TORONTO -- Chan Sung Jung, better known as The Korean Zombie, is stepping in for the injured Anthony (Showtime) Pettis against featherweight champion Jose Aldo in the main event of UFC 163.

"Pettis hurt his knee, Korean Zombie will now face Jose Aldo for the title on the Aug card in Rio Brazil," UFC president Dana White tweeted Friday.

The card is scheduled for Aug. 3 at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

The Korean Zombie was slated to meet Ricardo Lamas at UFC 162 on July 6. There was no immediate word on a replacement for Lamas.

Aldo's last scheduled title fight in Brazil at UFC 153 was also switched after opponent Erik Koch, a teammate of Pettis, was injured.
