Chan Sung Jung Posts Statement, Says he Doesn’t Recall Rounds 3,4 & 5
By FCF Staff
Following his loss to Brian Ortega at UFC Fight Island 6 Saturday, Chan Sung Jung is reporting he doesn’t recall more than half of the fight.
Jung, who lost the bout via a clear cut decision, was dropped in round by a spinning elbow from Ortega. After the bout, the South Korean fighter shared out the statement below (translations via MMA Mania).
“I have no memory of Rounds 3, 4, 5. It’s fascinating to watch myself fight during the rounds I can’t remember, haha.”
“When I lose a match, I have to analyze why I lost,” Jung continued. “Ortega fought in southpaw stance a lot and when facing southpaw, I was supposed to bait him in but I was a stupid idiot for getting caught by that elbow. Ortega fought extremely well.. And right now, I’m just completely embarrassed / ashamed of myself. But I really want to thank you guys for rooting for me and I’m really sorry.”
The 33-year-old Jung (16-6) had won two straight prior to facing Ortega (15-1).
