The UFC has found Chan Sung Jung’s replacement to fight Ricardo Lamas.

As was first reported on Tuesday by the Los Angeles Times’ Lance Pugmire, rising featherweight prospect Jason Knight will be filling in for “The Korean Zombie” at UFC 214 in Anaheim, CA on July 29th. Jung had to withdraw due to (among other things) a ruptured ACL and MCL.

I think this is a great fight. May be early I his career for Knight to face a top five featherweight but good on him for taking this opportunity.

This is sick!! I really have grown to like Knight because he's always willing to throw down. But he got lit up a few times in his last fight. Not too skeptical to think Lamas sleeps Knight. Should be one helluva scrap, though.

Knight had grown on me just liked he had with a lot of folks. You know when he steps in the octagon he's ready to put on a show. I expect nothing different here. He'll come to fight. But i gotta imagine Lamas will be the favorite here. But Knight always going for the finish you can't count him out.

I had Knight over Skelly in his last fight but a lot of people favored Skelly. I think Knight is earning everyone's respect but i think Lamas might be a bit too much right now.

But i know who I'm rooting for. The crazy Hillbilly!

Knight really reminds me of a smaller weight Cerrone. They have similiar body types, similiar stand up style and both aggressive off their backs.

May be too early for Knight but there is no way a fight with him in it could ever be boring or Un-competitive

Lamas should be able to wrestle fuck his way to a decision or land some nasty GNP that cuts Knight up. Knight will taunt him about fighting on the feet but I think Ricardo is too smart for that. He's gonna take Knight down and beat him up there, don't think Knight subs him off his back either...good for Knight stepping up tho, gotta give the guy his props
