After several unwanted visits from the annoying injury bug, the 12-bout lineup for “UFC 163: Aldo vs. Jung” is finally complete.
Not only was the show’s featured attraction between featherweight king Jose Aldo (pictured) and Anthony Pettis affected by injury, but three other main card bouts also took a hit.
Aldo now defends his throne against “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung, while the UFC did a cut and paste job with the other featured fights.
The only pay-per-view contest that wasn’t touched was the co-main event between light heavyweights Lyoto Machida and Phil Davis.
HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil hosts the August 3 festivities.
