Boom, and like that another shakeup to the title picture has come down upon our heads with great force. Anthony Pettis has injured his knee, and has been forced out of his fight with Jose Aldo in RIo at UFC 163. In his place stumbles the Korean Zombie, he himself supposed to fight Ricardo Lamas at UFC 162. The last time we saw TKZ he was in the fight of the night and won submission of the night when he took out Dustin Poirier with a D’arce choke on UFC on Fuel TV: Poirier vs. The Korean Zombie.
Now we’re here, and Ricardo Lamas is still on the outside looking in, unfortunately. The Korean Zombie will have nearly 15 months of ring rust when he steps in to face the reigning featherweight champion, and owner of a fifteen fight win streak in Jose Aldo.
So how will this pan out? Well, we the fans still get an awesome fight, but Pettis was a legit threat to Aldo, Chan Sung Jung is more than likely just another victim. It should be fun to watch though.
