An injury to featherweight Nam Phan has entrenched a rematch between Chan Sung Jung and Leonard Garcia, at the upcoming March 26th, UFC Fight Night card in Seattle. According to the UFC’s confirmation, Phan was forced to withdraw from his scheduled bout with Garcia due to a broken foot.
Jung (10-3) is coming off a devastating knockout loss to George Roop in September, after “The Korean Zombie” (pictured) lost by split decision to Garcia at WEC last April. The bout was widely considered to be one of the best tilts of the year.
Garcia (15-6-1) has gone 1-1 since his memorable encounter with Jung; at WEC 51 in September, he lost by split decision to Mark Hominick, before scoring a split decision win over Phan at the TUF 12 Finale in December.
UFC Fight Night 24 will be headlined by a light-heavyweight bout between Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Phil Davis. The card, which will be broadcast on Spike, will also feature a notable welterweight bout between Dan Hardy and Anthony Johnson.
