Meanwhile, Jung, 32, is coming off a convincing bounce-back win over Renato Carneiro at UFC on ESPN+ 12 in June. A win over “T-City” would like catapult him into the title shot conversation where he once was, back in 2013.
UFC on ESPN+ 23 is scheduled for Dec. 21 at the Sajik Arena in Busan, South Korea. Current bouts include:
Alexandre Pantoja (21-4-0) vs. Matt Schnell (14-4-0)
Volkan Oezdemir (16-4-0) vs. Aleksandar Rakic (12-1-0)
More bouts are expected to be announced.
