Fight fans will regrettably have to wait a bit longer to see The Korean Zombie back in action. According to MMA-in-Asia. Com, who confirmed the news with all the fighter’s manager, Chan Sung Jung re-injured his shoulder and has been forced to pull from his scheduled fight against Akira Corassani, that had been set to take place October 4 at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. Jung hasn’t fought since injuring his shoulder into his title fight against UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo back in UFC 163. He had surgery on his shoulder and was 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 during his coaching camp for Corassani. According to the article, Jung has no structural damage and is to be re-evaluated by a physician at a month. Jung is one of the most exciting fighters in the game pound-for-pound bar none, but it seems like accidents have taken their toll upon him and now it is uncertain if he will ever have the ability to fight again at the exact same grade he did before each of his injuries. At one point, Jung was on a three-fight win streak 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 Entry of the Night at the process, but because the triumph over Poirier in May 2012 Jung has fought only 1 time, losing to Aldo through fourth-round TKO in UFC 163, and at this point it does not look like he’ll step into the cage again until 2015. It is very disappointing news for fans of The Korean Zombie anyplace, but hopefully the 27-year-old South Korean has hit some sort of low point in his profession and he will bounce back from it sooner instead of later. As for who will face Corassani now in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 53, it is really hard 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 who are available to combat. Although Corassani is not a fantastic fighter, he is quite exciting and the UFC keeps 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 — only hopefully whoever he chooses is somebody who will put on as fun of a show as the Zombie would have.
