Mixed martial arts has a plenty of Pitbulls and Assassins, but only one Korean Zombie. The nickname is so distinctive that nowhere on the poster for Saturday's UFC 163 will you find Chan Sung Jung's actual name.

"I prefer it that way," Jung told MMAJunkie's Ben Fowlkes. "I think it's the best in MMA."

"It's very important to me to put on exciting fights. I like that fighting style and I want to entertain the fans as much as possible. But winning is obviously the most important thing."

"A lot of how I fight is instinctual. Especially in that first Garcia fight, I fought on my instincts, what people describe as the zombie style. After the George Roop fight, I did a lot of thinking about my fighting style. For this fight as well, I've thought a lot about how it's going to unfold. I don't want to give too much away, but I think I've changed."

What do you think UG? Is The Korean Zombie the best nickname in MMA? And how do you think it is going to go Saturday night?

korean zombie is def top 3 mma nicknames

 

 

there was some dude whose nickname was "the bathroom" bc he got into a 3 some in a bathroom after winning his first fight or something

 

 

i used to like when varner was called "the worm"

 

and i get a chuckle out of nicknames that describe how handsome or good looking the fighter is

 

"el guapo", "handsome" wiman, etc

Hmm, hard to pick a best nickname although Korean Zombie has to be up there with the best.

Some of the best in MMA -
"The Spider" , "Shogun" , "The prodigy",

Shogun IMO because no one even calls him by his real name either.

Also if any one actually looks up the meaning and position of power the shogun had in Japan it's pretty cool Phone Post 3.0

The Last emperor, Rampage, Mayhem, Shogun...All great names but Mayhem, Rampage and Fedor have fallen off the grid whilst Shogun describes Rua not at all. I'll currently concede Korean Zombie has the best name in MMA.

It's true most nick names are meant to sound cool rather than have true meaning. Sort of like with all the "Pitbulls" There's only one pitbull in MMA that's Patricio.

Cruz's nickname sounds like a bad gay porn video "the dominator" or Kenflo and J-Lau are just better unsaid. Rory naming himself Ares is awful too. Scarface for Aldo is just too tacky. Why is Lyoto a dragon? Reminds me more of a Mantis. Tito named himself the peoples Champion, who is he...The Rock? Mousasi is a dreamcatcher? I guess that's supposed to mean he crushes dreams but the native american artifact is supposed to bring good will...So on the contrary. George "in no rush" st. piere? C'mon. Chris "the all american" weidman just makes me think how badly they want to push his imagine as a white american champion or something. Young Assassin, California Kid and Baby Face Assassin...Are getting old.

Okay I'll stop.

Unfortunately, the only reason it doesn't say his real name is because "Korean Zombie" written on the poster will grab more attention than "Chan Sung Jung". Phone Post 3.0
