Last month, on “Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show,” Jay Park translated for Jung Chan Sung (also known as Korean Zombie), saying, “So he said, it doesn’t matter, [Max] Holloway, [Alex] Volkanovski, or [Brian] Ortega, but Ortega already ducked him one time. So he doesn’t need to fight a fighter that’s ducking him already.”
Following the show, Brian Ortega warned Jay Park in an Instagram comment, saying he would slap him if he saw him.
On March 9, after the UFC 248, a source from Jay Park and Jung Chan Sung’s agency AOMG said, “It is true that Ortega picked a fight, but security quickly pulled [Ortega] away, and the situation was over. Many people are worried, but [Jay Park] was not injured, and there are currently no issues with his health.”
The same day, Jung Chan Sung took to his Instagram to express his anger about the situation.
Jung Chan Sung is the first athlete to sign with AOMG, a hip hop label founded by Jay Park.
