Jung Chan Sung (born March 17, 1987) is a South-Korean professional mixed martial arts fighter. He made his professional début in June 2007 and in December the same year he won a lightweight tournament arranged by Pancrase Korea. In 2008 he won both his fights for Japanese promotion Deep. He then entered the 2009 Sengoku Featherweight Grand-Prix where he won his first-round fight but ended up getting eliminated from the tournament by the eventual winner Masanori Kanehara. His latest fight was a reserve-bout for the tournament at Sengoku 9.



Jung trained Hapkido before joining a kickboxing-gym at 18-years-old.[2] In June 2007 he won a Sambo tournament arranged by the Korean Sambo Association, and in December the same year he won the lightweight division of the Pancrase Korea Neo-Blood Tournament after defeating fellow South Koreans Yoo In Seok and Lee Hyung Geol.[2][3] In May the next year he participated in and won KOREA-FC's 8-man MMA tournament contested at 65kg.[2]

On August 16, 2008 he defeated Michihiro Omigawa at Deep - Gladiator by unanimous decision. His next fight was against Fanjin Son at Deep - 39 Impact where he won by KO after 17 seconds.[3]



Jung then entered the 2009 Sengoku Featherweight Grand-Prix and was matched up with Shintaro Ishiwatari in his first-round fight at Sengoku 7.[4] After slugging it out on the feet with Jung dropping Ishiwatari once, Jung hit Ishiwatari with a right hand forcing him to give up his back. From there Jung sunk in a rear naked choke forcing Ishiwatari to submit at 4:29 of the first round.[5] In his second-round fight at Sengoku 8 on May 2, 2009, he lost via unanimous decision to Masanori Kanehara officially eliminating him from the tournament.[6] On June 7, 2009, it was announced Jung would face American Matt Jaggers at Sengoku 9 in a reserve bout for the tournament with the winner stepping in as a replacement should some of the remaining fighters be unable to continue.[7] Jung ended up winning the fight by triangle choke submission at 1:25 of the second round, but was not required to step in as a replacement.[8]
