Zombie out, Knight in to face Lamas at UFC 214

An injury has sidelined featherweight contender Chan Sung Jung, forcing "The Korean Zombie" from his UFC 214 bout against Ricardo Lamas. Stepping in to face the No. 3-ranked Lamas will be rising star Jason "The Kid" Knight.

In the UFC 214 main event, which airs live on Pay-Per-View from Honda Center in Anaheim, it’s the long-awaited rematch between UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former titleholder Jon Jones. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 9.

Winner of four straight, Mississippi's Knight is coming off back-to-back Performance of the Night finishes against Alex Caceres and Chas Skelly. But he will be faced with his toughest test to date in Chicago's Lamas, a former world title challenger who has won four of his last six, most recently earning his own Performance of the Night bonus for his submission of Charles Oliveira last November.
