One week after returning to Seattle for the second time in eight months, the UFC heads back to Brazil for the fourth time this year, bringing a 12-fight event headlined by a featherweight championship bout between Jose Aldo and "The Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung to the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.
Jose Aldo (22-1-0) vs. Chan Sung Jung (13-3-0)
