Yair Rodriguez vs. Chan Sung Jung was already a Fight of the Year candidate. Then, with one second left on the clock…
Life can change just that quickly, with only 2 seconds left on the 25 Minute match, between two talented Featherweight fighters. As Zombie looking to clearly emerge victorious, to be met with an unorthodox reverse elbow from a fatigued Rodriguez to knock-out Korean Zombie into oblivion; with sheer elegance and respect for one another — demolishing Jung’s winning score card by putting him to sleep as Rodriguez’s elbow made contact with Zombie’s jaw from below.
2 Seconds…was all that was left on the clock.
The crowd watched as history was made, and one of the greatest fights in recent UFC history would emerge.
A lesson to the unsuspecting viewers, of just how quickly luck can change.
Within a matter of mere seconds remaining on the clock; The seemingly victorious fighter Chan Sung Jung, fighting what all his heart and soul had to contribute; complimented by his graceful sportsmanship, eloquent respect between the opponents, and razor sharp instincts within the Octagon would be rocked by an elbow no one could’ve expected — not even the cornermen or the judges, as they were getting ready to reveal their decision from the score card; to find Zombie had just been put to sleep by a visibly tired and fatigued Rodriguez; history was made and a reminder sent shockwaves from within the Octagon to the rest of the viewers — Life is nothing but unexpected blows, unpredictable moments of sheer harmony.
Much respect to Chan Sung Jung and the victorious Yair Rodriguez.
