    Chan Sung Jung and Rani Yahya agree to fight at UFC Fight Night 23 | MMAjunkie.com



    A pair of two high-profile featherweights that may be facing a pink slip have agreed to meet at UFC Fight Night 23.

    Chan Sung Jung (10-3 MMA, 0-2 WEC) and Rani Yahya (15-6 MMA, 4-3 WEC) have verbally agreed to meet at the as-yet-unannounced UFC Fight Night 23 event. and bout agreements are expected to be finalized shortly.

    While not yet official, "UFC Fight Night 23: UFC Fight for the Troops 2" is expected to take place Jan. 22 at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas.

    MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps | MMAjunkie.com) confirmed with sources close to the event that verbal agreements are in place, and bout agreements are expected to be finalized shortly. The matchup was first revealed on Portal do Vale Tudo Radio.

    "The Korean Zombie," Jung forever earned in his place in fans' hearts with a razor-thin split-decision loss to Leonard Garcia at WEC 48 that many MMA observers believe is 2010's best fight. Despite the buzz surrounding Jung, the South Korean was stopped cole by a George Roop high kick at WEC 51, dropping Jung's record to 0-2 in the WEC.

    Meanwhile, Yahya is a one-time WEC bantamweight title challenger. The submission ace fell short in his bid against Chase Beebe at WEC 30, though he quickly became a staple of future WEC cards after a one-fight stint at K-1 Premium 2007 Dynamite!!

    Yahya put together a three-fight win streak with the WEC against John Hosman, Eddie Wineland and Yoshiro Maeda, and all three fights saw the Brazilian claim "Submission of the Night" status. However, since then, Yahya has dropped back-to-back outings to Takeya Mizugaki and Jospeh Benavidez.

    Jung vs. Yahya is expected to take place on the evening's preliminary card. It will be both fighters' first bout under the UFC banner.

    OMG, I hope the Korean Zombie's TDD is on point for this match because Rani Yahya's standup makes Jake Shields look like a world-class striker.

    So do we call him The Korean ex-Zombie? The Korean Lively? Is he now un-undead? Did he get brought back to life or did they finally find a cure for the zombie virus?
