UFC officials have announced that former featherweight title challenger Chang Sung Jung a.k.a. “The Korean Zombie” will return to action on October 4 against TUF alum Akira Corassani. The two will co-main event the UFC Stockholm event that will take place at the Globe Arena in Sweden.
Chan Sung Jung (13-4) has been out of action since his TKO(injury) loss to champion Jose Aldo at UFC 163 in August 2013. Jung has won three consecutive fights with three finishes to earn the shot against Aldo. He’ll be looking to get back on track in a division that has changed drastically since he was last active.
Corassani (12-4, 1NC) is coming off a TKO loss at the hands of Dustin Poirier in his last outing in April. The TUF alum had won three consecutive bouts going into that fight, and will face a tall order in welcoming TKZ back to the octagon in front of his fellow Swedish countrymen.
The UFC Stockholm event will be headlined by the welterweight bout between Gunnar Nelson and Rick Story.
