The two were expected to square off October 4 from the Ericcson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden on UFC Fight Pass.
“The Korean Zombie” last fought over a year ago, suffering a loss in August 2013 to featherweight champion Jose Aldo. In defeat, Jung (13-4) left with an injury to his shoulder, the same issue that is reportedly keeping him out of the October fight.
Corassani (12-4) sports a 3-1 UFC record, the same as Jung. No official word has been made by the promotion regarding the injury.
