Shinya Aokiís opponent on NYE has finally been announced. Facing him will be Korean 2000 Olympic Silver Medalist in Judo, Jung Bukyung. I donít know much about Jung but he lost to Tadahiro Nomura (1996, 2000 and 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist) in the finals of the Olympics, so a silver medal isnít bad considering such opposition. He is 173 cm tall and 29 years old.

Some additional information on Jung

Titles:

1999 & 2003 Asian Judo Championships Gold Medalist
2004 A-Tournament (World Cup) Gold Medalist
Grand Prix Austria 2000 (World Cup) Silver Medalist
2001 World Masters (World Cup) 3rd Place

Road to the Finals at the 2000 Olympics:

Jung Bu-Kyung defeated N. Khergiani by Ippon
Jung Bu-Kyung defeated Narmandakh by Ippon
Jung Bu-Kyung defeated Donbay by Ippon
Jung Bu-Kyung defeated Mukhtarov by Yusei-Gachi

Ippon - If an opponent executes a powerful yet fully controlled throw, he can win a match outright (by ippon) on the basis that he has displayed sufficient superiority.

Yusei-Gachi - Win by Superiority (decision).

ďFunĒ Facts:

UFC fighter Michihiro Omigawa placed 5th in the same weight category as Jung in the 2003 Asian Championships.

staan wel echt goede namen in de line up... En shinya moet deze partij wel kunnen winnen want voor zover ik hier uit haal heeft die tegenstander nog geen MMA ervaring (iig in de ring).
