A much-anticipated featherweight showdown is scheduled for UFC 162 this summer, as Ricardo Lamas will face Chan Sung Jung – better known as “The Korean Zombie.”
The fight will be part of the July 6 event from Las Vegas, which also boasts a UFC middleweight title match between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman.
Lamas (9-2) has gone a perfect 4-0 since moving to the UFC and 145 pounds, defeating Erik Koch, Hatsu Hioki, Cub Swanson and Matt Grice.
Jung (13-3) was forced to the sidelines last year after a win over Dustin Poirier with rotator cuff surgery. He is 3-0 since joining the Octagon, having also defeated Mark Hominick and Leonard Garcia.
This is a fight that could set a high bar, much like the Jung-Poirier fight did. Both of these two men want a title shot, and will likely leave it all inside the cage to secure the win.
