The injury bug continues to impair the mixed martial arts career of Chan Sung Jung.
On Tuesday, Sherdog.com confirmed with a source close to the fight that another shoulder injury has forced “The Korean Zombie” out of his UFC Fight Night “Nelson vs. Story” co-main event against Akira Corassani. The Ultimate Fighting Championship has not yet confirmed the injury.
The card is set to take place at Globe Arena in Stockholm. The UFC Fight Pass-streamed event is headlined by a welterweight showdown between Gunnar Nelson and Rick Story.
Jung has already been on the shelf with a shoulder ailment for the last 14-months following a loss at UFC 163 against featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Prior to the technical knockout defeat, the 27-year-old had been victorious in bouts against Leonard Garcia, Mark Hominick and Dustin Poirier.
