“Korean Zombie” Jung vs. George Roop, Leonard Garcia vs. Mark Hominick likely for WEC 51

While many fans that had the pleasure to witness one of the greatest fights put on in recent memory between “The Korean Zombie” Chang Sung Jung and Leonard Garcia at WEC 48 had anticipated an immediate rematch between the pair, it now looks likely that that particular fight will have to wait.

It now looks likely that “The Korean Zombie” will in fact face off with George Roop at WEC 51, while Garcia is expected to face off with Mark Hominick at the same event according to recent reports at MMAWeekly.

WEC 51 is expected to take place on September 8 from the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado while airing live on Versus.

Nothing has been announced yet, but the card is expected to be headlined by a featherweight title bout between Jose Aldo and Manny Gamburyan.

Garcia recently edged out Jung via narrow split decision in a wild slugfest widely considered to be the front-runnner for “Fight of the Year” honors, while Roop went to a draw with Garcia in his previous outing, and Hominick is looking for his fourth consecutive victory.

  • Rece Rock says:

    It would be great if both Jung & Garcia get a win and then rematch…

  • Angry Mike says:

    I think it’s a great idea for them to fight different opponents. Both of them fight with abandon, and that means there will be two good fights rather than just one.

    By the way, I never heard how WEC’s ppv went. As far as I know, they haven’t done one since. Are they running any in the future? What are the rumors?

  • Hohlraum says:

    Garcia didn’t edge out anyone. How many times did Jung literally drop him against the cage? That as a total gift by the judges and total BS.
