ZST 36 takes place on July 14, 2013 at Differ Ariake in Tokyo, Japan. Riding the surge of popularity in Korean MMA, the event will feature a Korean invasion of its own, a team led by none other than ZST Champ Kang JungMin. Kang’s tumultuous 2-5 career has been spent mostly in Japan where he’s been pitted against some top opponents in a short period and come up short in the cut. He’ll look to have some homeboys backing him in a resurgence to level his stats when he shares the bill with Choi JaeWu and Cho SeongWon.
