The Korean Zombie has delivered a scathing message to Brian Ortega.

Following UFC 248 on Saturday night, Dana White revealed that the pair had gotten into a fight in the crowd. Many initially believed Zombie and Ortega got physical with each other.

However, it was later reported that once Zombie went to the bathroom, Ortega went up to his friend and musician Jay Park and slapped him. Ortega’s issue was with Park’s translation of Zombie’s previous comments about him.

“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 f*cking 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.

“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 f*cking face will be bloody. Now, your f*cking face stays in my mind and I will f*ck you up in the cage. I hope you won’t run away from me again.”
