Chan Sung Jung vs. Akira Corrasani At UFC Fight Night In Sweden

Its been a year since the Korean Zombie has been in the ring, but Chan Sung Jung is set to return now to face off against Akira Corassani as the co-main event of UFC Fight Night on Oct. 4 in Sweden. Jung injured his shoulder in August 2013 during a title fight against Jose Aldo and has been unable to fight since then. The card will air live on UFC Fight Pass.

Jung has fought only once since 2012, but has racked up quite the highlight reel. He officially became the “Korean Zombie” with a Fight of the Year loss to Garcia four years ago in WEC. Both men took incredible punishment over three rounds of action.

Corassani was born in Sweden and seven of his pro fights have come in his native country. He is coming off a loss to Dustin Poirier in April, but won three in a row before that and seven of his last nine overall.

UFC Fight Night in Sweden is set to be headlined by welterweight contender bout between Gunnar Nelson and Rick Story.
