Bukyung Jung will come in as a late injury replacement for Gesias Calvancante against Shinya Aoki in a lightweight bout at Yarennoka!, which will take place on New Year’s Eve at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
The news was posted on the official website for the event earlier today.
Calvancante was forced to pull out of the fight after suffering a setback while recovering from recent knee surgery.
Not much is known about Jung except that he is a former Olympic silver medalist in Judo. Aoki has not fought since he submitted Brian Lo-A-Njoe with an armbar at PRIDE 34: Kamikaze earlier this year.
Touch of gloves to The Fight Network for the find.
