    "The UFC is on a signing spree of South Korean fighters.

    Korean Top Team’s Jung Da-Un and Park Jun-Yong are the latest to put pen to paper on a UFC contract. That makes it four Korean fighters added to the roster in the last month."

    Jung Da-Un (11-2) trains out of Korean Top team, has fought outside of his homeland the last two years, and is already 2-0 in 2019. Also, a rare Asian 205lber. Tapology Profile

    Park Jun-Yong (10-3) is another KTT fighter who, while having mixed results over the first three years of his career, is currently on a seven fight winning streak. Tapology Profile

    Have they served their mandatory 2 yr hitch in the army yet? I hate that shit cutting into the prime of these guy’s careers. You get hyped up then...zilch.

    It’s like sitting out a 2 yr PED ban, without the cheater stigma. It sucks for the fighter, and us fans. Currently dealing with DHC being out.

    Park may hhave, based on age and when his career started. Jung hwoever is too young to have completed it given his fight timeline.

    Good. The UFC should go back to South Korea later this year. It's been too long.

    looked at his pic and said "this kid's too fat and pudgy for 205" but then I saw his height.

    Thank goodness, I can’t be the only one that wants alot more Asians (Chinese, Pinoy, Japanese, Korean) fighters in the mix. I’m still pulling for UFCs first Asian champion!
