Fight fans will regrettably have to wait a bit more time to see The Korean Zombie back in action. In accordance with MMA-in-Asia. Com, who confirmed the information with the fighter’s manager, Chan Sung Jung re-injured his shoulder and was forced to pull from his scheduled fight against Akira Corassani, that was set to occur October 4 at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. Jung has not fought since injuring his shoulder into his title fight against UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo back at UFC 163. He had surgery on his shoulder and has been expected to make his comeback this autumn after over a year from the cage, but according to the post at MMA-in-Asia, Jung re-injured exactly the exact same shoulder through his training camp for Corassani. According to the article, Jung doesn’t have structural damage and is to be re-evaluated by a doctor at a month. Jung is one of the most exciting fighters in the sport pound-for-pound bar none, but it seems like accidents have taken their toll on him and now it’s uncertain if he’ll ever have the ability to fight again at precisely the exact same grade he did before each of his injuries. At one stage, Jung was on a three-fight win series at the UFC featherweight branch with successes over Dustin Poirier, Mark Hominick and Leonard Garcia, shooting the trifecta of Battle of the Night, Knockout of the evening and Submission of the Night at the process, but since the triumph over Poirier in May 2012 Jung has fought just 1 time, dropping to Aldo via fourth-round TKO at UFC 163, and at this stage it doesn’t look like he will step into the cage until 2015. It is very disappointing news for lovers of this Korean Zombie everywhere, but the 27-year-old South Korean has only hit some sort of low point in his profession and he can bounce back from it earlier rather than later. As for who’ll confront Corassani now in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 53, it is really tough to say at this time, but some choices include Jeremy Stephens, Clay Guida, and Diego Brandao, three”title” fighters looking to bounce back from losses and that are available to combat. Although Corassani isn’t a fantastic fighter, he’s quite exciting and the UFC retains giving him high profile matchups, i.e. Jung, Poirier. But we will see what UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby has up his sleeve for his replacement competition for UFC Fight Night 53 — just hopefully whoever he picks is someone who will put on as fun of a show since the Zombie could have.
