Zombie Out, Hollaway Faces Corassani in Stockholm

A shoulder injury has delayed the return of "The Korean Zombie," Chan Sung Jung, to the Octagon on October 4, but Sweden native Akira Corassani did not lack for an opponent very long, as fellow featherweight up and comer Max Holloway will step in for Jung at the Ericsson Arena in Stockholm.

Holloway is fresh from a third-round TKO win over Clay Collard at UFC Fight Night in Tulsa last weekend, his third consecutive victory. Lund native Corassani has won three of his last four bouts heading into his homecoming bout this fall.
