TKZ also broke face (eye orbital) and foot at UFC 163

 

Not only did Chan Sung Jung dislocate his shoulder in a losing effort to Jose Aldo at UFC 163, apparently he also had his face fractured:

While challenger Chan Sung Jung's injury woes seemed apparent, suffering a separated right shoulder in the midst of throwing a punch, it was not his only injury coming out of the bout.

The "Korean Zombie" also suffered a fractured orbital bone during the loss, his manager Brian "Shug" Rhee told FOX Sports.

Orbital bone breaks are often seen in combat sports like MMA and boxing. Treatment and recovery time vary depending on severity. According to Rhee, Jung is expected to visit specialists for both his shoulder and eye by the end of the week, and should have more information about his expected prognosis then.

Update: Apparently Jung also broke his foot in the bout. No wonder they call this guy The Korean Zombie!

"The Korean Zombie" was mobbed by the media upon his return to his home country and he revealed that on top of the separated shoulder and the fractured face, he tells yonhapnews that he also believes he fractured his foot during the bout (pictured above).

I'm starting to like that fight more in hindsight. Aldo starts to get kidney stone and breaks his foot 2 minutes in which eliminates his best weapon. TKZ breaks his orbital and tries his best to keep going after dislocating his shoulder.A couple of warriors who did the best with what they had and had to find new ways to try and keep going. I don't know how anyone couldn't respect them both a ton.

Zombie is right. You gotta shoot him in the dome or lop it off to stop this man.
