All UFC athletes are likely to suffer injuries in training, but it’s always a shame when the main event loses one of its stars. This time, Anthony Pettis, who was scheduled to face Jose Aldo at UFC 163 for the featherweight UFC title. In Pettis’ place will be Chan Sung Jung.
The announcement of the injury was made by President Dana White through his twitter account, on Friday afternoon. In the message, White said it was a knee injury that put Pettis out of the fight.
Jung (13-3) is a black belt in taekwondo and blue in Jiu-Jitsu. The “Korean Zombie” has three consecutive wins in the UFC, two by submission, the first in his UFC debut, slapping a twister on Leonard Garcia.
And you, the reader, do you think Jung has what it takes to beat Aldo, or is the featherweight champ going to retain his title? Leave a comment!
