A late change has been made to the UFC Fight Night 24 card in Seattle, but it will result in another epic rematch that just about everyone has been waiting for.
Nam Phan suffered an injury in training so stepping in to replace him against Leonard Garcia will be the popular “Korean Zombie,” Chan Sung Jung.
The UFC announced the change on Wednesday.
Jung and Garcia put on what most considered the best fight of 2010 with their three-round epic in April, which ended with Garcia coming out on top by split decision.
The pair will now rematch with Jung possibly fighting for his UFC future after back-to-back losses closed out his time in the WEC. Jung has made a change to his training camp and is now working with Urijah Faber’s Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, Calif.
The bout between Garcia and Jung will remain on the televised portion of the Seattle card.
