Nam Phan forced to pull out of UFN 24 rematch with Leonard Garcia, Chan Sung Jung steps in

TUF 12 cast member, Nam Phan will have to wait a little longer to get his rematch with Leonard Garcia, after he was forced to pull out of his UFC Fight Night 24 rematch in Seattle, Washington on March 26th.

Now Stepping in will be Korean star, Chan Sung Jung who took on Garcia at WEC 48 last April and between them put on one of the greatest fights ever seen in mixed martial arts history. The change was officially announced by the UFC earlier today.

Jung lost the fight to Garcia via a very controversial split decision before getting knocked out by George Roop on the WEC 51 card later that year. Garcia was last seen taking on Phan on the season twelve finale of the reality show, earning himself another controversial decision win to prove he’s perhaps the luckiest fighter in MMA today, well in the judges eyes anyhow…
