Straight from the Twitter of Dana White:

"Pettis hurt his knee, Korean Zombie will now face Jose Aldo for the title on the Aug card in Rio Brazil."

Hate to say it but Pettis didn't deserve the shot anyway so I don't feel too bad.

Neither does The Korean Zombie.

Agree. Ricardo Lamas does but at least KZ has wins in the weight class.

Yeah, it's a weird system. I'd rather see the UFC postpone the original fight instead of letting Jung fill Pettis' spot.

I'm sure it'll be fun to watch, but Aldo/Jung just feels incredibly pointless to me.

Quite right.

I'm just hoping Pettis goes back up in weight and gets in line for a fight with Bendo. Aldo will eventually meet him there, his kidneys demand it.

Ufc 148 bullshit all over again
Ufc pulling fighters off cards another July Vegas

Was looking forward to zombie fight.

They better get a good replacement to fight lamas
Vegas cards never do get 13 fights but 12.
I don't even care if nik fills in
Get Dennis burmendez to fill

This.
I'm pretty surprised by this matchup.

Korean Zombie is a bigger draw than Lamas. Bottom line.

Is this really that surprising after Sonnen? Atleast Jung has won a fight.

It's not surprising, it's just really unfortunate.

I still don't understand why these guys are only fighting twice a year these days.

I thought Pettis was gonna take the title.... Looks like Aldo will get another title defence then but if Pettis is still the number 1 contender then I'm happy so long as Aldo/Pettis still happens.
