Nam Phan out, "Korean Zombie" in against Leonard Garcia at UFC Fight Night 24

Quote:
An undisclosed injury has forced Nam Phan (16-8 MMA, 0-1 UFC) out of next week's UFC Fight Night 24 event, and replacement Chan Sung Jung (10-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who's better known as the "Korean Zombie," had stepped into the open slot and a rematch with Leonard Garcia (15-6-1 MMA, 2-2 UFC).

UFC officials today announced the change.

The bout will remain on the event televised main card, they confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

UFC Fight Night 24 takes place March 26 at KeyArena in Seattle and airs live on Spike TV.

Jung looks to snap out of a 1-3 skid that included a hotly contested split-decision defeat to Garcia at WEC 48. Jung followed that defeat, which earned him "Fight of the Night" honors and a host of "Fight of the Year" awards, with a shocking head-kick KO loss to George Roop at WEC 51. Jung, who opened his career with a 9-0 mark while fighting in his native South Korea and later in Japan, had been slated to make his UFC debut against Rani Yahya in January before an injury forced him off the card.

Garcia, meanwhile, has posted split decisions or draws in four of his past five fights while going 3-1-1 in them. His most recent victory came via heavily panned split decision over Phan at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale, which led to the initial rematch. The Greg Jackson-trained fighter, who moved from the UFC to the WEC in 2008, appears for the second time since his return to the organization in the wake of the UFC-WEC merger and looks for his third win in four fights.

The latest UFC Fight Night 24 card now includes:

MAIN CARD

* Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Phil Davis
* Dan Hardy vs. Anthony Johnson
* DaMarques Johnson vs. Amir Sadollah
* Leonard Garcia vs. Chan Sung Jungn

PRELIMINARY CARD (un-aired)

* Alex Caceres vs. Mackens Semerzier
* Jon Madsen vs. Mike Russow
* John Hathaway vs. Kris McCray
* Edwin Figueroa vs. Michael McDonald*
* Sean McCorkle vs. Christian Morecraft
* Mario Miranda vs. Aaron Simpson
* Johny Hendricks vs. T.J. Waldburger
* Nik Lentz vs. Waylon Lowe

* - Not officially announced

I like a slug fest from time to time but id rather watch a technical match any day. Coming off 2 losses even if one was controversial i still dont see Zombie risking a slug fest so id say expect a conservative fight from him and a points victory.

Agreed. Machida vs Shogun 1 was a beauty to watch but man, Zombie vs. Garcia got me out of my seat. It was crazy.

Yea, I saw an interview where he said he might have to start learning to how defend strikes but, you know Leonard is still gonna come out swinging.

Can't be a bad fight if Leonard is involved.

I love watching Korean Zombie. I think he takes this but you can never go wrong with Garcia via split decision.
