With Pettis injured, TKZ steps in to fight Aldo at UFC 162


The Korean Zombie, Chan Sung Jung, was originally scheduled to fight Jose Aldo for his featherweight title, but an injury pushed the opportunity back and temporarily out of reach. Aldo was scheduled to defend at UFC 163 versus Anthony Pettis, but today it was announced that Pettis was injured and would be unable to complete. Unfortunate for Pettis, but now Jung will get his UFC title shot:

Pettis hurt his knee, Korean Zombie will now face Jose Aldo for the title on the Aug card in Rio Brazil.

Fair enough. Apologies for the half-wit comment and calling you stupid. I imagine there are people on here who would be serious writing something like that, but yes I was completely joking. I'll be more careful in the future.

Did you quote the wrong post you were replying to? Because everything you stated has nothing to do with what I originally wrote.

I'm sick of these cancelled fights! I love TKZ and I'm happy he's got his shot but it's spoiled 1 of the best fights for a long time in Pettis Aldo and the Silva Weidman card was awesome with TKZ Lamas on the undercard....gutted!
