It looks like Chan Sung Jung is no longer on the UFC 214 card.

Jung was scheduled to fight Ricardo Lamas inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, California on July 29. The bout will have to wait if it ever materializes. Robin Black revealed on Twitter that the “Korean Zombie’s” team has confirmed that the featherweight is injured and has been pulled from the card.

Here’s the tweet:

Jung returned to mixed martial arts (MMA) after almost four years of inactivity back in February. He knocked out Dennis Bermudez in the first round at UFC Fight Night 104. The win saw Jung shoot up to the fifth spot on the featherweight rankings.

Lamas was last seen in action back in Nov. 2016. After a rough opening round, “The Bully” submitted Charles Oliveira in the second stanza. It was a rebound from his June 2016 loss to Max Holloway.

UFC 214 will be headlined by a light heavyweight title rematch. Champion Daniel Cormier will put his title on the line against fierce rival Jon Jones. Another pivotal light heavyweight scrap is being featured on the card. Top ranked 205-pounders Jimi Manuwa and Volkan Oezdemir will compete for a potential title shot.

The pay-per-view portion of UFC 214 airs live at 10 p.m. ET.
