Search Is On For Replacement

Chan Sung Jung, aka "the Korean Zombie", has pulled himself off of the UFC Fight Night Stockholm card after straining his shoulder. The injury is not severe, though he will reportedly need at least four weeks of rehab before he can begin training once again.

This leaves a hole in the card, as Chan Sung Jung vs Akira Corassani was going to serve as the event's co-main event. Here is how the card now looks following the injury to the "Korean Zombie":

Gunnar Nelson vs Rick Story
Akira Corassani vs ?
Ilir Latifi vs Jan Blachowicz
Niklas Backstrom vs Mike Wilkinson

Corassani, who was born in Lund, Sweden, will almost certainly remain on the card due to the fact that he was born in Sweden and has a large following in the country.


Chan Sung Jung re-injured the same shoulder that he separated during his fight against Jose Aldo. Sung Jung has been out of action since that fight in August of 2013, though he is still expected to make his return to the Octagon before the year is out. UFC fans are certainly excited to hear that, as "the Korean Zombie" has turned in some of the most exciting performances since he entered the promotion in March of 2011.
