face will be bloody. Now, your f**king face stays in my mind and I will f**k you up in the cage. I hope you won’t run away from me again.”

It’s Been Reported That  a Police Report Was Filed

According to a statement that The Korean Zombie’s manager, Jason House, sent to MMA Junkie, “Police reports were filed immediately after the incident occurred and now it’s a matter for law enforcement officials to handle.”

Before UFC 248, both Ortega and Jung were told by the promotion to be respectful and to steer clear of any confrontations.
