Chan Sung (The Korean Zombie) Jung suffered a gruesome shoulder injury in the main event of UFC 163 in Rio de Janeiro Saturday, coming up short in his bid to dethrone featherweight champ Jose (Scarface) Aldo.

In the fourth round, the South Korean standout threw an overhand right, which caused his shoulder to visibly separate. Jung immediately attempted to pop it back in, but was wrestled to the mat. Aldo then delivered a series of punches, forcing referee Herb Dean to wave off the fight.

Aldo admitted he knew the challenger was injured before taking him to the canvas.

“Yes, I did see that he separated his shoulder,” Aldo said through translator Derek Lee. “So I tried to kick him, put him down on the ground and deliver some ground-and-pound.”

With his fifth UFC title defence in the books, Aldo said he has yet to decide whether or not to remain at 145 pounds.

“I really don't know,” Aldo replied. “I just work for the UFC. So whoever just comes (next).”
