An incident involving Chan Sung Jung, his friend Jay Park and Brian Ortega happened in the crowd during the UFC 248 event last weekend.
It has now been revealed that Brian Ortega approached Jung’s friend, Jay Park in the crowd, while Jung was in the toilet. Ortega confronted Park and slapped him in the face with an open palm. A police report has been filed and they are now reportedly dealing with the incident.
Chan Sung Jung, also known as “The Korean Zombie” released a statement on his Instagram addressing the incident at UFC 248. See what he had to say below:
“Last night, you sat 10 meters away from me and Jay Park. For two hours nothing happened, so I thought everything was fine. But you fucking attacked Jay Park while I went to the bathroom. Jay Park is not a professional fighter but a musician. You slapped a civilian who merely helped translate. Even worse, you were sitting there waiting until I would be absent and attacked Jay Park. It was not a fight like real men would do. What you have done is same as a grown up to beat a child. You should have attacked me. If so, I would have not been upset. You are such a coward for slapping a musician not a fighter.” Jung wrote. “If you f*cking planned this to fight me and to use my name because people don’t remember your name anymore, then I congratulate you, it worked. I will fight you and I will knock you out and your fucking face will be bloody. Now, your fucking face stays in my mind and I will fuck you up in the cage. I hope you won’t run away from me again.”
Brian Ortega is yet to comment on his side of the story in this incident. Footage has now surfaced of him being escorted out of the arena. You can watch it below:
At this time there is no known footage of the actual incident happening, but there is a good chance that somebody will have captured it and will release it soon.
